About this tab version
The original version is played in Drop C tuining, but this one is in standard for those who don'w want to change your guitar tuning. Also I added the violin part for those who wants to upgrade the song. Was this info helpful? Yes No
Radiohead - The Numbers
-----------------------

This is not the original way they play the song but I figured how to play it with standard tuning.
Also I added the violin part that starts in 3:35, you can add it if you want to upgrade the song, but you
can play the whole song without it. Hope you guys enjoy!!!!


[Intro/Verse]
This part is played throught the whole song except for the chorus

e|--3--3--3--3--3--3----3----3----3----3--3--3----3--3----3--3--3--3---------|

[Chorus]
(one day at a time......)
NOTE: The first time they say that, they play the 2 first chords of the 
chorus and immedietly go back to the verse part and play it twice.

This is how the first time sounds like: 

e|---------------------3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3---------------------------------------|
B|---------------------6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6---------------------------------------|

E|----6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6--------------------------------------------------------|

And immedietly go back to:

e|--3--3--3--3--3--3----3----3----3----3--3--3----3--3----3--3--3--3---------|
B|--4--4--4--4--4--4----3----6----5----5--5--5----5--5----5--5--5--5---------|
