I didn't tab this, but thought I'd submit it as there are no other tabs for this song on 
site. Also it's a great song, and cool to play. Once again, full credit to Aidan 
for tabbing it.

Track: Fall of the bastille
Available: Racecar is racecar backwards and old XFM Session
Tabbed by: Aidan O'Brien
http://www.fallofthebastille.co.uk

It's done. It took me ages. I'm happy with it. A general rule with the loud parts of this
song is "if in doubt, make lots of noise".

I've tried to tab the rhythm but just try and do it by ear - its quite tricky to tab.
