(Nice Dream)

Performed by: Radiohead
Written by: Thomas Yorke, Edward O'Brien, Colin Greenwood, Jonathan Greenwood and Philip Selway 
From the Album : The Bends (1995)

Tabbed by A Friend With Weed

You'll be looking back to these often enough so they're worth playing individually
just to practise. Stick with this song it's worth it in the end because in
technicality it's quite easy and impresses non-guitar-playing folks. Suckers.

There's some pretty scary chord names in there. But here's my favourite:

        Bb maj7 add #11 b9 (ha ha)    6  X  7  7  0  0

Those are the chords.

Now, how do they fit into the song. Well, i'll show you.

INTRO:     Cmaj7  //  Badd11  //  Bb  //  Aadd9
           Cmaj7  //  Badd11  //  Bb

BRIDGE:     Fadd9  //  F*  //  Fadd9  // F*

VERSE 1:     Fadd9                    A#
        They love me like I was their brother,
                                C7sus4    C7
        They protect me, listen to me.
             Fadd9              A#
        They dug me my very own garden,
                                  C7sus4    C7
        Gave me sunshine, made me happy.

CHORUS 1:     Bm11        E7          (BRIDGE)
         Nice dream, nice dream, nice dream.

VERSE 2: (same chords as verse 1)
        I call up my friend the good angel,
        But she's out with her ansaphone.
        She say's that she'd love to come help,
        But the sea would electrocute us all.

CHORUS 2:     Bm11        C7          Fadd9       G7/D
         Nice dream, nice dream, nice dream, nice dream,
              Bm11        C7          F#
         Nice dream, nice dream, nice dream.

INSTRUMENTAL: Fsus2  //  Gsus4  //  G#maj7*  //  A#*   (x4)

CHORUS REPRISE: Bm11 // Bm11 G9-Fadd9* // C7sus4 // C7sus4 Fadd9/C
                Fadd9 // Fadd9 // G7/D // G7/D //
                Bm11 // Bm11 G9-Fadd9* // C7sus4 // C7

                     Fadd9       G7/D       Bm11        Bbmaj7add#11b9
                Nice dream, nice dream, nice dream, nice dream.

Finish on Aadd9.


In the second measure of the CHORUS REPRISE the B9-Aadd9* is a link between the
two measures and is two quavers at the end of the measure.

REMEMBER (for those of you who know what i mean) this is in 6/8 so keep the swing going.

In the chord list at the top, two chords (B7/F# and Asus2) are missing a high 'e'
string fret positioning. This is my computer doesn't want to let me type there.
What gives there? But anyway the string is left open both times. You may be noticing
a pattern in the chords regarding the two highest strings? If not you're an idiot
and probably can't even read this so you won't even know i called you an idiot.
And really you shouldn't be on the internet at all unless you want to look at porn.
Which is reasonable i suppose. But I mean even illiterate people can see that the
 characters are the same. I'm really getting worked up over nothing. If you've
stopped reading you have more intelligence than i do. I'm still writing...
