Jigsaw Falling Into Place - Radiohead

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: Jon Stradinger

Email: heylookasensai@yahoo.com

 

It is my firm belief that this song, originally called "open pick", was called

this because the tuning allows for an almost open picking scheme in the key of D -

you can pick pretty much any string that you want and it will fit into the song which

adds to its many intricacies. It is also my firm belief that someone needs

to REALLY tab this song. This is the acoustic guitar part - hopefully I will add

the electric guitar parts later. Enjoi.

 

this tab is seperated into 4/4 bars when counting very fast - around 155 bpm.

Also, the point of the song is to throw your hands around a bit to get other nuances

in there - this is a rough outline, but the sequence of the notes should give the

gist of the song. I prefer to finger pick but whatevaz.

**the open d and B strings in the slide down portion after the intro are

definitely in the song, as discordant as they sound. leave them out if

they sound too funny to you.

this can be played with any picked variation of the chord in parentheses, since

the patterns change so often.

BRIDGE (1:44):

 

(i wrote out full chord shapes for the strumming here - accentuate the

climb in notes from the D string to get the effect the song has, and

fall on the other strings in the chord to fill out the bridge.)

REPEAT VERSE THEME A X2 (2:07)

 

Before you run away from me

Before you're lost between the notes

The beat goes round and round

THE BEAT GOES ROUND AND ROUND

 

I never really got there

I just pretended that I had

What's the point of instruments

Words are a sawed off shotgun

 

Come on and let it out

Come on and let it out

Come on and let it out

Come on and let it out

 

Before you run away from me

Before you're lost between the notes

Just as you take the mic

Just as you dance

 

INTRO TO VERSE B (2:54):

 

(this is the gist of it. THROW YOUR HANDS AROUND!!! There is also another

acoustic guitar playing along with the strings)
