Song: A Reminder
Band: Radiohead
Tabbed by: Soldier Poet (Pieter K.)
Tuning: Standard

This is a nice but quite unknown song. But like almost all Radiohead songs, it has this 
ambience. :)

There are three different guitars playing in this song; I`ve put the Guitar 1 parts first
and at the end you can find the other parts if you need them.
I`ve done this because the Guitar 1 parts are the most important, and to avoid confusion.

GUITAR 1

During the intro, Guitar 1 plays something like this:

e|------------------|
B|----5-------------|
G|-------9--9-9-----|
D|----------9-9-----|
A|------------------|
E|------------------|

Just vary a bit with this. Or just strum the E chord!

Verse 1:

Guitar 1 plays these chords in this order:
   E   C   G  Gmaj7 E
e|-0-|-3-|-3-|-2-|--0-|
B|-0-|-5-|-3-|-3-|--0-|
G|-1-|-5-|-4-|-0-|--1-|
D|-2-|-5-|-5-|-0-|--2-|
A|-2-|-3-|-5-|-1-|--2-|
E|-0-|---|-3-|-3-|--0-|

Listen to the song for the strumming pattern.

E     C   G            Gmaj7 E
If I get old, I'll not give in
And if I do, remind me of this
Remind me that   I was once free
Once I was cool  Once I was me

E         C   G             Gmaj7 E
And if I sit down and cross my arms
Hold me   up to   this song


Chorus:

D         A     C            E
Knock me out, smash out my brains
C         E        B             Am       E
If I take a chair, start to talk shit...

Verse 2:

E     C   G            Gmaj7 E
If I get old, remind me of this:
That night we kissed, and I really meant it
Whatever happens, if we're still speaking
Pick up the phone, play me this song

GUITAR 2 & 3 PARTS

Intro:

Guitar 2 (distorted) plays small fills through the intro, like:

e|------------------|
B|------------------|
G|-----11/12\11-----|    Also just improvise a bit in E major and with
D|------------------|    the notes from the Guitar 1 part, use your
A|------------------|    imagination!
E|------------------|

Guitar 3: from around 0:55 you can hear a third guitar strumming this chord. It`s best 
strum this with your nails
because it sounds too heavy when played with a plectrum:

e|---|
B|---|
G|-9-|  Listen to the song for the strumming pattern.
D|-9-|
A|-7-|
E|---|

Verse 1:

Guitar 2 (overdriven) just plays this chord a lot during the verse (once at the 
of each bar):

e|------|
B|--5---|
G|--9---|
D|------|
A|------|
E|------|

And at certain moments he plays this:

e|----------|
B|----------|
G|-11/12\11-|
D|----------|
A|----------|
E|----------|

He also plays other fills, but again just improvise a bit.

Guitar 3 quietly strums this all the time (every bar, just listen to the song):

e|---------------|
B|---------------|
G|--9-9-9-9------|
D|--9-9-9-9------|
A|---------------|
E|---------------|

Chorus:

I think Guitar 2 just plays arpeggio`s here but I`m not sure yet. I`ll do this later I suppose.


Soloish thingy by Guitar 2 (distorted):

e|---12~----/17~-----12~---------|
B|-------------------------------|
G|-------------------------------|
D|-------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------|

Now THAT is hard, huh? :)

Verse 2:

Guitar 2: repeat earlier notes and fills, the only clear fill that can be heard here is 
little bend:

G|-11b-| (distorted)
