ARTIST - Muse
TITLE - Citizen Erased
ALBUM - Origin Of Symmetry
Tuning: Drop A, 

Matt uses a Manson 7-String to play this song but all you need
to do is tune your e string to a low A. it helps a lot if youve got a very thick 
guage of strings. A .52 is perfect but  a .48 will do aswell.

+this one is just above the 3rd fret

Fiddle around with the harmonics untill you get them right. a Metal Zone is a
Good pedal to use here with its middle frequency's way up high.

hey ive got a correction for this one... in the verse, all the notes for the first part of the verse are played on the 5th string, not the 6th.
