Radiohead - My Iron Lung
 * Album: The Bends

* Guitar tab by Wiktor Banck 

*Note: I've seen many "my iron lung" tabs and all sounds so wrong. so i decided to
tab it myself.


Key:
 ^= bend
 /= slide down
 X= pick scrapes (note: to do the pick weird noise right at the end, rub
the plectrum on the up and down on the string (not top to bottom) rapidly
with distort on).

This is the main riff, but take note that everytime it's played after every
verse or chorus, there's a slight variation of it.

IT'S OK!!

ok, that's not the whole song but most parts of it.. i tabbed this song at an
acoustic guitar so i couldn't figure out the last part of the song.
But perhaps later on i can tab the whole song for you. Have fun;) please note:
if you find any problems or something that sounds wrong. mail me:)

"ok, that's not the whole song but most parts of it"
