Down Rodeo by Rage Against The Machine
tabbed by r.allen.canterbury

Notes:  I'm pretty certain this tab is *wrong*.  But there are some tricky
things to figure out...like the high-pitched harmonic sounds I put in.  Not
sure whether that's guitar or bass.  The notes like <4>. mean play a harmonic
but make the note short (staccato) so it's sort of a harmonic "click".  In
general this is how I play it, but I would love to get improvements for it.

I think Timmy C is playing harmonics similar to those heard in Tire Me, 4th fret on ADG strings.
