Artist: Muse
Album: Absolution

This is as close as I got to perfect, I have the guitar instrumental of
this song, and I'm pretty sure that this is as good as it gets.. hope you
agree!

Edit - You think this looks different to last time you looked at this tab?
       Yeah - I formatted it quite a bit (and made a few corrections).

Intro - scratch your plectrum up the E string as below

e|-------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------------|
G|-------------------------------------------|
D|-------------------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------------------|
E|--1//////3//////////6/////////9/////////22-|

You should roughly be this far down the neck for each bar (4 bars long)

Riff - play twice

e|---------------------------------|---------------------------------|

Verse 1 - play this at the end                          time round, and mute after
                                                        half a second.

Great TAB but just a small but very significant correction. This applies to the whole of the Bass tab as well as Matt's guitar line for Verse 2. At the start of the run on the A string after the run on the D string there is only 1 open A string note (I told you it was a small deal!). However, if you leave it in it throws out the whole timing. You have to hit that fret 10 note on the second beat.
Hope this helps anyone who was struggling with that extra note!

Verse 2 - play this twice... (first time round, the first 4 notes are
replaced be the chord above, chord lasts for the 4 notes)
