Muse - Sunburn Acoustic tab

This song uses arpeggios, chords and standard playing.
You can play this with one, or two guitars (they use two), so I've included both guitar parts.
To play the arpeggios, hold the chord shown in and pick the corresponding strings.

The picking pattern is the same all the way through

Final Chorus: Both Guitars

Same as Chorus (Play through Twice)


That's all of it.

If you want a bass playing something you can have it play:

G||-------|-------|--------|-------||
D||--9----|--7----|--10----|--7----||
A||-------|-------|--------|-------||
E||-------|-------|--------|-------||
NOTE: This is the progression from the bass note of the Guitar 2 Verse Riff.

You could also get the bass to improvise upon that and the Chorus would be different.
