Bulls On Parade by Rage Against the Machine
Tabbed by Joe

This is an awesome song and definitely worth learning.All the other tabs I have read are wrong
because for the intro they use an F sharp instead of an F. This is my first tab so go 
on me.

The next part is with a Wah Wah pedal.
Push it down on every down stroke,

For the scratch part you need a guitar with a three way pickup selector switch.
Volume settings are Rythym:0 Treble:10. Flick your switch on and off while scratching 
strings
with your fingernails/pick to give the added DJ effect. You have to get it just right 
it to
sound good.

The last parts of the song are the first Wah Wah part (F) followed by the intro.

I'm fairly certain that the song is in Eb not standard

On the recording it's in Eb tuning, when it's played live it's in Standard.
