| RADIOHEAD - MY IRON LUNG intro, Version 2.0* |

* Version 1.0 written 6/9/95 by Dan Zink

this post is in response to the errant version of the My Iron Lung
intro I found all over the web (no offense to it's creator - the
differences are minor, but important)

so, while nothing, including this file, is perfect, I'm sure it is
a marked improvement over the previous one - enjoy


NEW IMPROVED intro:

Note: / = slide up

play w/ dual pitch shifter
                                    (bend, hold & release)

If you'd like the rest of the song, there's a good chance I've
got that down by the time you read this - so just e-mail me.
Right now, however, I simply don't have the time...

hope you enjoy it, and I also hope you have a pitch shifter, or 
else you just can't play this correctly

This is pretty risky, trying to tabulate "my iron lung," which is one of 
Radioheads best songs for that awesome breakdown/chorus.  I can almost 
guarantee you it should be different, but then again, Radiohead doesn't 
really seem like the usual barre chord sort...
Trans. by Ricky Lee (captain_zodiac@hotmail.com)

Both of the previously posted intros work pretty good, depending on what 
type of equipment you have.  The rest goes something like:

--intro--

then verse one: (the verses have continual feedback. you'll have to 
figure out the tones)

bass plays G              C
---------------------------------------------
---------------------------------------------
---------------------------------------------
---------------------------------------------
---------------------------------------------
---------------------------------------------
          

-----------------------------------------------------------------

------0---0--------------0---0---------0---0---------------------
----0-------0----------2-------2-----0-------0-------------------
--------------0------3-----------3-------------0-----------------
--3--------------------------------3-----------------------------
        

verse one riff:

-----------4----4-4--4----5------5------

--------------0-----3----------1-------------0-----------------
--3------------------------------3-----------------------------
        "from my life support, my iron lung..."

--intro riff again--

the second verse is exactly like the first except there's a second 
guitar now that plays these parts:

verse two:
------------------------/15--11--10--
-------------------------------------
-------------------------------------
-------------------------------------
-------------------------------------
-------------------------------------

(don't play the riff that should go here)
----------------/14-11-10----------11-10-11-10-11-
--------------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------------------

----0-------0---------2-------2-----0-------0-----------------------
--------------0-----3-----------3-------------0---------------------
--3-------------------------------3---------------------------------
        "we are grateful for, our iron__   lung."

--intro again, then (the fun part)--

----------------------
----------------------
----------------------
--9-8-7-6-5-5-5-4-4-4-
-10-9-8-7-6-6-6-5-5-5-
----------------------

bridge/chorus:  
(this is what I play, it's not perfect, but it's a start.  listen to the 
album for the rythm. there's a lot of sliding and noise in here. it's 
pretty easy to reproduce...play this twice for a chorus)

  (^=1/4 bend)
----------------------0-0----0----0--------------------------------

-x-x--9-8-7-6-5-5-5-4-4-4- repeat, then two bars of intro.
-x-x-10-9-8-7-6-6-6-5-5-5-

--3------------------------------3---------------------------------
  

(play the second part of the verse like the second part of the vs.2)
   
(bridge/chorus again 4x. on third and fourth time, there's a little 
solo-type thing. listen to the album to see how it's placed:)

solo 1:
  G G     G G     C C                 E E     E E
----------------------------------------------------------------------
----------------------------3-------------------------8-7-6-5-4-4-4-3-
------5p3-----5p3-----5p3h5---5p3h5p3-----5p3-----5p3-----------------
----------------------------------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------------------------

  G G     G G    C C          E E    E E    E
------------------------------------------------------------------
------5^------5^-----5^-5^-5^-----5^-----5^---8-7-6-5-4-4-4-3-3-3-
------5^------5^-----5^-5^-5^-----5^-----5^-----------------------
------------------------------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------------------------------

real bridge (not to be confused with that other thing I'm calling a 
bridge...)

I'm getting tired, so I'm not going to draw a bunch of the same chord.  
You can figure out the rythm:
---------------0----------------------------------------------------
---3-----------1----------------------2--------------------3--------
---0-----------0----------------------------------------------------
---------------2----------------------3--------------------5--------
---2-----------3----------------------4--------------------6--------
--------------------------------------------------------------------

then the chorus 4 more times and you're done.  The sencond time on the 
chorus there is yet another solo, but, in typical Radiohead fashion, 
it's not that tough:
('b'=1/2 bend)

  G G          G G         C C                           E E
--------------------------------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------------------------------------
---------8__----------8__---------8---10-8-10b-10-8-10-8--------8__-
--8h9h10-------8h9h10------8-9-10------------------------8h9h10-----
--------------------------------------------------------------------

                                          (scratch and make noise
          E E                              for one more bar.)
--------------------------------------------------------------------
---------------------8-7-6-5-4-4-4-3-3-3----------------------------
--------------------------------------------------------------------
----------8__ 10-8--------------------------------------------------
---8-9-10-----------------------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------------------------------------

and you're done. I love this song, and when I play it this way it pretty 
much rocks.  Look on the previous postings for the intro riffs (one is 
good if you don't have a tone-thingy--I don't, but the other's probably 
more authentic.)  If I've missed anything or screwed it up, write me at 
captain_zodiac@hotmail.com.  Thanks. Ricky.
