Tremolo Picking (I don't know how long this goes on for, but these are the notes to 
play up to the change). There is rapid alternation between 17 and 18, with 15 acting as the "base" (yes, BASE - 
not BASS) note; just pick widely, alternating 17 and 18, and it should sound legitimate.

This is very obviously in Eb to those people who gave you bad votes.

Although the chromatic runs are off. The first one is like this

will light the fuse I'll never lose
PM--------------| PM----------| PM-----------------------|
|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
|-10--10--10--10---3-----3--3--3--3---3---------------------------|
|-10--10--10--10---3-----3--3--3--3---3---------------------------|
|-8---8---8---8----1-----1--1--1--1---1--555555556666666677777777-|
|-----------------------------------------------------------------|

And the second run is like this.

And I choose to survive
PM----------| PM-----------------------|

|--3-----3--3--3--3---3---------------------------|
|--1-----1--1--1--1---1--222222223333333344444444-|

Otherwise, this is definitely the more accurate tab.

Hey, thanks for the correction (sorry it took so long!). I've changed a few things in the solo tremolo area towards the end of the song, which should sound more accurate! Regarding the Eb tuning - I think on a six string, it is standard for ease of playing some sections (don't ask me where), but Matt plays most of The 2nd Law songs on a 7 string, so he has the low B to give him the Eb open note, so I've just shifted it down to make the note more authentic.

Otherwise, this is definitely the more accurate tab.
