                             Radiohead - My Iron Lung
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Zaqq

Notes: I used the original bass master track to tab it:
       http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-46u9fQaFOU
       The chorus parts have slapping and popping in it.

Tuning: standard (EADG)

Can't believe no one rated this. It's the only tab here that's based on the master track and, most importantly, it's correct!
