Exo-Politics - Muse
(Album: Black Holes and Revelations, 2006)
Transcribed: Electric Guitar (Matt Bellamy)
Tuning: Standard (EADGBe)
Tabbed by: Paul Lambeth

The bends during the verses and intro of this song can also be played as slides or just
notes - it's up to you. I prefer playing the bends, but choose whatever feels best. The
are below - not in exactly the right place but close enough so you should be able to 
where each note is played. I wanted to get this completely right - I've seen masses of
for this slightly wrong in some places.

Thanks. Here it is!
