Sing For Absoltuion
By Muse(Matthew Bellamy, Chris Wolstenholme, Dominic Howard)
Bass played by Chris Wolstenholme
Taken from the album Absolution
Tabbed by Laurent

Use standard tuning.
I'm 100% sure of it, listened to the song many times on my bass amp.
I took a look at Chris' playing live and he and Matt seem to play it one fret lower... 
this tab is made accordingly to the studio version. Hope you enjoy, send comments if you want.
