Optimistic Chord Guitar - Radiohead

 
Transcribed BY: Chris McGuire

This is how I play it. I got the chorus from Andrew Prefontaine's Tab i just
put in the opening riffs. You have to listen to the album to get the rythm
and timing right.

>>Outra Vers'o

Optimistic By Radiohead

Tabbed by Andrew Prefontaine

Here's how the song is supposed to go. The previous tabs of it were
pretty close
but not quite on the mark.

I won't post lyrics with this tab because there seems to be a big stink
about it if
you do.

It's pretty simple, and believe it or not repetitive
Use your own beat style. I only wrote it like this so it would be easy
to understand the dsus4 d dsus4 d part.
