It's a great tab, but it deserves a 4-star. A few things are missing:

beginning of the song he goes:
G|-7--------7--------7--------7----|
D|-7--------7--------7--------7----|
A|-5--------5--------5--------5----|
D|---------------------------------|

he mutes
G|----------------------------|
D|------------3h4-------------|
A|----3h5---------5-----------|
D|-0------X-X--------0-2h3-2--|

He mutes and G string works, but I find it easier using the D
G|----------------------------------------------------|
D|------------9------------8-----------7--------------|
A|----3h5----------3h5---------3h5--------------------|
D|-0------X-X---0------X-X---0-----X-X---0-2h3-2h3-2--|

mutes again and way off
G|--------|-----------|-----------------------------|
D|--------|-----------|-----------------------------|
A|-5-5--5-|-5-5--X--5-|-5-5--X--5----5----X------3--|
D|--------|-----------|----------------------3-5----|

hey "stevieguy9" why dont you just post the tab?
-6   October 14 2006, 12:08 am by thisnamebecool |
How come everyone misses the variation in the guitar solo!!!!!!!!!!!
It happens at 4:00 in the song so you can listen for yourselves
I think its something like this but i won't mind corrections.
G -------------------
D -------------------
A 5-5----5--5---5-7-3
D -------------------

Its something along those lines i think.
Someone please try and tab it
-1   October 14 2006, 10:37 pm by thisnamebecool |
actually i think the variation is
G -------------------
D ------------------5
A 5-5----5--5---7-8--
E -------------------

Its also played near end of the song where the guitar riff changes.
-4   October 14 2006, 10:38 pm by thisnamebecool |
Dammit i'm well aware the E is drpped down to D!

-5   December 17 2006, 11:15 pm by squier-sucks132 |
dude, i just wanted to say excellent tab i played it and it sounds pretty much excactly like tim plays it i give this tab 5 stars all the way
-5   February 3 2007, 12:15 am by Patdi |
intro is 5th on A with a flanger
-4   February 16 2007, 04:20 pm by Masturbasser |
StevieGuy9 is perfectly right with the corrections. I gave it a 4. Its pretty close.

Here's a link to a perfect tab of this song. http://www.bassmasta.net/r/rage_against_the_machine/166090.html
-4   February 28 2007, 04:55 pm by Werunformiles |
nice job it sounds great.
-5   March 29 2007, 05:40 am by bassboy 999 |
I think the bass moves with the guitar in the mad swaering part. Thats what our band does, I slide up the scale and eventually end up on high D. Then you can slide back down when the vocalist starts screaming "**** you i wont do what you tell me". Sounds great.

Great tab btw, good man.
-1   May 13 2007, 11:19 am by maggotblood16 |
the intro is low D four times i have the Bass Player issue to prove it. Rest of the song is great.
-4   June 26 2007, 02:36 pm by peacesells |
stevieguy is right exept his intro
-10   September 14 2007, 05:35 am by nave69 |
**** off StevieGuy9, no need to get so technical, great tab mate.
-9   September 16 2007, 02:34 pm by mathies621 |
its wrong bitch
-7   September 16 2007, 02:35 pm by mathies621 |
jk its great
-2   September 23 2007, 09:23 pm by xbox360nerd4 |
This was my second song 2 learn from tabs and it rocks.It might not be right,im not sure,but it does sound a lot like it.My band is playin this song at my talent show.Thanx for puttin it on here.
-2   November 22 2007, 06:29 am by metaldevil666 |
pretty good tab, but your missing some key ingredients.
take the tab you have right now, and put in the things
Stevieguy9 pointed out in. the ghost notes in the riff and chorus are allmost irreplaceble.
I give it a 3 but this one
is WAY WAY better than any other killing in the name of tab there is here.
-4   December 1 2007, 09:56 pm by kwsevenfold |
im no pro but i think the variation is just slightly off (it could just be that im mistuned)
its sounds better to me
as:

