RADIOHEAD- Knives Out (un-released)

 

transcription by Joey Gallagher (joeygallagher@hotmail.com)

 

What you have in this song is 3 guitars. Thom doing the acoustic rythm.

Jonny doing all the sharp sounding riffs. And Colin adding some bass lines

(I haven't bothered to include that) The songs pretty straight forward and

incorporates alot of Paranoid Android chords.

The chorus of the song can be kind of hard to distinguish because of Colin's

bass lines, which can kind of mislead you because he's darting around what

the others are playing.

 

Chords Used

 

Cm- (8x088x)

Bbadd6- (6x878x)

Ab- (4x654x) or can also try Ab9- (4x554x) I think Thom switches back and

forth between these two quickly in some parts of the song.

Gm- (3x033x)

Fsus2- (1x023x)

Em6- (02202x)

F#- (2x02xx)

G- (3x0xxx)

Am- (5x755x)

Dm- (xx0231)

Dm/C- (x3023x)

Bb9- (6x076x)

Put him in the pot

 

So knives out

Catch the mouse

Shove it in your mouth

 

CLIMB

1 2 3 4 5 6 1 2 3 4 5 6

Look into my eyes

It's the only way you'll know I'm telling the truth

 

REFRAIN

The song ends with chord #6. But everybody has to find out on his/her own how to play the strings like Thom does.

But these must be the chords for the acoustic guitar part.
