                             Micro Cuts - Muse
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------


Tabbed by: xtinction (me)

Tuning: Drop D (DADGBE)

x  - muted note
/  - slide up
tr - trill
U  - upstroke with plectrum
D  - downstroke with plectrum

Intro - light distortion and delay (delay is more noticeable in live performances)

I've included symbols here and for the verses (symbol key can be found above)
for picking direction as the chords can be quite hard to pick correctly
and at the right speed. Using just downstrokes isn't the fastest or easiest way, and, in my opinion,
neither is just straight alternate picking, feel free to ignore my directions for picking,
but they're here for those who want them
