Radiohead-Videotape

So I transcribed the piano version (live from the basement) for the guitar,this should be somewhat accurate
Hope you like it

[ Please note I used this version as the main one to get a hold of the riff pattern:

and a different one to figure when the interlude comes in
 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-kCKob1YKOU .
By all means play however you like,I tried to stay as correct as I could to the piano,but its hard at times ]

A
B
C

Bx2
A     When I'm at 
Bx2   the pearly gates, this will be on

Bx2  my videotape
A When Mephistopheles is
Bx2 just beneath,and he's reaching out 
A to grab me
C
A This is one
B for the good days
B2 and I have it all here
A in red,blue,green
B in red,blue green

A You're my center
Bx2 when I spin away,out of control

B on videotape
A on videotape
B on videotape

Interlude


A This my way of 
Bx2 saying goodbye 
A 'Cause I can't do it
Bx2 face to face,I'm talking to you before
A No matter what
Bx2 happens now,you shouldn't be afraid
A Because I know today
B has been the most
A perfect day i've
B3 ever seen
(I'm not sure what else he does at the end,but make variations of B,B2 riffs)
end on Cx2
