    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Optimistic by Radiohead comes to mind; I learned it the other day in 15 minutes. Very easy song; the tab I used for it was from ultimate-guitar.com.
    But in an attempt to erase my days in guitar lessons from my memory (My teacher and I didn't get along, but then again, I guess I asked for it by taking lessons in front of my former church.), I've forgotten all of the songs I learned as a novice.

    I've not yet had a run-in with anyone like that at a Guitar Center. Most of the nasty people (both employees and customers) tend to stay away from Guitar Center (at least, the ones I've been to, which includes one in Houston and one in Spring) in favor of little non-chain shops.

    Well, my Ibanez was a starter guitar, and I'm betting the one you're looking at is as well, if it's at a low price. It's very playable, and I've been pleased with mine so far.
    With any new guitar you get, you'll want to take it to a shop that fixes up guitars (the aforementioned little non-chain shops, though sometimes full of elitists, will often do a great job of fixing up guitars.) and get them to tweak it a bit so that it holds a tune better, especially if you're planning to play Muse somewhere down the road, because a bunch of their songs use the higher octave and if your intonation is off, it will sound positively terrible.
    Starting out, and for most of practicing at all, plugging in the guitar for funsies is a waste of electricity and an annoyance to roommates/neighbors/family/etc. But down the road, you'll probably want to get the pickups replaced. Makes miles of difference when you plug into an amp.
    Is Plug in Baby stuck in your head yet?

    That turned out much longer than I expected.
    Back on-topic, sorta.
    Plug in Baby is seriously fun to play on guitar. I'm not very good at the riff, but it's still fun. I'm pretty good at Hysteria, though. I'd probably be better if I did more picking drills, but I can still play it, for the most part (The main bass riff transferred to guitar, too. That's some fun stuff.) I've learned some more stuff, but those are the main ones I practice.
    It was a couple pages back, but whatever.
    My friends all have different opinions about Muse.
    My friend who listens pretty exclusively to Christian pop-rock actually admitted that Hysteria sounded pretty cool.
    My pop-listening friend thinks their sound is too depressing. (Surprise, surprise.)
    And my Radiohead-obsessed friend's very first comment was "OMG, he sounds like Thom Yorke!" (Predictable, though Matt's voice is a little brighter and... often higher.) I don't know what he thought of the rest of the music, though.

    Wow. I bet there were a lot of teen girls with too much eyeliner at the show. And if I were Matt, I wouldn't have covered it with a laugh. Really. That may have been why they agreed to do it, they actually wanted MCR fans to hear good music. Not the crap their favorite band usually makes.
    In the 2nd Wembley Show, MCR where one of the opening acts for Muse... I went in the 1st day so I don't know if they were good or not... I know only the most played songs from radio and tv so I don't have an opinion on their music!

    I promise you are better off having not seen MCR in concert.
