--3------------------------------3-----------------------------

"from my life support, my iron lung..."

 

--intro riff again--

 

the second verse is exactly like the first except there's a second

guitar now that plays these parts:

 

verse two:

------------------------/15--11--10--

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

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

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

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

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

"we're too young to fall asleep"

too cynical to speak"

 

(don't play the riff that should go here)

----------------/14-11-10----------11-10-11-10-11-

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

--9-8-7-6-5-5-5-4-4-4-

-10-9-8-7-6-6-6-5-5-5-

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

 

bridge/chorus:

(this is what I play, it's not perfect, but it's a start. listen to the

album for the rythm. there's a lot of sliding and noise in here. it's

pretty easy to reproduce...play this twice for a chorus)

 

(^=1/4 bend)

----------------------0-0----0----0--------------------------------

--3------------------------------3---------------------------------

when the powr runs out we'll just hum.

 

(play the second part of the verse like the second part of the vs.2)

this. this is our new song,

just like the last one,

a total waste of time,

my iron lung.

 

(bridge/chorus again 4x. on third and fourth time, there's a little

solo-type thing. listen to the album to see how it's placed:)

 

solo 1:

G G G G C C E E E E

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

----------------------------3-------------------------8-7-6-5-4-4-4-3-

------5p3-----5p3-----5p3h5---5p3h5p3-----5p3-----5p3-----------------

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

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

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

 

G G G G C C E E E E E

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

------5^------5^-----5^-5^-5^-----5^-----5^---8-7-6-5-4-4-4-3-3-3-

------5^------5^-----5^-5^-5^-----5^-----5^-----------------------

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

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

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

 

real bridge (not to be confused with that other thing I'm calling a

bridge...)

 

I'm getting tired, so I'm not going to draw a bunch of the same chord.

You can figure out the rythm:

---------------0----------------------------------------------------

---3-----------1----------------------2--------------------3--------

---0-----------0----------------------------------------------------

---------------2----------------------3--------------------5--------

---2-----------3----------------------4--------------------6--------

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

if you're frightened you can be frightened you can be that's ok

 

then the chorus 4 more times and you're done. The sencond time on the

chorus there is yet another solo, but, in typical Radiohead fashion,

it's not that tough:

('b'=1/2 bend)

 

G G G G C C E E

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

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

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

---------8__----------8__---------8---10-8-10b-10-8-10-8--------8__-

--8h9h10-------8h9h10------8-9-10------------------------8h9h10-----

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

 

(scratch and make noise

E E for one more bar.)

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

---------------------8-7-6-5-4-4-4-3-3-3----------------------------

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

----------8__ 10-8--------------------------------------------------

---8-9-10-----------------------------------------------------------

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