RADIOHEAD - "OPTIMISTIC"

Bass "IMROV" section:

-This is the section of "bass improv" before the "jazz breakdown outro".
I've seen that it was tabbed with a note to improv on the high "D" string, so I decided 
tab the whole thing out a la album version(Kid A) because it does a bit more than just 
on the high "D". Some of the timing is tricky, so listen while you play.


Side Note: I'm not positive if the triplets that you will see are regarded as 1/4 note 
1/8 note triplets, so once again, if you are thrown off by that, just listen to the song.

TABBED BY: Umphrekish(Fitz)
_______________________________________________________________________
TUNING: DADG
| 3 |= triplet
h= hammer on
p= pull off
x= mute
(mutes are optional - I have a slightly funky style and I like to use them.)
