          Knights Of Cydonia Live At Rome Olympic Stadium - Muse
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Rory H
E-mail: rdeh10@googlemail.com

Tuning: EADGBe

So this is a tab for the Live Version of Knights of Cydonia that was played at Rome Olympic Stadium.
I have created this tab mainly because the other live versions seem only to cover the Wembley performance
or the Abbey Road session, which are both great, but do have their differences to the Rome version :)

Any improvements/corrections, let me know in the comments or by email!

Sounds like some fuzz may be applied here. Tremelo bar used to create vibrato.
