* RADIOHEAD - Let Down * OK Computer LP * Guitar tab by Drew Steven McGovern NOTE: Transcribed to generate appreciation for an outstanding guitar part. Style of a tweaked REM progression. Odd time signature-- beautiful transition into the song (when the band kicks in, during the 1st and 2nd verse). During the break, use (Part H) as a guide, but best to make up your own or just take a smoke break, since there's all kinds of guitar/synth going on at that point. It should be noted that this illustration in no way condones cigarette smoking of any kind. - Caffeen@ix.netcom.com (Drew) 7/29/97 chords over verse: A E F#m E PART A - (intro/1st part of verses): E----------5----------0---------4----------0---- (repeat) B---3----3-----3----3-----3---3-----3---3------- G-6----6-----6 ---6-----6---6-----6---6--------- D----------------------------------------------- A----------------------------------------------- E----------------------------------------------- PART B - (2nd half of 1st verse only): E----------------------------------------------------- B----3---3---3-3----3----3-3----3---3-3----3----3-3--- etc. G------6---6------6----6------6---6------6----6------- D----------------------------------------------------- A----------------------------------------------------- E----------------------------------------------------- PART C - (transition from verses to chorus): E-5-4-0----- B-------0--- G----------- D----------- A----------- E----------- PART D - (1st chorus only): -------0---------0-------0--------------5------4-----0----- ----0-------0------0---0--------3----3----3------3-----0--- (repeat) -11-------9---7------9-----7--6---6----------6-----6------- ----------------------------------------------------------- ----------------------------------------------------------- ----------------------------------------------------------- PART E - (ending to all choruses): -------0--------0-------0------0--------0----------------- ----0------0------0---0----------0--------0--------------- -11------9---7------9-----7--6-----6--4-----2--1---------- -------------------------------------------------2-------- ---------------------------------------------------2--(0)- ---------------------------------------------------------- PART F - (2nd half of 2nd verse), played quickly: -------0---------5--------0---------4----------0--- ---3--------3--------3---------3---------3--------- repeat from * -6---6---*6---6----6---6-----6----6----6----6------ --------------------------------------------------- --------------------------------------------------- --------------------------------------------------- PART G - (2nd & 3rd choruses): play quickly from ++ ------0---------0-------0--------------5--------4--------0-------0--- ----0------0------0---0-----------3---------3--------3-------3------- -11------9---7------9-----7--++6----6-----6---6----6---6---6---6----- --------------------------------------------------------------------- --------------------------------------------------------------------- --------------------------------------------------------------------- PART H - SOME of the guitar from the break (a sonic cacophony/barrage of guitar).
