			     The Clock - Thom Yorke

Tabbed By :

Tuning:

The riff only has about 3 or 4 basic variations of triplets of short-short-long, but 
order changes quite a lot so I have tabbed it all out continuously. Sorry if it is hard to 
it is the only way!
I have tried to add time and lyrical reference point to help you keep track of where you 
be, however the mixing of the song still makes it hard at the end as it fades in and out.
(There are mutes and implied notes and small slides etc throughout but these are just a 
of playing style so I haven't tabbed them)

no bass until (0:41)

I think there is then a break with no bass from (2:02), though it may just be that it is 
low in the mix, in which case simply repeat the last part of the tabbed humming section.
