Hysteria - Muse (Songs Guitar Lesson ST-326) How to play

  • 0:44 - 0:48
    Hey, how're you doin? Justin here. In this lesson today,
  • 0:48 - 0:51
    we're checking out "Hysteria" by Muse.
  • 0:51 - 0:54
    That little riff that I just played there
    was actually the bass riff,
  • 0:54 - 0:56
    it's not really the guitar riff.
  • 0:56 - 0:57
    But I'm going to show it to you anyway because
  • 0:57 - 1:00
    it sounds pretty cool.
    So we're going to check out that little riff first.
  • 1:00 - 1:03
    Then we're going to check out the actual kind of main
  • 1:03 - 1:05
    melody part that he plays,
    check out the chords in the chorus
  • 1:05 - 1:07
    and I'll show you the solo as well, for good measure.
  • 1:07 - 1:11
    Because it's a pretty funky little solo.
    So, without any further ado,
  • 1:11 - 1:14
    let's get stuck in and check out that first riff.
  • 1:14 - 1:28
    . . .
  • 1:28 - 1:30
    Okay, nice and slowly, let's check it out.
  • 1:30 - 1:40
    . . .
  • 1:40 - 1:42
    There, this is obviously the tenth fret
  • 1:42 - 1:45
    . . .
  • 1:45 - 1:46
    Ten to twelve
  • 1:46 - 1:47
    . . .
  • 1:47 - 1:47
    Open again
  • 1:47 - 1:48
    . . .
  • 1:48 - 1:49
    Ten
  • 1:49 - 1:49
    . . .
  • 1:49 - 1:50
    Open
  • 1:50 - 1:51
    . . .
  • 1:51 - 1:52
    Seven
  • 1:52 - 1:53
    . . .
  • 1:53 - 1:57
    open again, then we've got this
    eight, eight, seven, five, seven
  • 1:57 - 2:06
    . . .
  • 2:06 - 2:09
    That's the first bar.
    Definitely worth practicing that bit by itself.
  • 2:09 - 2:11
    Then we're onto the next one.
    We've got now an E pedal
  • 2:11 - 2:12
    . . .
  • 2:12 - 2:13
    an open E
  • 2:13 - 2:18
    . . .
  • 2:18 - 2:19
    which is all on the thickest string,
  • 2:19 - 2:22
    except for the last note there,
    the note A up at the twelfth fret
  • 2:22 - 2:27
    . . .
  • 2:27 - 2:28
    This is obviously the tenth here
  • 2:28 - 2:31
    . . .
  • 2:31 - 2:33
    similar sort of feel to the other one
  • 2:33 - 2:40
    . . .
  • 2:40 - 2:42
    the twelfth and fifteenth fret there
  • 2:42 - 2:46
    . . .
  • 2:46 - 2:48
    Now we're up to the D string
  • 2:48 - 3:09
    . . .
  • 3:09 - 3:12
    Sometimes I'm changing what finger I play that note with,
  • 3:12 - 3:15
    it doesn't really matter.
    And then we finish the same as we start.
  • 3:15 - 3:19
    . . .
  • 3:19 - 3:21
    Except the first note of that's missing actually.
  • 3:21 - 3:27
    . . .
  • 3:27 - 3:28
    So we're having this
  • 3:28 - 3:32
    . . .
  • 3:32 - 3:35
    It's kind of this here is the first beat of the next bar
  • 3:35 - 3:37
    . . .
  • 3:37 - 3:39
    because it's an octave above the A anyway.
  • 3:39 - 3:50
    . . .
  • 3:50 - 3:53
    When it comes to the main guitar riff,
    it's really important that you make sure
  • 3:53 - 3:55
    that you get your muting good with both hands.
  • 3:55 - 3:57
    First of all, when you're playing the octave
  • 3:57 - 3:58
    . . .
  • 3:58 - 4:01
    you should be able to strum all of the notes, but all of
  • 4:01 - 4:05
    the notes are muted, except the two that you want.
  • 4:05 - 4:07
    . . .
  • 4:07 - 4:10
    And you're going to use that
    down, down, up, down, down, up pattern.
  • 4:10 - 4:12
    . . .
  • 4:12 - 4:15
    Then mute all of the strings
    with the outside of your palm here,
  • 4:15 - 4:18
    sists on the strings to keep them all quiet
  • 4:18 - 4:19
    . . .
  • 4:19 - 4:22
    and then you're going to do a little bend here
    at the twelfth fret
  • 4:22 - 4:24
    . . .
  • 4:24 - 4:26
    to the tenth fret. So it's semitone bend
  • 4:26 - 4:29
    . . .
  • 4:29 - 4:30
    and down to the tenth fret.
  • 4:30 - 4:33
    Now, that pattern just moves down now, so twelve
  • 4:33 - 4:38
    . . .
  • 4:38 - 4:40
    that's first finger on the eleventh fret
  • 4:40 - 4:41
    . . .
  • 4:41 - 4:43
    first finger on the eighth fret
  • 4:43 - 4:49
    . . .
  • 4:49 - 4:52
    last time, the bend is going up and down a couple of times.
  • 4:52 - 4:54
    . . .
  • 4:54 - 4:55
    Same again
  • 4:55 - 5:11
    . . .
