Man Of Mystery 
by Muse (not currently on an album as of 19/06/07; Cover)

Standard tuning

To my knowledge this was played a few times at various gigs around Europe before being
played partway into the Saturday leg of their Wembley headlining gig. This might not
be exactly how it's played LIVE - it's a recording from a CD in a music magazine.

Enjoy. This is as close as I can work out :) This is how I play it, you can work out
how to play it on other strings if you like.

*I've put the times sectioned as it's not strictly sectioned into verse etc.
