Muse tabs

Micro Cuts bass tab

Artist: Muse
Song: Microcuts
Album: Origin of Symmetry
Tabbed by: Stephen Burr (stephen_8983@hotmail.com)

As nobody has done a tab for this brilliant song yet I thought
I'd better do one
Dropped D tuning

The timing in this song is a bit weird it changes from 2 to 3
beats in a bar and back, quite tricky to tab especially when its
all semi-quavers but its easy to pick up by listening to the song
(I have tried to indicate time changes)(also if anybody has a
better way to tab it or any corrections please make the changes,
just give me some credit for spending my time on it please :))
