Isolated System

I love this instrumental piece by Muse. It worked perfectly as the theme song for Brad Pitt’s World War Z in 2013. That was a great movie and it’s unfortunate that Paramount shelved the sequel just last month due to budgetary issues. It was also set to be directed by David Fincher (Fight Club). Darn.

I posted Isolated System 5 years ago, but I wanted to do an improved, updated version

Isolated System is very easy to play. There are no difficult chord shapes, and I would even encourage beginner guitar players to give it a shot.

The guitar tab is only 2 pages and beautifully written. My order of play, in accordance with the guitar tab is: Intro 2x, Pre-verse 4x, Verse 2x, Chorus 2x — Intro 2x, Chorus 4x.

Enjoy, the guitar tab is available below:

Isolated System is played in a trick tuning. You’ll tune your A (5th) string down to G. Your tuning will look like this from Low to High: E G D G B E. *Then place a capo on the 3rd fret.
