Subject: TAB:"Be Aggressive" Faith No More

'Lo all,

Here's the tab of Faith No More's "Be Aggressive".  I'm pretty sure what I
have here is fairly accurate.  I didn't tab out the solo though...

First, there's the keyboard part:E-|----------|---------|---------------|--------|---------|--------------|B-|----5--4--|-5-4-5---|---------------|---5--4-|-5-4-5---|--------------|G-|----------|-------4-|-5-------------|--------|-------4-|-5------------|D-|----------|---------|----7--8--7--5-|--------|---------|---7-8--------|A-|----------|---------|---------------|--------|---------|--------------|E-|-0--------|---------|---------------|-0------|---------|--------15\\\-|
Then all the instruments come in and you play this with a real shittydistortion and lots and LOTS of wah:E-|-----------------------|---------------|--------------------B-|-----------------------|---------------|--------------------G-|------7--6--7----------|---------------|------7--6--7-------D-|------6--5--6----------|---------------|------6--5--6------->>>>>A-|------7--6--7----------|-----2-3-4-----|------7--6--7----0--E-|-0--0---------0--7-7-0-|-0-0--------3--|-0--0---------0-----
The first time through the mainriff, play this lead at the end: The second time, do this one:E-|-12-12-12-12---------------------|-------12----14-14-------14/16----------|B-|-12----------15-12----12---------|-0--------12----12----12------(art.harm)|G-|-------------------14----12------|---/13-------------14----------16-16-16-|D-|----------------------------14\--|----------------------------------------|A-|---------------------------------|----------------------------------------|E-|---------------------------------|----------------------------------------|*(art.harm) means artificial harmonics. You don't HAVE to, but if you'reanal and you want it EXACLY like the record, fine, be that way...
There's some other little lead fills besides those two, but I don't think they're really necessary. Those two are the coolest ones anyway.
This here part is for the chorus. Faith No More is not a guitar-basedband so they kinda bury the guitar in most songs. This is mostly justmuting and raking the strings:E-|---------------------------|-------------------------|---------------------|B-|---------------------------|-------------------------|---------------------|G-|---------------------------|-------------------------|---------------------|D-|---x-x---x-x-x---x-x-x-----|-x-x-x--x-x-x--x-x-x-----|-x-x-x--x-x-x--x-x-x-|A-|---x-x-5-x-x-x---x-x-x-4-5-|-x-x-x--x-x-x--x-x-x-5-7-|-x-x-x--x-x-x--x-x-x-|E-|-0-x-x---x-x-x---x-x-x-----|-x-x-x--x-x-x--x-x-x-----|-x-x-x--x-x-x--x-x-x-|
E-|-----------------------|B-|-----------------------|G-|-----------------------|D-|-x-x-x--x-x-x----------|then back to the main riff.A-|-x-x-x--x-x-x--4-5-6-7-|E-|-x-x-x--x-x-x----------|
I don't know exactly WHAT to call this next part but it's in there. Ithink it comes in after the second chorus before going into the keyboardpart from the beginning and then again at the end (outro):E-|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|B-|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|G-|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|D-|---------------------------------3-4-5-6-3-4-5-6-3-4-5-6-3-4-5-6--3-4-5|A-|-4-5-6-7-4-5-6-7-4-5-6-7-4-5-6-7---------------------------------------|E-|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
Anyway, just mix the above riffs together where they should be and you'll at least get something that SOUNDS very much like "Be Aggressive". The solo's just a bunch of noise in E, so I didn't tab it out. If you want it that bad, email me and be REALLY nice and I'll tab it and send it via personal email. Here's the lyrics: I started this. It's all for me. What's yours is mine and mine is mine, that's plain to see. So give it up. I've got to have. I swallow, I swallow, I swallow, I swallow.
(chorus):Be aggressive.B-E aggressive.B-E-A-G-G-R-E-S-S-I-V-E.
Be aggressive.B-E aggressive.B-E-A-G-G-R-E-S-S-I-V-E.
What someone else Would leave behind And spit it out, let go to waste, I claim as mine. You're my flavor Of the week I swallow, I swallow, I swallow, I swallow. Tall and reckless Ugly seed. Reach down my throat you filthy bird. That's all I need! This empty pit. I've got to feed To prove I'm fit. A healthy man I've got to be. Malnutrition My submission. You're the master and I'll take it on my knees. Ejaculation, Tribulation. I swallow, I swallow, I swallow, I swallow. (Cheerleaders: GO, FIGHT, GO, FIGHT, GO, FIGHT, GO, FIGHT, WIN!!!) Paul D. ( OR (
