                RADIOHEAD-   The National Anthem      (Kid A)



First off I've broken the song into segments so as to get some organized
format for this very un-organized song. I've only tabbed up until the end of
the 2nd verse, then the brass starts and it's pretty pointless tabbing all
that. What I've tabbed out is Jonnys martenot for the keyboard and guitar.
I'm using the same piano instructions as normal.  I will put the note and
then the number 1,2 or 3 in conjuction so as to tell you where on the
keyboard to hit the note.
i.e A2 means hit the A note in section 2.

   section 1                  section 2                section3
C#DEbEFF#GAbABbC           C#DEbEFF#GAbABbC       C#DEbEFF#GAbABbC
               *middle C

For the guitar note I will put it in brackets next to the keyboard note. I
will put the string and fret number.

So  A2 (G14)  means the piano is the A key in section 2 and the note
       for the guitar would be played on the G string on the
14th fret.

Here is the main bass riff played over and over throughout the song.


D---------------------------------------------------------------------|
A--9----------------9-----------------8--------------7----------------|
E-----10---10--10------10--10--10-------10--10--10------10--10--10-10-|

I've organized the song by numbering it, each number represents every time
the main riff is played. Any note under that number shows where and when
Jonny plays the martenot.
