			     My Iron Lung (Live) - Radiohead
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Jonnys Guitar
Tuning: EBGDGE

Ed/Thom Guitar
Tuning: EBGDAE

Intro (Ed) w/ Ebow/ Sustain Delay

Whenever you hear a droning noise in the background, it’s Ed playing around with this
while adjusting the volume on his guitar. It is played with an Ebow, but can be
for a heavily Reverbed and Delayed Guitar.

Ed/Thom Riff. Ed tends to strum the chords more loosely like below, but Thom seems to
stick to strumming the chords without the mutes. If you are using this tab for a band with
two guitarists though, I’d recommend using Eds way as it goes along with Jonnys riff a 
better. Also, I couldn’t line it up exactly, so isten to Song for the timing.

Bridge

Thom strums at a sequence of Bb / C / Db / C twice then goes into the chorus
Chords again.

Thom strums the chorus chords and Ed plays Jonnys Riff over the solo:-

A|---------------------------16~~~-----------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------0-----------------------|

Continue to mash at that 17 while Thom sings the chorus again. The rest of Jonnys part
impossible to tab because he his pitch shifter and pick scratches a lot, creating an
impossible to tab sound.

So for Jonnys final solo part, just try and stick to the main solo, but pick scr*pe and
your pitch shifter a lot. Also, it sounds more like the original if you slide up and
the neck a lot and play random notes.

End on a G5 and pull off.
