                Bullet In the Head by RATM


 This is a correction of a pretty good tab by R.Allen Canterbury
 which only had a couple of little niggles.

 Firstly, no pick!
 Tim Commerford has never used a pick on a RATM record that I know 
 of (although I may be wrong) and certainly never uses one live
 no matter what certain transcriptions, especially Guitar World's
 "Ghost of Tom Joad (live)," may say.  If you're gonna make muted noises
 you need to make them with your fingers, not a pick.

 This riff is based around what Tom Morello refers to as a Hendrix chord:

 This is EADGBE: 076780 on a six string guitar or 0767 on bass.

 Its the chord that Purple Haze is based around and it crops up
 in RATM songs like Vietnow and Testify.

 Verse riff:

 G-----------------7--
 D-----------------6--
 A--7-7--7-7-7--------
 E--------------0-----

 Occasionally, it varies as:

 G------------------6/7--
 D------------------5/6--
 A--7-7---7-7-7----------
 E---------------0-------

 or

 G----------------------7~9---
 D------------------7~9-------
 A--7-7---7-7-7---------------
 E---------------0------------

 And in the live long form video he varies it at one point as:

 G-------------------7--
 D-------------------6--
 A--7-7-----------------
 E----------------0-----

 Chorus:

 G-----------------------------------
 D-----------------------------------
 A----------0--------2-------0-------
 E--0---3----------------3-------0---

 Outro:

 G-----------------------------------
 D-----------------------------------
 A--7-7-7-7-7-5----------------------
 E--------------5-6-5-0-3-5-3-0-0-0--
                                         Play this many.many times

 then:

 G------------------
 D------------------
 A--7-7-------------
 E------0-0-0-0-----
  a few times and end with multiple E notes at the 7th fret on the 3rd string.
