Man Of Mystery 
by Muse (not currently on an album as of 19/06/07; Cover)

Standard tuning

To my knowledge this was played a few times at various gigs around Europe before being
played partway into the Saturday leg of their Wembley headlining gig. This might not
be exactly how it's played LIVE - it's a recording from a CD in a music magazine.

Enjoy. This is as close as I can work out :) This is how I play it, you can work out
how to play it on other strings if you like.

*I've put the times sectioned as it's not strictly sectioned into verse etc.

The solo continued... Don't play the higher notes in brackets very loudly if at all,
try and make them noticeable in the first bar though at least.

Seems completely different to the original... Right notes and everything, don't get me wrong. But which one would be easier to learn to tab and play?

Spot on, but you could have made if a bit easier to play by using some different strings. Some of the note transitions are a bit hard.
