Song: The Globalist
Artist: Muse
Album: Drones

The main guitar (G1) has 7 strings (Tuning: AEADGBE)
There is also an rhythm guitar (G2) in the background before the heavy riff (Tuning: EADGBE) 

They will be referred as their bracketed names when both guitars are playing; assume G1 is
playing if there is only one guitar.

Chords:

Timing is used from the album version of this track.


Guitar starts at 0:12

Some chords have the notes picked and some just strum the whole chord, both from the bottom, up.

p = pick and s = strum

G2 (acoustic) joins at 1:29

G2 basically plays the chords from previous part in the rhythm shown below:

e|-x------x-x-x-x------x-x-x-x------x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-|
B|-x------x-x-x-x------x-x-x-x------x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-|
G|-x------x-x-x-x------x-x-x-x------x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-|  x2 (Except the last Am and Dm, which is
D|-x------x-x-x-x------x-x-x-x------x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-|      only once)
A|-x------x-x-x-x------x-x-x-x------x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-|
E|-x------x-x-x-x------x-x-x-x------x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-|

It ends with a single Am strum.


G1 uses a slide while G2 plays for this part (Chords being played at time are shown):

"You were never truly loved..." guitars at 2:52

This is the rhythm for G2 (not acoustic any more, but clean)

e|---------x-----x---------x-x-x-x-|
B|---------x-----x---------x-x-x-x-|
G|-x-------x-----x-x---x---x-x-x-x-| (I can hear some of the chords in the rhythm don't play the
D|-x-------x-----x-x---x---x-x-x-x-|  higher strings - its really hard to work out, but I'm sure of it)
A|-x-------x-----x-x---x---x-x-x-x-|
E|-x-------x-----x-x---x---x-x-x-x-|
   1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +

The Chords G, E and Am are all played 3 times in the above rhythm,
but for the last time, the Am is played as below:

e|---------0-----0---------0-----0-|---------0-----0---------0-----0-|

A|-0---------------2---------------|-3---------------4---------------|

As these chords are being played, G1 is playing more slide guitar (Again, chords being
played at time are shown):

single notes played as shown below:

B|---------1---1-1---------1---1-1-|---------1---1-1---------1---1-1-|

It slides to 22 on high e string when the piano starts, and lasts 3 bars. It sounds
like a harmonic on the same note is played briefly just before the end of the third bar.

There is no more guitar from this point onwards.

Definitely harder to tab than anything else I've done. I'd appreciate a rate, and don't
hesitate to suggest any corrections.
