Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics
Major upgrade!! After one year development the new version of Chordie is now online! Please give feedback.


Refuse/Resist  Sepultura

Subject: TAB: Sepultura, Refuse/Resist...
Okay, i got enough feedback to make me believe there are a few sepultura fans
out there..
I seems to be getting some extra carriage returns when i do an ASCII upload..
if anybody knows how i could fix this, let me know.. well, i'll give it a
whirl... cross your fingers, everybody!..
REFUSE/RESIST as recorded by Sepultura
From the Epic/Roadrunner Records release CHAOS A.D.
Words by Max Cavalera/Music by Sepultura
Transcribed by Highwayman
Okay, here we go boys... for my first attempt at PC transcription, I have
selected REFUSE/RESIST, a boss tune by Sepultura.. Everything's in here,
including the solo... good luck with it! My suggestion is just to throw
on the wah (you -do- have a wah pedal, don't ya?) and just let 'er rip...
Get the basic feel and rhythm of the solo; people will notice that more
than they notice whether you hit individual notes correctly or not.. the
song's speed is about 120, or 'moderate rock'.. the whole mess is tuned
down a full step (6=D, 5=G, 4=C, 3=F, 2=A, 1=D)... you can probably get
away with playing it tuned up, but you won't quite get the low, moshy
sound that characterizes Sepultura...
Let's run through an explanation of the different parts real quick... in
the beginning, both guitars come in with riff 'A' four times and move into
riff 'B' four times... then, guitar one continues with riff 'B' four more
times while guitar two kicks on the wah and plays the higher, harmonized
riff 'B1'... then, we move into the first verse, which is all throughly
transcribed... afterwards, riff 'B' kicks back in.. we then move into the
second verse, and then into the chorus ("Refuse! Resist!")... watch the
tempo change here after the solo; it goes from fast back to moderate real
quickly, and ya gotta 'hit' the tempo change perfectly... finally, we go
into the third verse, and a final chorus... the song wraps up with riff
'B', then riff 'A' again...
Okay, if you don't understand tablature, I'm gonna append an explanation
at the end to help you out.. if you don't have a copy of Chaos A.D., pick
one up!.. Sepultura's a great band, and you won't be disappointed... if
you liked this file, and wanna see more transcriptions from me in the
future or you'd like to put in a request, I can be reached as 1@13011,
RenegadeNET.. or, call my BBS "The Sanitarium" at (41o) 838-oo82... enjoy!

chord progression:

(mute
strings)
A#5 C#5 E5(VII)
A#5 X X C#5 E5(VII) E5(VII)

Verse Chords:
 
 -------------

E E E E E5 (E5) F5 G5 G#5 (play 8 times total)
-palm mute-
Play Riff B 3 times between 1st and 2nd verses
Continue Second Verse with the above verse chords
Chorus:
 
 -------

(Right after the lyric, "What is this shit?")
[C5] [C5] [C5] [C5] [C5] [G#5] [G#5] [G#5] [G#5] [E5] 
Note: (the E5 chord lands right on the word, "Refuse" - this is so you
you can have a feel where the song is going)
(continuing after the word "Refuse")
A#5(VI) A#5(VI) A#5(VI) A#5(VI) A#5(VI) A#5(VI) G#5 E5
Note: (again, to clarify where you are in the song, the G#5 chord lands
on the syllable "Re" in the word "Resist" and the E5 chord lands
on the "sist" syllable. The A#5(VI) chords are the 'filler' chords
between the words "Refuse" and "Resist")
(continuing on after the last E5 chord from above)
[C5] [C5] [C5] [C5] [G#5] [G#5] [E5]  
Note: (again,the E5 chord lands on the word "Refuse" again)
(continuing on again from the above chords)
A#5(VI) A#5(VI) A#5(VI) A#5(VI) A#5(VI) A#5(VI) A#5(VI) G#5
Note: (here the song, following the above G#5 chord, goes into a different
tempo, preparing the song for the ensuing solo. These following
will lead up to the solo)
Before Solo

Chord Progression:
[D5] [C#5] [C#5] [G#5] [G5] [G5] [D5] [C#5] [C#5] [D5] [C#5] [C#5] [G#5] [G5] [G5] [D5] [C#5] 
[C#5] [D5] [C#5]  
Note: (the timing on these chords is way off. Listen to the song to get
the accurate feel, something similiar to a two-chord progression
broken up by one chord in the middle:
dee-duh, da, dee-duh, da, dee-duh)
