                             Do We Need This? - Muse
---------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Paul McDermott
Tuning: Eadgbe
There wasn’t any sort of guitar tab for this (which was quite surprising considering its 
out 8 years and its such a good song) so I thought I’d try and tab it myself. I owe a 
of this to the bass tab but I’ve come up with the guitar parts.
The timings a bit tricky so you’ll probably have to listen to the song a bit.
