"Sabotage" by The Beastie Boys


This is a correction to the tab which has been online for a while
but is unfortunately not quite correct.
I have used the existing file to create this one so this isn't an entirely
new tab.

N.B. Play with the roughest overdrive you can and try to strum it with a pick, muting
the A, D and G strings appropriatly and hammering on to the C# on the D string
when neccesary, this is how Adam Yauch plays it live.

For example:

G---X----X----11----|
D---X----X----X-----|
A---11---11---11----|
E---X----X----X-----|

If you have a live video of the Beastie Boys you'll know what
I'm talking about, but if not try to get one 'cause this is a fairly weird
thing to try to describe.

The main figure:

G---------11--------11------11------11------11---------------|
D------------------------------------------------------------|
A--/11-11---11-11-11---11-11---11-11---11-11---11-11-11-11---|
E------------------------------------------------------------|

The fill line:

G------------------4----|
D--------------4--------|
A---------4--6---6------|
E----4--6---------------|

That's about it, its a good tune and quite easy apart from the strumming technique
which takes ages to perfect.

1) it's not that hard to play the main riff the way you say and 2) you are missing most of the song with this. there's a breakdown-type part, the outro, and the fill changes a few times...all in all 3 stars for effort

I think its an octave lower, but you got the fill right! 3 stars
