Notes: Get a bassist!

Important:

For the solo bit, I have tabulated two versions, the
first is less of a stretch, but is awkward to play on
an acoustic guitar. I always use the second version
but it becomes a little awkward at the final bit due
to the fact that youre stretching from 7->12, but I
have rather large hands so it's not a problem. Use
whatever feels comfortable! Take a look at Paul
Gilbert's hands, they're huge!

Also, the second version is slightly easier to pick
because you don't have to skip across any other
strings, just try, see what you like.

Bends & Slides: For this, using the 'b' for the bend
was making it pretty messy, so '/' and '\' mean a
bend, and '//' means a slide (of which there is one)
and '~' means trem.


Tuning: Standard

P.S. Muse Rule!

wow, that's a pretty damn good tab. Bit long for my liking it seems a bit too spread out but it's accurate which is what matters.
