*you can call it Fm/C if you want to
In the very bottom of the tab you'll find "The Geek's Corner",
where we'll extend the chords to something a little more exotic
and add fills to spice things up - only for the hardcores/geeks.

A [C]self-fulfilling prophecy
Of endless possi[Ab/C]bility
You [Ab]roll in reams a[G]cross the street
In [Fm]algebra, in algebra
2nd Verse:
The [C]fences that you cannot climb
The sentences that [Ab/C]do not rhyme
In [Ab]all that you can [G]ever change
The [Fm]one you're looking for

It gets you [C]down
[Bb5]There's no [Ab]spark
[G] No light in the [Fm]dark
It gets you [C]down
It gets you [C]down

* "The Geek's Corner" *
Throughout the entire song Thom plays mainly a bass note and and high
melody notes that really f**ks up the harmonies and gives that weird and
frustrating sound, which is very characteristic for Radiohead as well.
"Hail To The Thief" (recommended!) is a great example of this. If these
weird notes were to be added the chords, it'd really spice things up:
Ab/C Ab6/C Ab Ab6 G G7* Bb5 Bsus2 E5 E6
 |--4--->--1----| |--4-->--4---| |--3-->--3---| |------>--1----| |--0--|>--9---|
 |--1--->--4----| |--4-->--6---| |--3-->--6---| |------>--1----| |--0--|>--9---|
 |--1--->--1----| |--5-->--5---| |--4-->--4---| |--3--->--3----| |--4--|>--9---|
 |--1--->--1----| |--6-->--x---| |--5-->--3---| |--3--->--3----| |--2--|>--6---|
 |--3--->--3----| |--6-->--6---| |--5-->--5---| |--1--->--1----| |--2--|>--7---|
 |------>-------| |--4-->--4---| |--3-->--3---| |------>-------| |--0--|>--0---|

*The G7 can even be extended to a G7b9 as the flat 9th also is played as a
melody note. It's rather hard to pull this one off, but I've added fingers:
 |---4----| - 2nd finger (middle)
 |---6----| - 4th finger (pinky)
 |---4----| - 1st finger (index)
 |---5----| - 3rd finger (ring)
 |---3----| - thumb

...All these chords can be played instead of the regular chords from above.
You can also add these (and your own!) melody notes to the chords:
[C] [Fm]  
 |---0---0-1-3---| |---1-----------|
 |---1-----------| |---1---1-2-1---|
 |---0-----------| |---1-----------|
 |---2-----------| |---3-----------|
 |---3-----------| |---3-----------|
 |---------------| |---1-----------|

These notes are played in the verses and prechorus at some point, but just
add as many small melodies (these are very small) as possible as it gives
this extra momentum to the guitar that usually only play chords, go for it!
