Song:     Exo-Politics
Artist:   Muse
Album:    Black Holes And Revelations
Tuning:   Standard    EADGBe


The main riff for this song is really easy to work out, but none of the other tabs have
the chords right for the verse.  There is also a little riff played over the last verse
is really cool and no one has tabbed.  I find this the easiest fingering to play as
 So here is my version of it, any suggestions email crisp_packet@hotmail.com.
