Muse – Plug In Baby

muse ukulele tab


This one is a definite finger twister. It’s the way I’ve found that’s easiest to play it, but there are plenty of possibilities so feel free to change it if another way suits you better.version 1, version 2

More guitar riffs for ukulele.

    cbf: It took me aaaaages to get it right. Even without any drinking.

    I can play this bad boy on a stylophone,
    just thought i would throw that into the mix.!

    cbf: Good luck with it. You’re a braver man than I.

    Kenneth: Stylophones are the height of cool. I’ve actually considered setting up a stylophone website.

    allan: Sounds like a good idea.

  13. matt July 23rd, 2009 4:05 pm

    Try playing this on a electric ukulele through a big amp, with a bit of distortion.
    It sounds great!

  14. Woodshed July 24th, 2009 9:36 am

    matt: I’ll give it a go.

  15. royd January 15th, 2010 8:14 pm

    hey, im getting close to finally nailing down this intro with proper timing, but i have no idea what chords to play when im done. any ideas?

  16. Ashm February 16th, 2010 6:49 am

    Sorry to rain on your parade, but bar 5 isn’t right. I’ve been playing this song for ages on guitar, and repeating the 9 on C makes it sound closer to the original.
    Royd: The original has no guitar/uke after that, until just before the chorus. Then it’s a G, I think.

    Sweet man awesome tab, one of the first songs I learned on guitar. Muse is amazing.

  18. Johannes Petrus August 9th, 2010 4:33 pm

    Hey, I love your tabs and I love Muse, so this is about as orgastic as it gets!
    But I have one question, after ‘6’ there’s something with arrows and a 1 and 2 and I don’t really know what that means, can you tell me?
    Just started 2 days ago, so I’m not that good at reading yet^^

  19. MrGood August 19th, 2010 8:26 pm

    Verse Chords
    G, D, F# (repeat however many times)

    G, Bmin, F# (x3)
    G, D

  20. Woodshed August 24th, 2010 5:24 pm

    MrGood: Thanks!

  21. Milz December 25th, 2011 10:36 pm

    Is this right! I’d love to learn this song, but i’m finding it really hard to read! Is there any other ways to play it? Really Good Though! :)

  22. Sabs November 8th, 2013 7:57 pm

    This is so cool, thank you :)

  23. Woodshed November 9th, 2013 8:27 am

    Sabs: You’re welcome!

    I made a tab for ukulele in low G-tuning, is there any way that I could post it here?

  25. Woodshed June 18th, 2016 7:27 am

    MMKMatthews: Thanks! Can you post it in the comments?

  26. MMKMatthews June 18th, 2016 3:26 pm

    I think the comment section might mess up the form of this, but here’s a tab for the Ukulele in low-G tuning:


    [G] [D]

    B [F#]