  • 5:11 - 5:13
    Then he's just hitting an open A string
  • 5:13 - 5:14
    . . .
  • 5:14 - 5:16
    and the seventh fret of the fourth string
  • 5:16 - 5:17
    . . .
  • 5:17 - 5:20
    octaves of the eighth. Then, the guitar is quiet.
  • 5:20 - 5:22
    All of the way through the verse, comes in with
  • 5:22 - 5:24
    . . .
  • 5:24 - 5:25
    big muted hits.
  • 5:25 - 5:27
    So grabbing the whole fingerboard with your fingers
  • 5:27 - 5:29
    . . .
  • 5:29 - 5:30
    and hitting
  • 5:30 - 5:33
    . . .
  • 5:33 - 5:37
    then we're into the chorus.
    Now, the chorus, the chords are power chords.
  • 5:37 - 5:38
    C
  • 5:38 - 5:39
    . . .
  • 5:39 - 5:40
    G
  • 5:40 - 5:42
    . . .
  • 5:42 - 5:43
    D
  • 5:43 - 5:45
    . . .
  • 5:45 - 5:46
    and A
  • 5:46 - 5:59
    . . .
  • 5:59 - 6:02
    And it's kind of strummed unusually for power chords
  • 6:02 - 6:05
    if you just check out the strumming hand now
    for a second, here it is
  • 6:05 - 6:18
    . . .
  • 6:18 - 6:21
    Now, I do a little trick here as well, which you might like,
  • 6:21 - 6:23
    where I'm playing a C chord.
    Now this is, and I don't think what
  • 6:23 - 6:26
    Matt Bellamy is playing on the record but it sounds pretty,
  • 6:26 - 6:28
    sounds like it. I think maybe it's a bass or a synthesiser
  • 6:28 - 6:30
    or something, but I go
  • 6:30 - 6:33
    . . .
  • 6:33 - 6:34
    I put a little
  • 6:34 - 6:38
    . . .
  • 6:38 - 6:39
    a bend in from the second fret
  • 6:39 - 6:41
    . . .
  • 6:41 - 6:42
    and then up to the third
  • 6:42 - 7:04
    . . .
  • 7:04 - 7:07
    And finishing with a little riff, same as the bass one
  • 7:07 - 7:12
    . . .
  • 7:12 - 7:15
    which is of course the one with the E pedal
    the we learned already.
  • 7:15 - 7:22
    . . .
  • 7:22 - 7:24
    And then it's back into that octaves thing.
  • 7:24 - 7:27
    Then the guitar goes quiet, then it plays a chorus.
    Then it plays the little riff again and then,
  • 7:27 - 7:30
    we're into the solo!
  • 7:30 - 7:33
    I'm going to do the solo in two halves.
    The first half looks like this:
  • 7:33 - 7:46
    . . .
  • 7:46 - 7:50
    Okay, let's go through that now, just really nice and slowly.
  • 7:50 - 7:51
    Got here fourteen and twelve
  • 7:51 - 8:14
    . . .
  • 8:14 - 8:18
    Picking is alternate throughout.
    I'm not going to go through all of the frets with you.
  • 8:18 - 8:19
    I'm sure there's plenty of tabs around for this
  • 8:19 - 8:21
    and you can probably see it anyway.
  • 8:21 - 8:23
    That's, we've got this nice little run
  • 8:23 - 8:28
    . . .
  • 8:28 - 8:30
    Second part of the solo is based on arpeggio's.
  • 8:30 - 8:53
    . . .
  • 8:53 - 8:56
    Hope you enjoyed the look at Hysteria by Muse.
  • 8:56 - 8:59
    Fantastic rock tune and if you're playing in a band
    or getting a band together,
  • 8:59 - 9:01
    it's a really, really great fun one to play.
  • 9:01 - 9:05
    Your bass player will love you for it.
    If you can play, and he'll hate you for it
  • 9:05 - 9:08
    if you can't. Matt Bellamy's guitar playing is most awesome
  • 9:08 - 9:11
    and in this tune, there's loads
    and loads of cool things to learn.
  • 9:11 - 9:14
    I hope I didn't go too fast through the solo.
  • 9:14 - 9:16
    There's going to be plenty of tabs around. If not, just make
  • 9:16 - 9:19
    your own tab really slowly by watching the video.
  • 9:19 - 9:23
    It's not too difficult. Make sure that you get your alternate
  • 9:23 - 9:26
    picking all of the way through this tune.
    All of those fast things are all alternate.
  • 9:26 - 9:30
    Continuously alternate, you know,
    down-up picking, whatever.
  • 9:30 - 9:34
    Making sure that you pick down on the beat of course.
  • 9:34 - 9:38
    Yeah, lots of good fun. Hope you enjoyed that.
    Back for plenty more guitar lessons soon.
  • 9:38 - 9:40
    If you get stuck on any of this, check out the forum.
  • 9:40 - 9:43
    There'll be plenty of people to help. And I'll put also,
  • 9:43 - 9:46
    some additional notes that'll help you play the tune
    on my website.
  • 9:46 - 9:49
    Take care of yourselves and I'll see you some time
    real soon. Bye bye!

In this guitar lesson we check out Hysteria by Muse. I show you the main riff (usually played on bass) the main guitar riffs and a quick look at the solo.
