Standard guitar tuning:EADGBENo capo
DPerformed by: Radiohead Written by: Thomas Yorke, Edward O'Brien, Colin Greenwood, Jonathan Greenwood and Philip Selway From the Album : The Bends (1995) You'll be looking back to these often enough so they're worth playing individually just to practise. Stick with this song it's worth it in the end because in technicality it's quite easy and impresses non-guitar-playing folks. Suckers. Chords: Cmaj7 8 10 10 9 0 0 Bbadd #11 b9 (Bb for short) 6 8 8 7 0 0 Aadd #11 9 (A* for short) X 0 9 8 0 0 Dadd9 6 (D for short) 10 12 12 11 0 0 Dadd9 6* (D* for short) X 5 7 7 0 0 There's some pretty scary chord names in there. But here's my favourite: Bb maj7 add #11 b9 (ha ha) 6 X 7 7 0 0 Those are the chords. Now, how do they fit into the song. Well, i'll show you.

Bm11 Bm11 B9 Aadd9 E7sus4 E7Aadd9 B7/F♯ Bm11 Bbmaj7add#11b9 Nice dream, nice dream, nice dream, nice dream. Finish on Aadd9. In the second measure of the CHORUS REPRISE the B9-Aadd9* is a link between the two measures and is two quavers at the end of the measure. REMEMBER (for those of you who know what i mean) this is in 6/8 so keep the swing going. In the chord list at the top, two chords (B7/F# and Asus2) are missing a high 'e' string fret positioning. This is my computer doesn't want to let me type there. What gives there? But anyway the string is left open both times. You may be noticing a pattern in the chords regarding the two highest strings? If not you're an idiot and probably can't even read this so you won't even know i called you an idiot. And really you shouldn't be on the internet at all unless you want to look at porn. Which is reasonable i suppose. But I mean even illiterate people can see that the characters are the same. I'm really getting worked up over nothing. If you've stopped reading you have more intelligence than i do. I'm still writing...
