/ Rage Against The Machine / Evil Empire (1996) / Down Rodeo guitar tab

Guitar Tab for Down Rodeo
From: Ryan from Utah

Standard Tuning

Notation:
b=bend
r=return
h=hammer-on
I think that's all you'll need for this song.

Chorus/Intro fig.

      (end fig., repeat)

When you make the transition from this figure to the next, eliminate the

part I set aside that looks like new bar.

     (over and over again)

This is played while another guitar comes in and rubs the pick across
one of the lower-note strings.  I think.  After all, Tom does some
pretty weird, but cool, things when he plays.....

The last part is just Tom playing a high "F" on the "D" string's 14 fret

to a regular pattern.  Or maybe it's on the "B" string's 14 fret, I
can't remember which.  It's easy to figure out.  Then the final chord is

just this.....
