  • crazyforuku says:

    thanks izzazel didnt think of that

  • Stig says:

    I cant work out how to play the solo bit at the start. Anyone able to post a video on line somewhere?

  • bintangpanglima says:

    great

  • Sweetjaques says:

    It’s “in a beautiful world”

  • Iggyfofiggy says:

    It sounds weird to me. But only starting with a G. Everything else is fine. Is there a chord I can replace it with?

    • Bells says:

      You don’t need to change the chords. It sounds weird to me too so i played around with a capo. If you put it on the 1st fret it sounds really good.

  • Mackenzie says:

    What’s up with the chords for the bridge?

  • Ziao says:

    The same as the rest of the song. The chords repeat over and over and over.

  • Liz says:

    A B7 chord can also be substituted for the B chord, I think it sounds just as nice and a bit bittersweet. And I second the comment about figuring out the solo portion on your own, it’s not too difficult to play by ear.

  • l0st0bscurity says:

    To Mackenzie: Listen to the song for the bridge and just apply the chords in the same a=order accordingly. I did this:

    G B C Cm G B C Cm
    oooh… she’s running away….she’s running…run..run…run..ruuuuun

    Or something along those lines

  • lea says:

    +5 with E7 instead of E sounds great and is VERY easy!

  • Jill says:

    I’m using Em rather than B, and I like it. You may not, I just think it sounds good; especially with the pitch and tone of my voice.

  • Delia says:

    -2 is good chords for the PMJ version of this, in case anyone is wondering

  • Red23 says:

    The b7 chord does sound ggreat& is a lot easier transition for beginners. This is such a great song anyway, it would be hard to go wrong with any rhythm if you know the melody anyway

  • PaigeWatson says:

    FYI, the words to the bridge are:

    She’s running out again,
    She’s running out
    She’s run run run run

  • Cheyenne says:

    weather should be world

  • BeautifulMusicLover says:

    A much easier way to play is Capo third fret chord C strum down 8 times then G 8 times then Am 8 times (remember all is 8) then you play a chord that i dont know what its called but you put your first finger on the fret closets to the capo on the G string then you skip C string then you put your second finger on E string closets to the capo and then you put your pinky finger on the third fret away from the capo on the A string. Hope this helps!!!!!

  • Arabella says:

    Honestly came here from jinkx monsoons cover I didn’t actually know radio head sung this originally…oops

  • yesismean says:

    I transposed to +5 and I replaced E with Em, you don’t have to but it made it easier for me

  • Yenty says:

    what a strumming pattern in this song?

  • Nura says:

    What does the letter means in the tab?? Like it says “4h” is it a typo or??

  • Mags says:

    I found that it works best to end song on a G, but it also works if you let the Cm ring.

  • Ryker Webb says:

    Strum pattern?

    • kiki says:

      Amanda Palmer’s strum pattern is my favorite, it’s up, down, up, chunk. Four times per chord. It imitates the percussion in the song and sounds really cool.

  • Daisy says:

    I love it! It’s really amazing! I recemmend the 0, it matches the song.

  • cardona.ahtziri says:

    Is there a chord i can replace B with.?

  • dylanoliver says:

    Anybody having trouble figuring out the strumming pattern, I’d recommend looking up “emmanoodle creep” on youtube, she did an amazing job with it on ukulele.

  • JamieWithL says:

    My strumming pattern is DDUDUDU with a little space of time between de UDUDU Part, it’s easier I think, and it sounds good for me.

  • Sage Wilcox says:

    If anyone wants to play along to Postmodern Jukebox’s cover of this song, just transpose to -2

  • Josh says:

    If all the chords are played barre-wise it becomes easy.

    G= Barre 2nd Fret, put finger on E-string Third Fret and G-string Fourth Fret.
    B= You know the shape, just move your middle finger up to C-string.
    C= Slide the B shape up one fret, i.e. barre 3rd Fret.
    Cm= Remove your middle finger from the C-string.

    Back to G.

  • Bryce says:

    Personally I play this completely differently. I always found homeless mustards rendition to be my favorite cover of this song and rewrote it for my uke cause I could not figure out the guitar chords he used for the life of me. But these are the chords i Use and i find it to be as on point as possible to it as I can make it. I start with first chord a B chord, Then next chord go to Open G string 3rd fret C string 3rd Fret E string and 1st Fret A string, Then next chord I bar the 4th fret for G C and E strings and 2nd Fret for the A string, And for the last chord G and C string still at 4th fret but drop E string to the 3rd Fret and A string still on the 2nd fret.

    I would love feedback to hear if anybody agrees with me!

  • Trinitydobb.s says:

    I use the strumming pattern D-D-UDUD-UDU twice on each chord. I think it sounds okay :)

Do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you.
