Sabotage (Rhythm)

Animated Sabotage (Rhythm) tab by Beastie Boys on guitar. So easy you'll be playing in minutes.

This is the main rhythm guitar for Sabotage by the Beastie Boys. It is mostly just one riff that runs throughout the song. However it is varied a little during the intro (not much).

The riff used throughout the song is at fret 4, and best played using the fingers shown here.

Intro - The difference between the intro and the main rhythm riff is just that the intro uses a few more hammer ons. This helps the song build up during the start, until the lead guitar has come in fully. The intro ends with this cool little ascending lick.

Main Riff - The main rhythm riff is constantly repeated. It's short, always repeating itself after this pause (which is done by muting).
