  1. Like and Subscribed. Love you man. Your a hero for busting out Knights of Cydonia for us, ok ok I really like this song. This has got to catch a rocker chicks attention.

  2. Roses are red
    Violets are blue
    I came for the verse
    And so did you

  3. This song is one of my favourite songs and muse is my favourite band. It's really great for me to have a teacher who loves muse and has a cat that loves it too, in fact I have a cat which loves muse. So this lesson is just brilliant .You know Eric, I sometimes dream playing my favorite songs under your teaching. And i feel so happy and hyped when i think about it. Hope you will do more muse 🙂

  4. Why don't you just tell us the strumming pattern cause a lot of people obviously have trouble learning it just by watching or they can't find it on your website.

  5. amazing, thnks!

  6. How do you play the strum pattern? I remembered all pf the chords but can't figure out the pattern. Thanks for the awesome video though!

  9. This is an amazing song, and an amazing tutorial. I can't do the strumming pattern yet, like others who have commented , but I'll keep trying. Does it have a name? thank you for an awesome cover of one of my favorites! x

  10. Can you tell me the strumming pattern. It is hard for me please 🙂

  11. can you leave a link for the sheet music for it

  12. No chorus??

  13. I would love it if in the future, you played the whole song, then went through how to do it. Otherwise, great job! This is the only acoustic cover on youtube of this song.

  14. if you can't play the e flat then play a bmaj on the 6th threat 🙂

  15. I am having trouble with the strumming

  16. thats one happy cat 🙂

  17. This is the first time I've heard this song and it reminds me of the Atom Heart Mother main theme chord progression a bit.

  18. Hi Sage !! Very good lessons on your channel !! Would you give a lesson on how you record your videos ??  Tkx

  19. This is an awesome breakdown of this song.  Most of us just hear the cool vibrato guitar and staccato vocals, but these base chords really show where the song came from and how great of a songwriter Matthew Bellamy is. Well Done!