G|--------------------------------11--|
D|-----------------------10-11-12-----|
A|----3h5--8h9--10-11-12-------
-------|
D|-0----------------------------------|

but other that that nice job
-7   December 1 2007, 10:29 pm by kwsevenfold |
G|--------------------------------11--|
D|-----------------------10-11-12-----|
A|----3h5--8h9--10-11-12--------------
|
D|-0----------------------------------|

sry bout the double comment (im kind of a perfectionist)
-5   December 1 2007, 10:30 pm by kwsevenfold |
...so much for that
-8   December 1 2007, 10:30 pm by kwsevenfold |

Tab is definitely missing a few notes and has some errors
It would also be nice if you showed how many times you repeat
everything
Overall its a fairly close tab though
3 Stars

It never ceases to amaze me how unintuitive a lot of bass players are. If you can't work out rhythm and order, should you really be the "base" of the song? =/
I thought it was a good tab, gave it 4/5, missing the ghost notes like that dude up there said, but really that's just a little nitpicky...
-2   February 18 2008, 10:34 am by Ted Fitz |
I think it's a great song, and the ghost notes don't really matter. They do sound hella cool though. 5 Stars because the tabs and these comments are perfect.
-4   February 24 2008, 08:58 pm by 11lewist |
pretty much correct down to the last note, i did it in standard tuning and it still sounded okay but 5 out of 5, definately
-6   June 17 2008, 05:28 pm by Cheapm0nkey |
Great tab, only when it goes:
G|--------------------------------10--|
D|-----------------------10-11-12-----|
A|----3h5--8h9--10-11-12--------------|
D|-0----------------------------------|

I find it easier to play it like:
G|--------------------------5/6/7---10|
D|----------3h4----5h6h7--------------|
A|----3h5-----------------------------|
D|-0----------------------------------|
-4   June 17 2008, 05:29 pm by Cheapm0nkey |
Even though they are the same notes.
-6   June 18 2008, 03:01 am by Strausser33 |

-4   July 2 2008, 01:12 pm by jdanger |

-6   August 17 2008, 11:01 pm by dvr555 |

-5   December 17 2008, 05:16 pm by iplaybass5 |

-3   December 23 2008, 10:31 am by Guitarfan11 |

-2   December 23 2008, 10:40 am by Guitarfan11 |

-2   December 23 2008, 10:41 am by Guitarfan11 |
you missed some things but still its really good
-3   December 23 2008, 10:42 am by Guitarfan11 |
beast though you are sick just why they have to cuss it kinda ruins it but man they rock
+5   February 22 2009, 11:32 pm by jman200801 |
well i didn't like this tab at all because first of all it didn't go in to detail at all and second there are only fragments of the song and i wanted to learn the whole entire song that's why i went to the 2nd version which is a 100 times better except for a few mistakes but those can be fixed by listening to the song but any ways this tab is an should be taken down
February 28 2009, 02:52 pm by DzasterThe13th |
Pretty sweet tab man ^^

thanks alot
+5   March 8 2009, 10:44 am by billyf93 |
wheres there so many comments with thumbs down? all people are trying to do is show what they prefer so stop being a bunch of dickheads and just let people have an opinion.
-1   May 10 2009, 01:05 pm by 12308520 |
very good done.. 4* - the mutes are not incluted, and the first intro

September 15 2009, 04:44 am by rab182 |

+1   May 18 2010, 10:19 pm by kvtheboss18 |

January 10 2012, 07:16 am by widenaren |
i think this tab is real good and it sounds good too
June 16 2012, 12:24 am by Thedoors1969 |
The whole reason to become a musician is to be original. Your supposed to put your own twist on stuff to have your own sound. Just use this as a base, figure your own shit out.
March 31 2013, 11:05 pm by nevedy |
there are NO tabs on this page?
March 29 2014, 01:50 pm by MetalFrancis |
