Subject: TAB:"Be Aggressive" Faith No More

'Lo all,

Here's the tab of Faith No More's "Be Aggressive".  I'm pretty sure what I
have here is fairly accurate.  I didn't tab out the solo though...


First, there's the keyboard part:
E-|----------|---------|---------------|--------|---------|--------------|
B-|----5--4--|-5-4-5---|---------------|---5--4-|-5-4-5---|--------------|
G-|----------|-------4-|-5-------------|--------|-------4-|-5------------|
D-|----------|---------|----7--8--7--5-|--------|---------|---7-8--------|
A-|----------|---------|---------------|--------|---------|--------------|
E-|-0--------|---------|---------------|-0------|---------|--------15\\\-|


Then all the instruments come in and you play this with a real shitty
distortion and lots and LOTS of wah:
E-|-----------------------|---------------|--------------------
B-|-----------------------|---------------|--------------------
G-|------7--6--7----------|---------------|------7--6--7-------
D-|------6--5--6----------|---------------|------6--5--6------->>>>>
A-|------7--6--7----------|-----2-3-4-----|------7--6--7----0--
E-|-0--0---------0--7-7-0-|-0-0--------3--|-0--0---------0-----


The first time through the main
riff, play this lead at the end:      The second time, do this one:
E-|-12-12-12-12---------------------|-------12----14-14-------14/16----------|
B-|-12----------15-12----12---------|-0--------12----12----12------(art.harm)|
G-|-------------------14----12------|---/13-------------14----------16-16-16-|
D-|----------------------------14\--|----------------------------------------|
A-|---------------------------------|----------------------------------------|
E-|---------------------------------|----------------------------------------|
*(art.harm) means artificial harmonics.  You don't HAVE to, but if you're
anal and you want it EXACLY like the record, fine, be that way...

There's some other little lead fills besides those two, but I don't think
they're really necessary.  Those two are the coolest ones anyway.

This here part is for the chorus.  Faith No More is not a guitar-based
band so they kinda bury the guitar in most songs.  This is mostly just
muting and raking the strings:
E-|---------------------------|-------------------------|---------------------|
B-|---------------------------|-------------------------|---------------------|
G-|---------------------------|-------------------------|---------------------|
D-|---x-x---x-x-x---x-x-x-----|-x-x-x--x-x-x--x-x-x-----|-x-x-x--x-x-x--x-x-x-|
A-|---x-x-5-x-x-x---x-x-x-4-5-|-x-x-x--x-x-x--x-x-x-5-7-|-x-x-x--x-x-x--x-x-x-|
E-|-0-x-x---x-x-x---x-x-x-----|-x-x-x--x-x-x--x-x-x-----|-x-x-x--x-x-x--x-x-x-|

E-|-----------------------|
B-|-----------------------|
G-|-----------------------|
D-|-x-x-x--x-x-x----------|then back to the main riff.
A-|-x-x-x--x-x-x--4-5-6-7-|
E-|-x-x-x--x-x-x----------|

I don't know exactly WHAT to call this next part but it's in there.  I
think it comes in after the second chorus before going into the keyboard
part from the beginning and then again at the end (outro):
E-|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
B-|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
G-|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
D-|---------------------------------3-4-5-6-3-4-5-6-3-4-5-6-3-4-5-6--3-4-5|
A-|-4-5-6-7-4-5-6-7-4-5-6-7-4-5-6-7---------------------------------------|
E-|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|

Anyway, just mix the above riffs together where they should be
and you'll at least get something that SOUNDS very much like "Be
Aggressive".  The solo's just a bunch of noise in E, so I didn't tab it out.
If you want it that bad, email me and be REALLY nice and I'll tab it and
send it via personal email.

Here's the lyrics:

I started this.
It's all for me.
What's yours is mine and mine is mine, that's plain to see.
So give it up.
I've got to have.
I swallow, I swallow, I swallow, I swallow.

(chorus):
Be aggressive.
B-E aggressive.
B-E-A-G-G-R-E-S-S-I-V-E.
Be aggressive.
B-E aggressive.
B-E-A-G-G-R-E-S-S-I-V-E.

What someone else
Would leave behind
And spit it out, let go to waste, I claim as mine.
You're my flavor
Of the week
I swallow, I swallow, I swallow, I swallow.

Tall and reckless
Ugly seed.
Reach down my throat you filthy bird. That's all I need!
This empty pit.
I've got to feed
To prove I'm fit. A healthy man I've got to be.
Malnutrition
My submission.
You're the master and I'll take it on my knees.
Ejaculation,
Tribulation.
I swallow, I swallow, I swallow, I swallow.

(Cheerleaders: GO, FIGHT, GO, FIGHT, GO, FIGHT, GO, FIGHT, WIN!!!)
