Muse - Apocalypse Please
Album – Absolution
Tuning: Dropped C# (or standard if you don`t play the bassnotes)

If you also play the intro then the higher notes will have more... impact, shall I say it.

Intro:
e |-----------------|
B |-----------------|
G |-----------------|
D |-----------------|
A |-4-4---4---4---4-| repeat 12 times or something.
C#|-0-0---0---0---0-|

On the CD you can hear at the end of “Intro” someone saying something. (..., it`s time)

And then:

Chorus/Break/Interlude/arpeggio section with the high vocals:

The arpeggio`s were too hard so I had to change it. Twice as fast as verse (Declare this 
emergency, it`s time we saw...)

Do everything a whole bar, the upper and bottom note must be picked 4 times.

You can also pick the notes a string higher, if you want
that version send me a message.

Outro/solo (my best attempt) Major key is F#m/C#m if you want to improvise.

I've been looking through tabs for this song, trying to see if it's possible to find one that has the change in pitch
effect like the song. Great work on the tab, the drop C# tuning really does it.

Just a quick remark. I'm no expert on chord names, but isn't the Eaug an A chord? I'm just trying to work it out on piano, so I noticed that. The chord's fine, just I think the name's wrong.

Yeah, you`re right. Eaug is with a C, thanks, I`ll correct it soon.
