    What DVD problem did you run into?
    The special edition boxes (limited to 1000 copies in the US) were all region 2 (UK, Japan, France, Germany) coded, so US DVD players couldn't play them. They had the replacement DVD with the correct region code in the mail before I called to ask what was up.

    That's nice of them. I guess they just wanted to spread the HAARP around.

    I wonder how many special edition boxes there were in the UK, since they're a lot more popular there.

    Warner wants Muse fans to be happy, and they pushed HAARP into lots of record stores. I expect that the next time Muse tours over here, it will be thier own tour, with lots of other bands clamoring to open for them.

    *Imagines an Interpol/Muse Tour* If only...

    I bet Helium3 put out plenty of the special HAARP DVD over there. Probably a limited time deal instead of a limited number.

    That tour would be awesome. I would go.

    If that tour happened, I would follow it city to city for a while. Skipping school/work as needed.

    Damn, I would have loved to have gotten this version!!!!Lucky you..

    As for following Muse around from city to city, I have done that with The Cure before....Always a good experience for a band you are passionate about

    That would be really fun to do. Especially if they had different setlists/props onstage for each show, which I bet they do. I'm praying for a big US tour now...

    There would probably be at least a song or two different at each show. Depending on whether they are touring an album(less variety) or just touring(More). Either way, every show is it's own monster, and no two are the same.

    Yeah, HAARP was way different than the one I saw. (I saw the Chicago show back in July '06) Maybe that was because back then, the songs were newer. I mean, BH&R was released only 2 weeks earlier. Oh well.

    I'm gonna assume you meant July 06. Or you have a time machine.

    Actually - I'm gonna assume the latter.

    You gotta respect the flux capacitor. I still believe that thier July '08 show "was" amazing.

    Yeah, it really sucked that Matt wasn't in it, though :eek:

    Oh, I wasn't supposed to say that part yet...

    I love Muse!

    It will be very good to add any song.

    Well, you could always change the future... maybe having a tuna salad sandwich instead of an egg salad sandwich prevents Matt from leaving the band.

    No really, I don't know anyone that's heard Muse and not liked them.

    I'm never eating egg salad again. And that's not because I don't like it. Even though I don't.

    I think some Bellamy-inspired consipiracy regarding egg salads has gotten to you, friend. Probably related to the H.A.A.R.P. experiment in Alaska.

    Nobody else can play and sing Muse besides Matt Bellamy.
  • Alright_ComputerAlright_Computer Butt Neck

    Yes, that H.A.A.R.P. experiment is bad news. I also agree that Muse would be something else entirely without Matt. It's just not possible. No one in rock today can top his solos.

    I challenge anyone in the world to sing with Matt's range, play guitar as well as he can, plus be a skilled pianist.

    Exactly. I suck at singing (No hard vocals for me :(), I'm alright at guitar, and good at the piano. But nowhere close on any level to Bellamy. The least I can do is jam along to his songs, if RB would release them already... and not just Hysteria.

    I'm going to get a guitar shortly, and hopefully after a few months I will be able to play a few Muse riffs. Maybe even a solo or two.

    Good luck with Invincible's solo. But Hysteria isn't so hard (the guitar part anyways). Stockholm Syndrome has a lot of tapping. Plug In Baby is fun. And I could go on and on. It's really fun to play along with the recording and pretend you're as good as Matt Bellamy.

    Assassin would be an amazing choice for Rock Band, and especially the Grand Omega Bosses Edit version of it (the b-side to Knights Of Cydonia).

    However, I think they made a very good choice in Hysteria, as it does have a very good bassline and what I find is the bassist does get stuck with pretty boring lines in a lot of songs.

    Stockholm Syndrome would also be a good choice, especially drum-wise. The opening Plug In Baby guitar riff would be a beauty to play. Time Is Running Out would also be a great song overall. Bliss, my favourite song of Muse, would also work well.

    Easily, though, would no doubt be the perfect Muse song for Rock Band. It's only a b-side though (to Starlight) and thus isn't very well known. Its bassline is amazing though and it's very Bliss-like.
    I know it's far back, but I didn't check this thread for a day and it grew 11 pages. :eek:

    I just have to say thank you! Easily was a song I'd never heard of but after listening to it it's now up there in my Muse favorites. It's amazing how some their b-sides can top many bands' best.

    Alright Computer, what is the easiest guitar centered Muse song to you? I'm going to go looking for some guitars(gonna look for a Epiphone, Yamaha, or a good old Stratocaster) within the next month and I want to download the tabs already so I can learn them before I play. I was thinking The Groove would be the easiest? Anyone else's thoughts? Also anyone have the names of stores that would sell the guitars I'm looking for?

    My girlfriend doesn't like Matt's voice... she doesn't hate it, but she doesn't like it. She says it's "too whiny-sounding". She tolerates my love for them though because she respects the acoustics.

    jdre_124, I've learned to play a couple Muse bits on the real guitar. May I put in my two cents?
    The Groove has some little flips that I would never have gotten when I got my first guitar (then again, I didn't even know who Muse was back then. I was 12, give me a break.). The main riff would probably be pretty easy, but fully learning the song would be rather difficult. Exo-Politics would probably be a better starting point, if you must start with Muse. (As far as Muse songs go, The Groove would be right after, but you'll probably want to throw some non-Muse stuff in your guitar-learning escapades, because most Muse is on the difficult side.)
    Also, Guitar Center has probably got what you're looking for. (And as far as I know, they're all over Texas.) I know the one I go to is generally very helpful; I didn't actually buy my guitar from there, but one of the employees both recommended me my Ibanez Mikro (yeah, I have tiny hands.) and pointed me to the last white one in Texas.

    Always welcome for other people's input. :D Exo-Politics huh? I'll be sure to look up the tabs. Any Muse or none-Muse songs you or anyone else would recommend for the novice guitarist?

    I was wondering, at the Guitar Centers, at the guys there pushy and talk down? I know of some specialty shopes were the guys can be real dicks. Speaking of Ibanez guitars. I was looking them up and I was really into this black one. What would you say on your guitar? I really liked the price point and it's looks but I wan't to make sure I don't get the short end with quality.:cool:

    Thanks ahead, Derek.
