This is my first tab so don’t boo too loudly please.

This tab is strictly for Thom’s part of the song, I think. If you want to get the same
as he does add a little bit of OVERDRIVE and a lot of REVERB. I haven’t been playing
long so if there is any section you feel is wrong then feel free to have a go yourself 
forgiveness prease.

The tuning for this is a little odd. I think it’s a variation on open C. The tuning
is:

C G C G B E

INTRO

Play this three times

E|----------------------|
B|-----8-----8----------|
G|---0-----0-----0---0--|
C|----------------------|
G|-------9-----9---9----|
C|-0--------------------|

This is the falling guitar part. This might not be 100% but it sounds ok when played.

E|---------------------|---------------------|----------------------|
B|-----8-----8---7---7-|-----5-----5---4---4-|-----2-----2---1---1--|
G|---0-----0-----------|---0-----0-----------|---0-----0------------|
C|---------------------|---------------------|----------------------|
G|-------9-----8---8---|-------6-----5---5---|-------3-----2---2----|
C|-0-------------------|-0-------------------|-0--------------------|

Play this around three or four times

E|----------------------|
B|-----1-----1---1---1--|
G|---0-----0------------|
C|----------------------|
G|-------2-----2---2----|
C|-0--------------------|

Play this whole thing once, and then go back up to the beginning and play the whole
again.

E|---------------------|----------------------|
B|-----1-----1---1---1-|-----1-----1---1---1--|
G|---0-----0-----------|---0-----0------------|
C|---------------------|----------------------|
G|-------1-----1---1---|-------1-----1---1----|
C|-0-------------------|-0--------------------|

E|---------------------|----------------------|
B|-----5-----5---5---5-|-----5-----5---5---5--|
G|---0-----0-----------|---0-----0------------|
C|---------------------|----------------------|
G|-------0-----0---0---|-------0-----0---0----|
C|-0-------------------|-0--------------------|

When you’ve played the intro again play this.

E|---------------------|----------------------|
B|-----1-----1---1---1-|-----1-----1---1---1--|
G|---0-----0-----------|---0-----0------------|
C|---------------------|----------------------|
G|-------1-----1---1---|-------1-----1---1----|
C|-0-------------------|-0--------------------|

Then play this twice.

E|---------------------|----------------------|
B|-----1-----1---1---1-|-----1-----1---1---1--|
G|---1-----1-----------|---1-----1------------|
C|---------------------|----------------------|
G|-------0-----0---0---|-------0-----0---0----|
C|-1-------------------|-1--------------------|

E|---------------------|----------------------|
B|-----5-----5---5---5-|-----5-----5---5---5--|
G|---5-----5-----------|---5-----5------------|
C|---------------------|----------------------|
G|-------0-----0---0---|-------0-----0---0----|
C|-0-------------------|-0--------------------|

The next part is the only bit of strumming in the main section. It comes at around the
mark. You can either play octaves or single notes on the sixth string.

E|-------------------------|--------------------------|
B|-------------------------|--------------------------|
G|-------------------------|--------------------------|
C|-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-|-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3--|
G|-------------------------|--------------------------|
C|-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-|-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3--|

E|-------------------------|--------------------------|
B|-------------------------|--------------------------|
G|-------------------------|--------------------------|
C|-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-|-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1--|
G|-------------------------|--------------------------|
C|-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-|-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1--|

E|--------------------------|
B|--------------------------|
G|--------------------------|
C|-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0--|
G|--------------------------|
C|-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0--|(you can keep this C octave going for one more bar)

MAIN SECTION


Play this twice.

