The complete
My Iron Lung TAB  by Radiohead


*Note: everything is jonny's guitar, and the all the chords written above the
tab are thom,(always on distort). Ed's guitar is probably the most fun, but
i'm not going to bother tabbing it out.  Let's just say it involves a pitch
shifter, the tremolo arm, and a lot of feedback:)

I realise i didn't put all of Thom's chords in, mainly cause i didn't know
them, or couldn't be bothered.  And because i didn't know what to use for a
pull-off sign, there are no pull-off signs...

Key:
 ^= bend
 /= slide down
 X= pick scr*pes (note: to do the pick weird noise right at the end, rub the
plectrum on the up and down on the string (not top to bottom) rapidly with
distort on).
 
This is the main riff, but take note that everytime it's played after every
verse or chorus, there's a slight variation of it.
