                   Knights of Cydonia Live on Abbey Road- Muse
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Kevin
Email: kevin.scruz@yahoo.com

I love this song and this is my favorite live version of the song.  This is from when 
played on the show Live on Abbey Road.  It has some differences from the other tabs so I 
to make my own.  

Tuning: Standard EADGBe
       Use distortion with some delay to get the sound for this song

  Move the whammy bar back and forth

       These are all harmonics.
       Use the whammy bar on the last 2 notes.
       Start by moving it kinda fast then slow down.
