Hey all. This is my rendition of Ashes in the Fall by Rage Against the Machine. There may 
be minor errors but it all seems right to my ear. You will need a whammy pedal and some 
mid-tempo delay. Maybe a wah to boost the higher frequencies but that can be done with a 
simple EQ. Anyhoo, here's the tab, it is my first so please excuse errors. I find it to 
be a quite excellent song, big shame they fell apart.

-E

tuning: Drop D (low to high: dadgbe)

Song: Ashes in the Fall
Band: Rage Against the Machine
Album: The Battle of Los Angeles

w/whammy set 1 octave up

w/whammy and delay

Fig 2.  End Fig 2.
e-----------------  *use whammy to slide down while delay repeats the slide

whammy, delay both off

d--5--5--5--5--5--5--5--5--

Repeat Fig 2.

Repeat Fig 3.

Repeat Fig 1.

Now in this part I'm not too sure on how to get the various harmonics going
Just play around with it til you get something that sounds like it should

Fig 4.     End Fig 4.
e--------------------
b--------------------
g--------------------
d--0----3----0----3--  and so on
a--0----3----0----3--
d--0----3----0----3--

Unfortunately, this is another riff that is fairly elusive to my ears. it sounds correct 
to me but I'm not 100% sure.

Fig 5.                                            End Fig 5.

Repeat Fig 3.

Fig 6.    End Fig 6.
e-------------------
b--<7>-----<7>------
g------<7>-----<7>--
d-------------------

For Fig 7. Just play an A at 10 on the B string and mess with the whammy pedal while 
fading out

That should be it for the song!

Very nice tab but it would be helpful to show us where these riffs go during the song
