I'm not very optimistic about getting an answer to this, but does anyone know the scale Matt Bellamy plays at the end of Stockholm Syndrome during the outro/improv. part. It's the improv. section at around 4:50 if anyone has the cd.

I'm pretty sure that it's some scale he's tapping but I can't figure it out cause I'm not that good. If someone knows or has found a tab of its correctness I would greatly appreciate it.

at first it sounds like some phrygian mode licks, but then he just does some blues stuff after that.

I'm an avid Muse fan but somehow i can't imagine that Matt is actually knows any scale. Chances are he does but i ust can't imagine that.

i think its not really a scale he follows i mean i think a majority of muse fans would agree that bellamy is a genius musician (watch him play piano and look me in the eyes and tell me hes not the reincarnation of beethovan) but hes not one to follow everything rigidly hence y they are a very original band... im sure theres a method to the madness but its probably more just an improv from a musician standpoint of what sounds cool rather than a scale... just my opinion...

He's a classicaly trained pianist, and Plug in Baby as well as a solo in what I think was
Take a Bow were both in the Harmonic Minor, and used well, which donates knowing the scale.

Edit: It could be Phrygian #3, but don't put money on it.
The UG Awards exist only to instill me with existential doubt.


For me, the 60's ended that day in 1978...

Willies. Fuck the lick and fuck you too.

Thanks for the help everyone I'll have to play around with it and try to find out. I agree that it's probably more than just one scale but all the help provided was great.

**And on the notion that Muse has sold out, I would disagree. I think that once a band gets so many fans, and those fans are the kind of fans that they shouldn't be, people begin to believe that the band has sold out. I remember liking many bands and then douchebags that I know what begin to listen to them and I lost respect for the band. But good music is good music. And here in the states, not many people even know about Muse so it may just be my perspective.
