Band: Muse
Song: Apocalypse Please
Album: Absolution
Tabbed by: Dave Sheehan (daveys14@hotmail.com)

Notes:

-> Let all verse / bridge / outro notes ring. The song is laid out below exactly as it's played.

-> The tabs already on this site aren't perfect. I tabbed this out a couple of years ago 
never submitted it. I watched the Pinkpop '04 video of this song and Chris plays Verse 
as below and goes up high on verse 2, unlike what the other tabs say.

-> In 'Verse 2' Chris goes up to the 11th and 12th fret on the A string and not the 6th 
7th fret on the D string. I just put them there to make the tab look neater.


No bass for first eight bars
