"Fake Plastic Trees" by Radiohead

This file done by: "Grambo4"
Special thanks to Glenn Rubenstein, whose tab I'm using as the basis for my version


Some of the tabs I've seen have the right chords, just not all the ones used in the
song, which leaves the tune quite incomplete and one-dimensional (and wrong...). So, I'm
putting in the chords which have been missing. This is just for one, acoustic guitar, so 
it's still pretty basic, and easily covered.

Listen to the song to get the rhythm pattern for strumming. I confess I'm not very good
at typing those out. My apologies. You'll get the hang of it though!

Chords:

Asus:  x02200
A:     x02220
Aadd4: x02230
Amaj7: x02120
F#m7:  2x022(0) - not sure that's the proper name, but it's right.
Emaj6: 022120
Dsus:  xx0230 - this I think is optional, but you can have fun and mix it up
D:     xx0232
Bm7:   x2x230

I could blow through the ceiling
