Optimistic

 
  
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.

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.
