Rage Against the Machine (Evil Empire)

 

YEAR OF THA BOOMERANG - tabbed by Stephen Quinlan

 

 

Here's all the main riffs I can think off. Use them in whatever order they

appear. I'm not sure about any of this since I've never seen the song being

played by the band.

 

Dropped D tuning

 

X= Strike Muted Strings (D=Down stroke,U=Up Stroke)

h= harmonic

h/o = hammer on

p/o = pull off

 

1)Main riff. Use Neck Pickup.

h/o U h/o D U D

The sistas are..

 

3)Whammy Bit.

Set Whammy on Double Octave Up. Use neck pickup, and adjust Volume to about

half way to eliminate the unwanted Noise caused by the delightful Whammy Pedal

6)I cant describe the final "go crazy on the whammy pedal" bit other than

use the whammy on double octave up setting, pick really fast and hard and

end it on a couple of bends.
