this is probably the poorest tab ever made but i hope its something to

work with



h=hammer on

p=pull off

*=let ring


during the intro this fits in pretty good


e -5/-7/--2*-1/-3-2---


chords: F G D C#(or maybe F instead) D# D


this is kinda of what i mean


F G D F D# D









or this way



F G D F D# D










i think the second guitar is playing along using the G Major scale...









NOTE: this is not how to play it! this is just the scale.. listen to

the song and use this..


there is one chord that (jonny?) plays with just a slow upstroke im

not sure which one

but i think its some sort of F chord..


im sure i got lots of things really wrong but i hope i at least helped

you guys out..




RADIOHEAD - Optimistic


Ezequiel Claverie


Ok, as there isn't any good quality recording of this song so I wasn't able to tab it perfectly. Anyway, here you have some chord so you can play and sing... enjoy!!





F x00565

G 320033

D xx0232

A# x13331

C x32010

Dm xx0231

Dsus2 xx0230

Dsus4 xx0233




F-G-D A#-C-D --> 2 times




Dm Dsus2 Dsus4 D --> 2 times



Dm Dsus2

Flies are buzzing around my head

Dsus4 D

Vultures circling my bed

A# C D

Picking up every last crumb

Dm Dsus2

The big fish eat the little ones

Dm Dsus2

The big fish eat the little ones

A# C D

Not my problem give me some




You can try the best you can


If you try the best you can

A# C D

The best you can is good enough


Then theres a little lick that goes like this...




G---------3-2----0-3-2----------------- It goes over and over during

D----------------------0--------------- the Dm Dsus2... chords on

A-------------------------------------- the verse.



During the chorus theres some kind of scale playing that i won't bother to tab, it's fairly easy.


This was all i could do... this is just a simple version so you can play and sing with your acoustic guitar...
