                             Hysteria - Muse
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed By : Wilfridberry
e-mail: wilf@toufol.org.uk

Tuning: Standard E A D G


[INTRO]

Often tabbed inaccurately, possibly due to the fact it can be played easily 
up or down the neck, and Chris has a habit of switching places, I will tab it 
down the neck as I find it easier to play. very simple timing-wise, this is 
all in semiquavers (sixteenth notes) - keeping tempo is another matter though 
- watch out for the third bar, it's tricky to keep pace with on the 
recording. Keep your first finger hovering over fret 5, and use the one 
finger per fret rule to minimise awkward wrist movement.

E|--------------------------------------|-------------------------------------|

Which ever tab is easier for you, play it through 4 TIMES.


[FIRST VERSE]

The first verse is 8 measures long, the first 4 are identical to the verse 
riff, the last four are also identical except for the very final measure 
which changes dramatically to signal the chorus coming. I have tabbed it both 
up and down the neck, choose either depending on your earlier choice.

[FIRST CHORUS]

A slightly trickier rhythm repeated through each measure in the chorus; the 
first note is a quaver (eight note), this is followed by five semiquavers 
(16th notes), then another quaver, then seven semiquavers - to make this 
easier I will annotate underneath the tab with a Q for quaver or S for 
semiquaver. Also, there are two hammer ons in each measure. This rhythm 
changes on the eight bar, which plays only semiquavers, then you play the 
four bar intro.

[SECOND CHORUS]

Similar to the first chorus, except instead of jumping into the verse riff 
toward the end it goes into an awesome little breakdown preceding the guitar 
solo. As before, all in semiquavers except the 7th fret A string at the end 
of the eighth measure, which is a crotchet (1/4 note)which i annotated as a C.

[GUITAR SOLO]

The bass that shadows Matt's solo is a combination of the bass parts used in 
the verse and first chorus, which is followed straight after by the third 
chorus.

[THIRD CHORUS]

Almost identical to the second chorus, except the last few bars of instrument 
are different as it is the end of the song. The rhythms are the same as the 
ones we have used before, except the very final bar which is a crotchet then 
a three beat rest.

The "correct" way to play is a great way to lose your fingers. Joking, nice tab :)
