so ive recently gotten deeply into muse, and matt bellamy has basically replaced my god (i didnt have one but lets go with it). And now im inspired to write things like he does, and i was wondering what techniques does he use? i know the tremelo picking, but what else?? what scales does he like to use and what chords??


thanks in advance

matt's too good for just one scale. And he uses everychord. He's god. what doesn't he do?


if you find out anything tell me... id love to know too

hahaha yes, i noticed he likes his tremelo picking, he does the solo to 'time is running out' and most of 'knights of cydonia' but besides that i cant figure it out, he just makes the simplest things sound great

Digitech Whammy, NEW BORN LIVE SOLO!: Tapping tremol picking, Listen to Invincible for tapping with the Whammy. And lets say that he uses no blues scales (E7) but he uses blues chords, but not so often. In the early years he just used tremol picking and a whammy: Sunburn, Showbizz, New Born (that`s not really the early years but whatever)

You mean Fsharp Harmonic minor?
Far as I can see (I'm no expert BTW) but Bellamy uses the 7 Major scale modes most of the time with the occasional Harmonic minor thrown in.