E|---------------------|---------------------|----------------------|
B|-----4-----4---4---4-|-----4-----4---4---4-|-----4-----4---4---4--|
G|---0-----0-----------|---0-----0-----------|---0-----0------------|
C|---------------------|---------------------|----------------------|
G|-------5-----6---5---|-------5-----6---5---|-------5-----6---5----|
C|-0-------------------|-0-------------------|-0--------------------|

E|---------------------|----------------------|
B|-----5-----5---5---5-|-----5-----5---5---5--|
G|---0-----0-----------|---0-----0------------|
C|---------------------|----------------------|
G|-------5-----6---5---|-------5-----6---6----|
C|-0-------------------|-0--------------------|

Then this once.

E|---------------------|----------------------|
B|-----7-----7---7---7-|-----7-----7---7---7--|
G|---0-----0-----------|---0-----0------------|
C|---------------------|----------------------|
G|-------7-----8---7---|-------7-----8---7----|
C|-0-------------------|-0--------------------|

E|---------------------|----------------------|
B|-----5-----5---5---5-|-----5-----5---5---5--|
G|---0-----0-----------|---0-----0------------|
C|---------------------|----------------------|
G|-------5-----6---5---|-------5-----6---6----|
C|-0-------------------|-0--------------------|

Then this three times.

E|------------------------|
B|-----8------8---8----8--|
G|---0------0-------------|
C|-------10-----9---------|
G|------------------10----|
C|-0----------------------|


This twice.

E|----------------------|
B|-----3-----3---3---3--|
G|---0-----0------------|
C|-------5-----4--------|
G|-----------------5----|
C|-0--------------------|

Then this twice.

E|----------------------|
B|-----1-----1---1---1--|
G|---0-----0------------|
C|-------3-----2--------|
G|-----------------3----|
C|-0--------------------|

Then back up to this, which you play twice.

E|----------------------|
B|-----3-----3---3---3--|
G|---0-----0------------|
C|-------5-----4--------|
G|-----------------5----|
C|-0--------------------|

Then it’s back up to the beginning of the main section where you play a shorter
of the progression, which goes.

E|---------------------|---------------------|----------------------|
B|-----4-----4---4---4-|-----4-----4---4---4-|-----4-----4---4---4--|
G|---0-----0-----------|---0-----0-----------|---0-----0------------|
C|---------------------|---------------------|----------------------|
G|-------5-----6---5---|-------5-----6---5---|-------5-----6---5----|
C|-0-------------------|-0-------------------|-0--------------------|

E|---------------------|----------------------|
B|-----5-----5---5---5-|-----5-----5---5---5--|
G|---0-----0-----------|---0-----0------------|
C|---------------------|----------------------|
G|-------5-----6---5---|-------5-----6---6----|
C|-0-------------------|-0--------------------|

E|---------------------|----------------------|
B|-----7-----7---7---7-|-----7-----7---7---7--|
G|---0-----0-----------|---0-----0------------|
C|---------------------|----------------------|
G|-------7-----8---7---|-------7-----8---7----|
C|-0-------------------|-0--------------------|

E|---------------------|----------------------|
B|-----5-----5---5---5-|-----5-----5---5---5--|
G|---0-----0-----------|---0-----0------------|
C|---------------------|----------------------|
G|-------5-----6---5---|-------5-----6---6----|
C|-0-------------------|-0--------------------|

The song pretty much follows this pattern, switching between the shorter progression and
section until the end.

At the end strum an F octave a few times and finish on:

E|-----3--|
B|---1----|
G|--------|
C|-0------|
G|--------|
C|--------|

Hope that helped. I’m sorry if you find it a little long winded or incorrect. I’m a bit
at this old tabbing malarkey. Thanks to Radiohead for writing this fantastic song and
for making the whole process a lot easier.

Thank you and goodnight.

Lyrics:

these are my twisted words
fell off the roof still walking
i know i should not look down
but i'm so sick of just talking

when are you coming back
i just can't handle it
when are you coming back
i just can't handle it

when are you coming back
i just can't stand it
i just can't handle it

Sounds great to me! But for organisation purposes, maybe number or name the sections for easier referral.

Fucking amazing. But it needs to state when the vocals kick in.
