'Take A Bow' by Muse

Tabbed by Dave Price-Williams

I've tabbed the synthesiser intro, arranged for guitar. The other tab was good but
had to be adapted in order to be played anywhere near fast enough. I also made
clearer the chord changes, as I just got dizzy looking at the other one!

TIME SIGNATURE: 3/4 or arguably 12/16

BEGINS IN KEY OF D MAJOR:

brilliant, ty very much, i was about to do the same thing actually with the other tab. Why exactly were them tabs made
with such a ridiculous layout, maybe for pianists who use guitar tab to play??!?

good tab cheers!, im gonna also use
the GTP file to try and do the arpeggios, might be a bit messy tho :D

Honestly what is the real difference between 3/4 and 12/16 wouldn't they just end up the same?

I dont know much music theory so im not sure
