Author/Artist: Muse
Title: Cave
Album: Showbiz
Transcribed by: Andrew Biles

This is the whole song from the Showbiz book.  At some points there are two
guitars working together on the cd, but this is how he'd have to perform it live
if he were to play it.  The outro is recorded on piano but the tab is written for
guitar just so you can play it.  Quite an easy song once you've mastered all the
muting really so enjoy.

I dont really understand the muting. Will it not sound right if i dont mute and just play the strings im supposed to, or
are tehy just there so i can strum all the strings without playing any opens?

It'll sound a lot better if you mute all the other strings with one finger, so your basically just strumming one note
