I only played it around 3 times before I got bored and never bothered again but it's pretty simple, the first two notes of the sequence are always the same (12-13 on the G) and the third just descends down the high E and B. I'm not really sure what advice to give for it tbh, you just...do it.

I'm assuming that's the bit you're on about anyway.

I wouldn't say The Handler is hard, I learned that solo on my first try, by ear, at normal speed, without mistake, while listening/playing to the song. Maybe I've played that pattern before...I guess it helps that I knew In Your World already lol. It was kind of weird, didn't really have to learn it, just kind of knew it already and could play it like I had been playing it for years.

Also I'm surprised by how many people are saying Reapers (haven't looked at the poll just seeing it in people's comments) It might have a lot to it and is kind of technical but alot of it sounds like stuff that has been done before all thrown together, and overall execution in the way it actually sounds it does absolutely nothing for me. It has zero feeling. There are simple solos like the one in SFA that are worlds better imo for this reason. And Defector absolutely crushes it for a recent Muse guitar solo.

I didn't say The Handler or any other Muse solo was hard (Invincible's the only slightly tricky one imo), I just said it was harder than Madness. I was also able to work it out straight away and I'm a pretty average guitarist.

Yeah I still wouldn't say its harder than Madness. I never properly learned Madness because one of the stretches threw me off and I didn't like the song enough to care to learn it.

And yeah I wouldn't say I'm very good at guitar either. Just decent.

The stretches really aren't bad at all imo. The only reason I'd say TH is harder than Madness is 'cause it requires some slight form of concentration for me to make sure I'm getting the right notes and rhythm (it's easy to start going too fast), whereas I don't even have to think about Madness.

In fact, thinking about it, Madness is probably one of their easiest solos imo, along with Fury, Sober, SFA and TSP.

you just have to work out easier ways to position your hand, i struggled with it at first but it became natural after 3 or 4 play throughs

but yeah like everyone's saying none of muse's solos are overly tricky

Actually not blown away by the solos on TDS and Blockades. They’re good, but standard fare for Muse. BITM and Propoganda I’m in love with, but they won’t be knocking Reapers off of my top spot.

Darkshines has a brilliant solo. I can imagine being on a tropical beach with that playing in the background.

Showbiz is my favorite song, but my favorite guitar parts are Unnatural selection ones.
