Knives Out  Radiohead

RADIOHEAD- Knives Out (un-released)
transcription by Joey Gallagher (joeygallagher@hotmail.com)
What you have in this song is 3 guitars. Thom doing the acoustic rythm.
Jonny doing all the sharp sounding riffs. And Colin adding some bass lines
(I haven't bothered to include that) The songs pretty straight forward and
incorporates alot of Paranoid Android chords.
The chorus of the song can be kind of hard to distinguish because of Colin's
bass lines, which can kind of mislead you because he's darting around what
the others are playing.
Chords Used
Cm- (8x088x)
Bbadd6- (6x878x)
Ab- (4x654x) or can also try Ab9- (4x554x) I think Thom switches back and
forth between these two quickly in some parts of the song.
Gm- (3x033x)
Fsus2- (1x023x)
Em6- (02202x)
F#- (2x02xx)
G- (3x0xxx)
Am- (5x755x)
Dm- (xx0231)
Dm/C- (x3023x)
Bb9- (6x076x)
