Muse – hysteria

This is as close as I got to perfect, I have the guitar instrumental of
this song, and Im pretty sure that this is as good as it gets, hope you
agree. I am aware about the first part of the solo is just like many other
tabs, that’s because its right, simple as.

Intro - scratch your plectrum up the E string as below

e|------------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------------------|
G|------------------------------------------|
D|------------------------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------|
E|--1//////3//////////6/////////9/////////22|

You should be this far down the neck for each quarter of the time you do this

Riff - play twice

FULL Solo - first section was easy to tab, but after that, wasnt so easy
(the main reason I made this was to tab out the full solo which the others
dont have, and various other mistakes in the other tablatures)

Section 1 -

Section 2 - some delay effect of some sort

G|------12----------------------------12----------------------------14---------|

B|-12------------------------------14------------------------14------------|
D|-----12-----------------------------15------------------------14---------|
A|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|

You can hear this very faintly, and hard to make out, between end of section 2 and 
of section 3

e|-------------------|
B|-11h13h14h15p13p10-|
G|-------------------|
D|-------------------|
A|-------------------|
E|-------------------|

Section 3 - this plays when the chorus plays (including when matt sings and
plays the chords) so you must listen carefully for this part

e|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-6b------------6--5--3/5-5------------4--4--6-6b-----------9--7-6bu-----|
G|-----5----------------------5--------------------6----------------------|
D|--------7----------------------5--------------------7-------------------|

e|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-----------6bu-5-6------------6--4-----4------------4--4--6--7----------|
G|-7------------------6---------------6-----4---------------------6-------|
D|----7------------------6---------------------4---------------------7----|
A|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------------------------|

e|------------------------| guitar 2 or whatever plays the chorus which matt plays
B|---9--7--6bu------------| on top of this (section 3) (this chorus is exactly the
G|--------------7---------| same as chorus 2) I know they havent got 2 guitars, so
D|-----------------7------| don’t bother pointing that out.
A|------------------------|
E|------------------------|

Ending - do this 5 times...

e|------------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------------------|
G|------------------------------------------|
D|-Play this zero the first time round-only-|
A|-v----------------------------------------|
E|-0-0-10-0-10-12-0-10-0-10-9-0-9-8-0-8-0-7-|

...then this once

e|------------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------------------|
G|------------------------------------------|
D|------------------------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------|
E|-0-10-0-10-12-0-10-0-10-9-0-9-8-0-8-0-7\0-|

my first:D). - Muse_freek

Great TAB but just a small but very significant correction. This applies to the whole of the Bass tab as well as Matt's guitar line for Verse 2. At the start of the run on the A string after the run on the D string there is only 1 open A string note (I told you it was a small deal!). However, if you leave it in it throws out the whole timing. You have to hit that fret 10 note on the second beat.
Hope this helps anyone who was struggling with that extra note!

Verse 2 - play this twice... (first time round, the first 4 notes are
replaced be the chord above, chord lasts for the 4 notes)
