Bassist: Colin Greenwood
Album: Amnesiac (2001)
Tabbed by Shor Bowman (email@example.com)
*MEMBER OF THE BASS TAB ARCHIVE TABBING ARMY*
CORRECTED TABLATURE as of March 18th, 2002!
*Dexterity is germane to playing this song correctly.
My structure below shows a tab that is played very
quickly, and the fingers of the left hand must be
quite swift (and can't tucker out easily)!
Don't let me scare you——this isn't an extremely
difficult tab. Just be prepared.
*This corrected version shows how Colin plays this
song live on the album "I Might Be Wrong". But if
you're looking for how to play it the way he does in
the studio, you should find what you're looking for
here also. If not, drop me a line.
*My corrections were pretty severe. I won't go into
detail about them right here, but they should stick out
like a sore thumb.
After Thom says "...light coming on," Colin hits an open
low D and lets it ring until "I used to think that...",
followed by some improv around the high D sounding like:
You can repeat this, unti the FAST PART comes in when
Yorke sings "Open up...":
Repeat this throughout the verses. When Thom sings "Let's
go down to the waterfall," stay silent, but then come back
in with Riff #1 when he sings "...nothing at all"
That is the main riff of the song. There are, however, variations:
VARIATION #1 VARIATION #2
b b b b b b
After the instruments go silent for a bit toward the end, Jonny
comes back in with his guitar and Thom starts to croon. When this
happens, play THIS:
After you've hit that low open D, make sure that you VERY QUICKLY
go back into RIFF #2. You'll see how Colin does this if you listen
to the recording. It sounds GREAT. Colin is one of my favorite
bassists and I think that he writes terrific material, but this has
got to be one of the best he's done.
That's basically it! A little dexterity, and you've got this song
covered. Questions? Comments? Corrections? Please e—mail me.
