Freedom Bass Tab

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

Dropped D Tuning

Riff 1
G----------------------------------------------------------------------------
D----------------------------------------------------------------------------
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!)
G----------------------------------------------------------------------------
D------------------------------------------------5-4-3-----------------------
A-----5-------3-------5-5-----5-------3-------5--------5-4-3-----------------
D-------0-3-5---5-3-5-----0-3---0-3-5---5-3-5--------------------------------



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------|
D-----------------------------------|
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/r/rage_against_the_machine/freedom_btab.html ]
                                                4 TIMES
G------------------------------------------------------|
D*--------------5-3-5-3-5-----------------------------*|
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*---------------------------------------*|
A*-----------------0--3--4--5------------*|
D--------3--5--6--------------------------|

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