Muse chords for Showbiz

Guitar chords with lyrics

This is a workable guitar tab of Showbiz from the first Muse album, Showbiz.
Transcribed by simon smith, Nottingham UK, and all my own work.

Obviously some of this is played on bass but I use this for doing a
workable one-man version. It shouldn't be difficult to adapt it to your own
needs.
No attempts here at a full transcription, but enough to get you by with a
passable
attempt. Haven't done the solo or ad lib parts: someone else already had a
go at the basic riff around which the solos are based (the melody).

Capo on 2nd fret - standard EADGBE tuning. All fret positions refer to
actual (absolute) positions except open string markers.
Verse - Bass bit (Intro & between vocal lines)

Listen to the track - you can bang this or do it muted - and add the
occasional slide up to the 9th or 10th fret to simulate the bass sound on
the track.
