the synth bit!  tap left and right hand, if you can tap you should be able to figure
it out soon.  not sure about positions, but notes are right.

Amazing tab man, 5 stars all the way. The only thing I'd say is that the big riff at the end would be easier to play if it was like this:

G||---------------------------------------------------|
D||--------------------------------------------5------|
A||--5h7-7-7---7-5h7-7-7---7-5h7-7-7---7-5h7-7---7-5--|
E||---------------------------------------------------|

G||---------------------------------------------------|
D||---------------------------------------------------|
A||--5-----------5-----------5-----------5-----5-7-7--|
E||----7-7-7---7---7-7-7---7---7-7-7---7---7-7--------|

G||---------------------------------------------------|
D||---------------------------------------------------|
A||--7-0-0-0---0-7-0-0-0---0-7-0-0-0---0-7-0-0-2------|
E||----------------------------------------------5-3--|

G||---------------------------------------------------|
D||---------------------------------------------------|
A||---------------------------------------------------|
E||--3-0-0-0---0-3-0-0-0---0-3-0-0-0---0-3-0-0-5h7-7--|

I could be wrong, I've never seen Chris from Muse play it but that's how I'd play it.

Hey, great tab. For the synth bit, this is the easiest way i have found to play it - I also changed a position of one of the notes:

L2 L1 L2 R1 L2 R1 R2 R1 R2 L3
G||---------------------------------7------|
D||-----------------------9------9---------|
A||--5-----5--9---5---9------9-------------|
E||-----7----------------------------------|

This pattern should apply to most of the synth parts
