STREET SPIRIT
by RADIOHEAD
from THE BENDS




There are four picking patterns used throughout the song. One for each of
the Am, Em and C chords used, with a change of pattern on the Am in the
second and subsequent verses (although the original pattern is still used
for the choruses and outro). Its hard to tell what the fingerpicked
guitar does when the chords change  in the outro, as there is another
guitar over the top, playing some similar ideas up an octave (I might get
round to transcribing these one day!)

Here is the chord structure for the song:
Note that the complete picking pattern takes up two bars.

Am 
Rows of houses, all bearing down on me
I can feel their blue hands touching me
Em
All these things into position, 
All these things we'll one day swallow whole
Am (4 bars)
    C    Em  Am
And fade out again
    C    E*m  Am
And fade out again
    C   Em     Am 
Ohhhhhh Ohhhhh Ohhhhh
    C   Em
Ohhhhhh Ohhhhh 

*First chorus ends here.
 Third chorus as above, but with a double length "Ohhhhh" section.
