			     My Iron Lung (Live) - Radiohead
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Gallagher2006

Jonnys Guitar
Tuning: EBGDGE

Ed/Thom Guitar
Tuning: EBGDAE

Intro (Ed) w/ Ebow/ Sustain Delay

Whenever you hear a droning noise in the background, it’s Ed playing around with this
while adjusting the volume on his guitar. It is played with an Ebow, but can be
for a heavily Reverbed and Delayed Guitar.

Ed/Thom Riff. Ed tends to strum the chords more loosely like below, but Thom seems to
stick to strumming the chords without the mutes. If you are using this tab for a band with
two guitarists though, I’d recommend using Eds way as it goes along with Jonnys riff a 
better. Also, I couldn’t line it up exactly, so isten to Song for the timing.

Thom strums at a sequence of Bb / C / Db / C twice then goes into the chorus
Chords again.

A|---------------------------16~~~-----------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------0-----------------------|

Continue to mash at that 17 while Thom sings the chorus again. The rest of Jonnys part
impossible to tab because he his pitch shifter and pick scratches a lot, creating an
impossible to tab sound.

So for Jonnys final solo part, just try and stick to the main solo, but pick scrape and
your pitch shifter a lot. Also, it sounds more like the original if you slide up and
the neck a lot and play random notes.

End on a G5 and pull off.

I don't think you have to tune Jonny's A-string down to G...

^ Yeah I thought this too. Go to Ateaseweb and ask around to see a STAGGERING amount of evidence that points to Jonny tuning his A to G.

Trust me dude.

^ Yeah it is tuned down to a G. On the Astoria, he hits a G that is too low to be a normal G and he doesn't have his hands on the guitar :)
