The Bends - Radiohead
00:00 / 00:00
Tabs and lyrics
Tunning: Standard (E A D G B e)
I have yet to see a good tab of "The Bends" so I once again scoured the Internet
to find bits and pieces that were 100% correct, or at least sound like it. What
follows is a combination of a Guitar pro file (which is pretty expensive software
not many people have), several tabs, and some tabbing by me for some spots to make
it sound as close to complete as possible. I do not take credit for this transcription,
I only arranged for text format and filed in spots that were empty and corrected parts
that were wrong. I do this only to help other Radiohead fans have tabs that they are
confident in being correct. I hope to do this for as many songs as I can before I get
tired of this or explode, whichever comes first. If you have any requests for what
songs you want me to search for and arrange, please email me at mousey84@hotmail.com.
Enjoy.

And please Rate this tab, this took forever to arrange, you could at least take
a second to rate it so others can know it is good.


Note: There's a third guitar in this song (Ed O' Brien) but he tends to mostly
double Gtr. 1 loosely so it just got cut out for the sake of making this tab
easier to understand. Don't think you're missing anything, Gtr.3 just doubles
gtr 1's exact chords.


The Bends

Words and Music by: Thomas Yorke, Jonathan Greenwood,
Colin Greenwood, Ed 'O Brien, and Philip Selway

roll on the last chord


Legend:

(5)- Ghost Note: A note in parenthesis that is barely heard in a recording
or represents a note that is supposed to ring for longer than one measure.
PM - Palm mute
NH - Natural Harmonic
PH - Pinch Harmonic
B - Bend (I've placed how much to bend over the measure; for example a
.25 is a quarter step bend, a .5 is a half step bend, a .75 is a
three fourths step bend, a 1 would be a whole step bend, 2.5 would
be a two and a half step bend, etc.
Pb - Pre-Bend: The note is bent to a pre-determined pitch before it is
picked.

Pbr- Pre-Bend Release: The note is bent to a predetermined pitch before it
is picked and is released to its original pitch.

Brh- Bend Release Hammer-on: Bend note to a pitch then release it to its
Original pitch then either hammer-on or pull-off to a higher or
Lower fret.

/ - Slide: If I have to explain this one you shouldn't be playing this
song.

H - Hammer-on

Br - Bend-Release: Bend note to a pitch then release it to its original
Pitch.
~~ - Vibrato: Vibrating a string either by moving up and down with your
fingers or by using a whammy bar.
