--:Hey ho, this is my first tab on the web, I've tabbed stuff before but always found
other people have already beaten me to it - but this one is speshal :)  Special because I
no-one has done a decent tab for it...and it took me ages to work it out properly:--

This should be spot on - there's months of playing it been put into it -besides the
amounts, I'm doing this by memory-  and I'm a massive Muse fan so I know Chris prefers
bass up on 12 on A+E rather than low down on D+G  lol

Song: Futurism
Band: Muse

Tuning: EADG (You may find this easier to play in drop D, for this you will have to
up all the notes I've written for E by 2 frets.  Easier on the hand :p)  Usually you can
which strings they're on by the tone of the notes, bass distortion is so much better on 
heavy strings, especially high up

Fantastic tab, but I think it sounds a little better if you play it like this:

G||-------12-------------------------------------|---------------------|
D||-------------12----11-12--------12-------11---|----10---------------|
A||-10-10----10----------------------------------|-------10-12-13-12-10|
E||----------------10--------10-10---10-9-9----9-|8-8------------------|

Still the exact same . . . just sounds a little fuller at the beginning. Great tab!

myself.

Great job, nice way of playing it and I think (with the above correction it sounds spot on. I think I prefer the way its shown in version 1 but thats just me - I don't really like big jumps (I mean look at New Born thats hell to play).

Nevertheless well done I think I may play around with working at both systems.

I want to post or [tab]
