Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics
Major upgrade!! After one year development the new version of Chordie is now online! Please give feedback.

Optimistic  Radiohead

this is probably the poorest tab ever made but i hope its something to
work with
h=hammer on
p=pull off
*=let ring
during the intro this fits in pretty good
 e -5/-7/--2*-1/-3-2--- 

chords: F G D C#(or maybe F instead) D# D
this is kinda of what i mean
[F] [G] [D] [F] [D#] [D] 

or this way
[F] [G] [D] [F] [D#] [D] 

i think the second guitar is playing along using the G Major scale...

NOTE: this is not how to play it! this is just the scale.. listen to
the song and use this..
there is one chord that (jonny?) plays with just a slow upstroke im
not sure which one
but i think its some sort of F chord..
im sure i got lots of things really wrong but i hope i at least helped
you guys out..

Ok, as there isn't any good quality recording of this song so I wasn't able to tab it perfectly. Anyway, here you have some chord so you can play and sing... enjoy!!
F x00565
G 320033
D xx0232
A# x13331
C x32010
Dm xx0231
Dsus2 xx0230
Dsus4 xx0233
 F-G-D A#-C-D --> 2 times

Dm Dsus2 Dsus4 D --> 2 times
[Dm]Flies are buzzing around [Dsus2]my head
[Dsus4]Vultures circling [D]my bed
[A#]Picking up [C]every last [D]crumb
[Dm]The big fish eat the litt[Dsus2]le ones
[Dm]The big fish eat the litt[Dsus2]le ones
[A#]Not my prob[C]lem give me[D] some
You can [F]try the best you can
If you [G]try the best you [G]can
The [A#]best you can is[C] good [D]enough
Then theres a little lick that goes like this...
 G---------3-2----0-3-2----------------- It goes over and over during
 D----------------------0--------------- the Dm Dsus2... chords on
 A-------------------------------------- the verse.

During the chorus theres some kind of scale playing that i won't bother to tab, it's fairly easy.
This was all i could do... this is just a simple version so you can play and sing with your acoustic guitar...
