    This Agile has quickly become my main gigging axe now just because I'm not worried about her getting damaged (and she sounds and plays pretty damn nice too)! We got a little gig coming up soon so she was brought up with me to college this week while I get all my gear ready for the show!

    In the meantime, I decided to try and go learn something a normally wouldn't really play/listen to; Rage Against The Machine. Now I've know for a while now the Tom Morrello is a pretty cool dude and a killer guitarist as well, but I've never really given this band more than a few passing glances and a couple of listen toos on the radio. However, this song really caught my ear, particularly that groovy lead guitar part! So I learned up this song in about a half hour and threw together this video because, well, it is a really fun song to play! I was able to go crazy on the strings and all that what-not and this kind of song really calls for that kind of play style. It was nice to give myself a break from the way I typically play and just let myself cut loose!

    With that in mind, this is no perfect cover and probably has an ass-load of mistakes in it as well as bum notes, so be forewarned! :D

    Thanks for listening!

    Great playing. Great sounding axe.
    I just don't like RATM.
    I like Tom Morello's playing style, though.
