Rage Against The Machine - Fistful Of Steel
Tabbed By: Tim Hall
EMail: RunningFromSatan
Album: Rage Against The Machine (1992)
Guitarist: Tom Morello

KEY:
b - Bend        /  - Slide up
r - Release     \  - Slide down
h - Hammer on   <> - Natural harmonics
~ - Vibe        pm - Palm mute

SETUP:
Standard Tuning (EADGBE)
Digitech Whammy
Metal slide
Whammy bar (not necessary)

INTRO:  This is a neat kind of motorized sound.  Set the Whammy pedal 
2 oct. up, and trem pick a muted E-string while moving the pedal up 
and down slowly.  End by picking all open strings with pedal fully 
depressed, then move on to chorus.

CHORUS (whammy off):

B |---------------------0--<7>----|---------------------0--<12>--0--|
G |---------------------0--<7>----|---------------------0--<12>--0--|

E |-0h2-2--x-x--0h2-2-------------|-0h2-2--x-x--0h2-2------------------|

(not exactly tabbed, experiment with different harmonics when needed)

Repeat the same pattern 3x, ending on:

E |------------------------------------|
B |------------------------------------|
G |------------------------------------|
D |--------x-x----------12--x--12--12--| <----sustain this note
A |-2-4-4--x-x--2-4-4---12--x--12---x--|
E |-0h2-2--x-x--0h2-2---12--x--12---x--|

VERSE 1 (Whammy on, 2 oct.):

D |---14----|

Pick note, then raise/lower the pitch with whammy pedal or whammy bar 
accordingly.  Repeat 8x (use the whammy bar for some vibe on the 
8th repeat & sustain).

PRE-CHORUS (Whammy on):

E |------------------------------------|-0---------------|
B |------------------------------------|-0---------------|
G |------------------------------------|-0---------------|
D |-volume swell for feedback----------|-0---------------|

D |---------x-------------------|
A |-2---4---x-7---9-8-7-0-9-8-7-|

VARIATION:  The "laughing guitar" part I believe is done by the bass, 
but if you have a second guitarist this works -- rub the 3 wound 
strings while SLIGHTLY rocking whammy pedal.

SOLO 2 (I did not tab some of this, some of it's not correct but it's 
close -- I made a few corrections that I think seem right):

E |-14-14-14----------17-17-17----------|

on the main riff i found it's easier (and to me sounds more like it) if you play it like this
