        The tab for this in Nevada is complete crap - so here's my stuff.
	The first riff is


        E-------------------------------------------------x-x-x---------
        B-------------------------------------------------x-x-x---------
        G-------------------------------------------------x-x-x---------
        D---------------------------------------------------------------
        A---5-------3---------5-5----5-------3---------5----------------
        E-----0-3-5---5-3-5-3----0-3---0-3-5---5-3-5-3------------------

        this is repeated often ! Except that the last 3 notes are replaced
        with

        E---------------------------------------------------------------
        B---------------------------------------------------------------
        G---------------------------------------------------------------
        D---------------------------------5-4-3-------------------------
        A------12 slide down to 5---OR----------5-4-3-------------------
        E------12 slide down to 5---------------------------------------

        and other noises which are easy to follow.


        The riff over the verses is below ( Nevada is CRAP at this point )

        E---12-----12--12----12-12-12-----12---12-12--------------------
        B---10-----10--10----10-10-10-----10---10-10------5-4-5-5-------
        G---12-----12--12----12-12-12-----12---12-12------5-4-5-5-------
        D---10-----10--10----10-10-10-----10---10-10------5-4-5-5-------
        A---------------------------------------------------------------
        E------0-0-------0-0----------0-0---0-0-----0-0-----------------

        repeat etc


        The following riff is played after "anger is a gift"

        E---------------------------------------------------------------
        B---------------------------------------------------------------
        G---------------------------------------------------------------
        D---------------------------------------------------------------
        A----3-3-3-3-----5-5-3---3-5--repeat etc------------------------
        E------------5-3-------5----------------------------------------

        this changes to

        E---------------------------------------------------------------
        B---------------------------------------------------------------
        G----5-5-5-5-5-5-7-7-7-7-5-7  repeat etc------------------------
        D---------------------------------------------------------------
        A---------------------------------------------------------------
        E---------------------------------------------------------------


	The following riff also occurs

        E---------------------------------------------------------------
        B---------------------------------------------------------------
        G---------------------------------------------------------------
        D----------------5-3-5-3-5-------------------3------------------
        A------5-3-5-3-5----------3-2-3-2-3----------3------------------
        E----------------------------------5-3-5-3-5-3---repeat---------


        Towards the end as the vocals first start with >
        the guitar goes

        E---------------------------------------------------------------
        B---------------------------------------------------------------
        G-----------5-6-7-----------------------------------------------
        D---3-4-5-7----------repeat etc---------------------------------
        A-5-------------------------------------------------------------
        E---------------------------------------------------------------


        this then changes at the end bit to

        E---------------------------------------------------------------
        B-------------------------------------------------3-------------
        G-------------------------------------------------2-------------
        D------------2-5-6-7---repeat etc end chord is ---0-------------
        A--0--3-4-5--0-3-4-5------------------------------0-------------
        E--0--3-4-5---------------------------------------0-------------


        The rest of the song is just a variation on these with added
        scrapes etc.

        As with most of their songs tune the guitar dow to D.

Here is the tab to "Freedom" by Rage Against The Machine.
Transcribed by Greg Bundy.


Dropped D Tuning

Riff 1
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
-----5-------3-------5-5-----5-------3-------5--x-x-x-x---------------------
-------0-3-5---5-3-5-----0-3---0-3-5---5-3-5----x-x-x-x---------------------


Then the next part goes like this.

Riff 2
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
-----15-----15-15---------15---15-15-------15-----15-15---------------------
-----14-----14-14---------14---14-14-------14-----14-14---------------------
-----12-----12-12---------12---12-12-------12-----12-12---------------------
-----12-----12-12---------12---12-12-------12-----12-12----------10-9-10-10- 
--------0-0-------0-0-0-0--------------0-0----0-0-------0-0-0-0--10-9-10-10-


Then it goes back to Riff 1, and Riff 2.  This is followed by a break in 
whick only the drums and bass plays.

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

Riff 3
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
---------------------------------------------------------------------------- 
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
-----3-3-3-3-3-3-5--5-5-5-3-5-----------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Play this four times.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------- 
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
---------------------------------------------------------------------------- 
------5-5-5-5-5-5-7--7-7-7-5-7----------------------------------------------
------3-3-3-3-3-3-5--5-5-5-3-5----------------------------------------------
------------------0--0-0-0---0----------------------------------------------  

Play this four times.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
------4-4-4-4-4-4-6--6-6-6-4-6----------------------------------------------
------5-5-5-5-5-5-7--7-7-7-5-7----------------------------------------------
------5-5-5-5-5-5-7--7-7-7-5-7----------------------------------------------
------3-3-3-3-3-3-5--5-5-5-3-5----------------------------------------------
------------------0--0-0-0---0----------------------------------------------

Play this four times.  On the fourth time hold the last chord.

It then plays a solo, which I don't know.  If anyone does please post it.

Then it plays a new riff.
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/r/rage_against_the_machine/freedom_tab.html ]
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
----------------5-3-5-3-5---------------------------------------------------
-----5-3-5-3-5------------3-2-3-2-3---------------3-------------------------
-------------------------------------5-3-5-3-5-3--3-------------------------

Next it goes to a variation of Riff 2, ending with a slide.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
-----15-----15-15---------15-\\\\slide\\\\\\\-------------------------------
-----14-----14-14---------14-\\\\slide\\\\\\\-------------------------------
-----12-----12-12---------12-\\\\slide\\\\\\\-------------------------------
-----12-----12-12---------12-\\\\slide\\\\\\\-------------------------------
--------0-0-------0-0-0-0----\\\\slide\\\\\\\-------------------------------

This slide is made by running the palm of your left hand up the strings
starting at the first fret.

Then it goes back to Riff 2.

The end of the song goes:
Play this softly with no distortion. (Normally played by bass)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------- 
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
--------------------3--4--5-------------------------------------------------
-----0--3--5--6--7----------------------------------------------------------

Next, with heavy distortion:

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
--------------------5--6--7-------------------------------------------------
-----0--3--5--6--7--3--4--5-------------------------------------------------
-----0--3--5--6--7----------------------------------------------------------

This is a great song to play because of all the changes in it.
Enjoy!

MARTIN WIKSTROM, SUNDSVALL, SWEDEN

Ok here is my try on Freedom.
First detune your E string to D. DADGBe.

Note! When I picked this out I used my acoustic guitar (since I dont
have a electric anymore) so there might be some mistakes but who 
cares ?

  p= Pull off
  h= Hammer on
  b= Bend one full step. (2 Frets).
  /= Slide up
  \= Slide down
