Bubblegum;541302 said: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.

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.
MusePT;541556 said: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!
MusePT;540429 said:OMG... just came here after posting the new sig earlier and PUM 6 new pages!!! You guys are monsters!!!!
Coldplayer;541771 said:This thread is really a monster, growing so fast, unbelievable. I mean, Muse is good, but I've never expected them to get such a fast growing thread. Why isn't the Radiohead thread so big? (Probably because we already have them in the game)Anyways, @TakeABow: I will watch this video later, since I want to listen to Invincible a few more times before I watch a live performance.
TakeABow;541814 said:Seeing Invincible performed live catapaulted it from a song I liked alot, but by no means my favorite, to my favorite song. That same show was when Muse leapfrogged Radiohead for me to become my favorite band.I'm glad you like BHaR. I can't wait to see where they go next. Rumor has it they considered hiring a orchestra, and they are planning to make thier music even more electronic. Whatever they are coming up with, it will be self-produced, and released late this year or early next year.
Coldplayer;541844 said:Yeah, let's wait and see.BH&R would actually be perfect as full album DLC, I would love it.
TakeABow;541850 said:There are a few small issues with a couple songs. But yeah, for the most part it would work.
Coldplayer;541854 said:Hey, slow down, I wasn't even finished editing my post. (No wonder this thread is so long )
Bonez;542164 said:Getting on the computer on the weekends is next to impossible for me...coming on here and reading 20 new pages since Friday totally made up for the crappy weekend I had. This thread is glorious! Matt would be so proud of your egg-salad conspiracy theory. That was just hysterical.It's awesome to see how many people are looking into guitars now because of Muse! Plug-in Baby is insane amounts of fun to play. I've taken on the huge responsibility of trying to learn all of their songs; there have been talks of a cover band amongst myself, my friend and my brother. We'll see...either way it would be sweet to just sit down and play any Muse song my heart desires. They can get rather complicated though.For those of you looking at guitars, you should seriously give some thought to Jackson. They are so overlooked in the guitar world, but they make fantastic guitars. I was so excited to see them in RB. They can be a little pricey, but you can usually find great deals on them at Guitar Center, and they're worth every penny. My guitar's list price was $800, I got it for $500. Most of them come with EMG-HZ pickups as standard equipment, and as far as pickups go, they're among the best. Compared to my Strat, my Jackson's tone is just beautiful. Just avoid the Floyd Rose locking tremolo's if you can...I have one, and my guitar has been out of commission for a couple years now because it's so messed up and I haven't had time to take it to be fixed. That's the only negative thing I've come across with it though.Sorry for the guitar novel...they just make me excited.
TakeABow;542659 said:I am looking into getting an Epiphone Les Paul, I can get one with list price of 1100 for about 550. My guitar-playing friends recommend them highly. Any input on the sort of amp I should get?
FatWilma;542811 said:in my experience with (real) Les Pauls, Marshall amps sound great with them. however, i wouldn't recommend getting a tube amp, those are a b*tch for maintanence, but i'm lazy. i had a Crate tube amp, and it sounded awesome, but replacing tubes sucks. Marshall makes great solid state amps. if i had a Les Paul, thats what i would get.i now have a lil Crate 10" solid state amp for my Strat and it sounds good for as cheap as it was. if all u want is a small, cheap amp, i would recommend that.btw, finally watched HAARP. what can i say that hasn't already been said, its live Muse. of course it rocks. i wish they would have jammed some more songs out, those were my favorite parts, when they would extend a solo or add lil riffs at then end. i forget what song it was, but i swear he played almost the exact solo from Bulls On Parade.

FatWilma;542839 said:yeah, i'm pretty sure its the end of Stockholm Syndrome. its just a lil part, he plays almost the exact notes from the Bulls On Parade solo (probably unintentional, i just noticed it immediately).
vicious136;542887 said:That is awesome. I totally didn't notice that, now I'll have to go back and watch it again! I doubt it was unintentional. Matt's got a pretty vast knowledge of all things musical and he's got the talent to replicate pretty much whatever he wants so I wouldn't be a bit surprised if he threw that in just for "S's & G's" just like he did with the note progression from Close Encounters.
Bonez;542964 said:Actually, if you look at the credits in the booklet, they credit several RATM songs (I'm forgetting the others at the moment), as well as Close Encounters of the Third Kind.TakeABow...Les Pauls are great! My brother has an Epi, and he loves it. As far as amps go, no one can touch Marshall. Unfortunately, they're expensive, and most take up a ton of room. The only ones I've ever played on were at Guitar Center, and that was just wishful thinking. I have a Crate MX15R...it's been discontinued for a few years now (not surprising since I bought it six years ago), but for a small amp it has fantastic sound. I'm sure they've replaced it with another 15 watt that's just as good. I'm currently lusting for this one. I was messing around with it the last time I was at GC, and it was wonderful. If you're looking for something bigger than a 15w, check that bad boy out. It's even got a built in tuner, which is just genius. Crate's are really good at mimicking the tube amp sound for a solid-state company. I highly recommend them if you can't get a Marshall.
S1ckH4nds;543190 said:Hrm. Honestly, I hadn't really heard of Muse prior to GHIII. But since I found myself playing it yesterday, and revisiting Knights Of Cydonia, I decided to finally give their full length a shot. So after downloading Black Holes & Revelations based on that track alone, I was really surprised to hear such a diverse album; I don't think a single track on there sounds like any of the others. I was really surprised at the near synth-poppy opener. But all in all, it's a fascinating release, and I'd love to see it made available as DLC for RB.

Coldplayer;543476 said:I have a black Epiphone DOT. It looks like this (but with more buttons):Happy with it, so far. I love this Robert Smith style.
