I only saw one tab of this song and that was really dumb, "just play this riff many times,
and thats it". That is why I made this tab, the first tab of 'Free Speech For The Dumb' with
some quality.
If you want to add this tab on your site then please leave the tab as it is. If you are not sure
that you have the orginal tab mail me. Also, if somebody is using my tab then please mail me.
You can always get the newest verion of the tab at my website.
If you see any white lines between the guitar lines, then make sure you resolution is
1024 x 768 or greater and that you are using Notepad.
Well, let's play this song.
NOTE TUNE: (tune down 1,5 step)
(1)=C# (4)=B
(2)=G# (5)=F#
(3)=E (6)=C#
NOTE: The first two measures are now referred as Riff 1:
 
 2--------------|-----------5
 0--0-0-0-0-0-0-|-0-0-0-0-0-3

Also NOTE: This is a hard solo, and the bends are hard to tap, just look carefully
There may be a bunch of glithes, just mail me, if you find one.
