Note: the above left measure is repeated
late in the song. The song then jumps to
the beginning of the chorus.

Solo:

From Guitar World Magazine, December 2002

GUITAR WORLD: The solo for "What You Are" is cool.
There's a filtered wah sound that alternates
with some kind of pitch bend sound.

TOM MORELLO: That's all one performance, with
a wah-wah pedal. It's three parts.
The initial "waooh" is a low B and it's followed
by hitting all the string above the nut, which
makes sort of a high-end sound. Then the third
part is with the whammy pedal set to a fifth,
and I'm just manipulating the whammy bar on
the guitar to play that little shaky melody.
Then, at the end of each of the phrases,
that's just toggling while making the bar go
through the sweep of the pedal. It sounds much
more complicated than it is.

--
Whatever, Tom!
