	       Guitar Battle Vs Tom Morello - Tom Morello
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by:
howie_carman

Hi everyone, I've tried to find if someone tabbed this out, but no luck. Instead, I've
to try and tab it out. For just about every bar there is going to be a description of
effects are being used.


Killswitch, and you are using a metal slide on the strings, I'm not sure the proper
name of it. x will represent to flick the killswitch off and on

Tom Morello                                                   x2

Tom actually does this part by getting th feedback from the speaker, and changes
the intonation with his whammy bar, and uses killswitch as well. It's the same
technique for the "Sleep Now In The Fire" solo. I have actually found the note
on the guitar where it sounds the similar. Do which ever is easier.

You                                                                 x2

----------------------------------------------------------------------|
----------------------------------------------------------------------|
----------------------------------------------------------------------|

Once again, killswitch with metal slide. I'm not going to indicate where to
killswitch.

More "Sleep now in the Fire" type soloing, if you want to pick the note, use your
whammy bar to change the intonation.

Toggle killswitch very fast on feedback and use whammy pedal to change the note.

Then you dive bomb with your whammy bar, not pedal.

Now turn on the wah with the perfect 5th on your whammy pedal. You triplet each note
except the first bend. I may not have the notes in the exact order, but it close.

-0b-0-0-0-0-0--0-0-0-0-0-0-0--0-0-0-0--0---0-0-0-0-0-0---0---------------|

---------------------------------------------------------0---------------|
---------------------------------------------------------0---------------|
-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
-------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Let the last note feedback, face your amp, killswitch it while moving the whammy bar to
change intonation. After doing that for a while, divebomb and your done.

First tab I've ever done and probably the hardest I'll ever do. Have fun mastering this one.

How did I get the tab? I slowed the mp3 down with a program I have and went by ear. That's it.
