  • Muse is an English, original band of Alternative Rock of Teignmouth, Devon. It is composed by Matthew Bellamy (composer, voice, guitar, keyboard and piano); Dominic Howard (Drum and percussion). And Christopher Wolstenholme (Bass electrical, keyboards and choirs). After the launch of his fourth album, Morgan Nicholls is present at the band during the concerts, taking charge of keyboards, samples and of some choirs. His music possesses influence of classic composers, specially, those of the romantic age, such as Sergéi Rajmáninov. The band is famous for his energetic live actions and the eccentric interests of the leader Bellamy in the global conspiracy, extraterrestrial life, theology and the Apocalypse.

    The members of Muse got out of a jam themselves in different bands during his stay in Teignmouth Community College and Coombeshead College at the beginning of 1990. Muse's formation began when Bellamy audition to be the guitarist of the band of Dominic Howard. They asked Chris Wolstenholme, who was touching the battery in this moment, which it was learning to touch under for the band. Wolstenholme agreed and took lessons.

    On March 17, 2008 H.A.A.R.P was edited in DVD and CD, containing the live action in Wembley's stadium of June 16 and 17, 2007, images, and showing a great quantity of effects as for lights and his great rudeness for on the scene.

    In 2008 the band decided to do his first tour along Latin America, in which there was included Chile, Mexico, Colombia, Argentina and Brazil, with a total success.
    In 2009, as they published in his official web, they are preparing a new album that will be ready for September that will come accompanied on a European tour in autumn.

    This lesson is based on the brilliant and successful song “Stockholm Syndrome”.
    You’ll work aspects like rhythm, scale uses, and different techniques as alternate picking, slides and vibrato.


    The tuning is: using dropped D tuning:

    1) E 4) D
    2) B 5) A
