Well it's been properly released! I think it might actually be one of the trickier songs to date! Mind you, Explorers isn't easy either!

The chorus to mercy sounds like he's playing power chords with the 5th below as the lowest note. Mike Einziger from Incubus used to do this a bunch (glass and idiot box for example), I've always loved the sound of it, and it sounds like Matt is doing it in Mercy. This is what I'm talking about.

 

G------5------------------9---------7-

D------5---------5-------9---------7-

A------3---------5-------7---------5-

E------3---------3-------7---------5-

 

Either that or it's Chris that's playing the 5th's as his notes which is entirely possible (except the G).

anyone know what chord shapes Matt's playing during the Reapers verses?

 

A lot of people have tabbed it as

 

e---------------------

B--6-----8----6----8

G--7-----7----5----7

D--7-----8----7----8

A---------------------

D---------------------

 

But from the KROQ video it looks like he's playing

 

E

B---6------8----10-------8

G---7------7----10-------7

D---7------7-----7--------8 with a different chord on the first beat of the Gm bar

A-----------------7----------

D

Can't for the life of me figure out what Matt is playing on mercy in the jools live video for the last two chords of the pre chorus

This is the intro and riff/verse. My ear isn't good enough to do the rest really.

Anyone got a decent tab for the part in The Handler after the tappy bit? I imagine we'll have to wait until a live vid comes out as it's a bit tricky to see in the lyric vid

After listening with proper headphones (finally), I think there's two guitars during that part

Since most of the online tabs are inaccurate and people are asking, here's an accurate The Handler tab I made.

http://www.mediafire.com/download/3nvcjad5udmhqzc/Muse_-_The_Handler.gpx

Guitar 1 after the solo lists the chords he plays live, while the two others are the octaves played on two separate guitar tracks. The rest of the tab is accurate to the mp3. He plays random open notes here and there on the the main riff on the mp3 and I've made note of those too rather then copy and pasting the main riff throughout for people who care to be really accurate. Other then that enjoy I guess.

Not sure if this has been mentioned before but the new album is now available from Faber Music, either as a book for the whole album or individual sheet music .

 

For the individual downloads Psycho is guitar tab or piano, the rest is arranged for piano

Looks about right to me :)

 

Writing it down an octave higher makes it easier to read though ;)

Does anyone have sheet music of the piano sections to Darkshines, I mean the actual piano sections. I cant find them anywhere online and every single piano tutorial/cover doesnt even show the person playing the actual piano part i.e. the well known drop just as the chorus comes in.

I have a guitar pro file with the music on it, but I'm 100% sure its not official
