Cochise by Audioslave Song Lessons

As a second tribute song for the great Chris Cornell I thought I'd pick this awesome song by Audioslave which also features some wicked riffing from Tom Morello (he of Rage Against The Machine fame!).

It got a couple of real fat awesome riffs to sink your teeth in to and if you got some cool out there effects to try you should unleash them in the intro and or the bridge!

I put out a question on twitter asking if anyone knew for sure the correct pronounciation of the song name, and I got an answer from Tom Morello himself :) And it's Cochise as in Niece (the city in France!). I gather it was an Indian cheif too, but need to do some reading of US History books me thinks!

Hope you dig it :)

Watch The Original Video Clip

Watch Tom Morello explain how he does the intro the riffs!

And here's a clip someone just sent me of TM playing the tune and he shows how he plays the intro and also that the fingering for the chorus riff is slightly different to what I teach - right notes and everything, and I find the way he does it way hard, but y'know... it's his tune!
