"My interpretation of Rage Against The Machine's Song FREEDOM"

Dropped D Tuning

Riff 1

A—————5———————3———————5—5—————5———————3———————5——————————————————————————————
D———————0—3—5———5—3—5—————0—3———0—3—5———5—3—5————————————————————————————————

(the ending of riff 1 is actually varied some——so ad lib at will!)

Riff 1 Variant: (this is played instead of Riff 1 a few times——you can hear
when to use it——just listen to the CD!)

Then the next part goes like this.

Riff 2 for a short while...
G————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————
D————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————
A————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————
D———0——0——R——0——0——R——0——0——R——0——0——R——0——0——R——0——0——R——0——0————————————


Then it goes back to Riff 1, and Riff 2. This is followed by a short
interlude where only the drums and bass are playing.

After spoken: "Anger is a gift..."

Riff 3 X a bunch
G———————————————————————————————————|
D———————————————————————————————————|
A—————3—3—3—3—3—3—5——5—5—5—3—5——————|

4 TIMES

A*———5—3—5—3—5————————————3—2—3—2—3———————————————————*|
D—————————————————————————————————————5—3—5—3—5—3——————|

Do Riff 2 again.

Last Riff:
The guitar plays this part softly 4 times, then the bass joins in.
The guitar gets distorted after a few times then. Be careful, this riff
is played the same over and over for bass, but the song has a change in
accent, thanks to the drums.
x lots of times
G—————————————————————————————————————————|
D*———————————————————————————————————————*|

D————————3——5——6——————————————————————————|

Oh...anyways. You get the jist of it. The riffs are there. Just feel
the music.
