The Clock
Thom Yorke Lyrics


Time is running out for us
But you just move the hands upon the clock
You throw coins in the wishing well
For us
You just move your hands upon the wall

It comes to you begging you to stop
Wake up
But you just move your hands upon the clock
Throw coins in the wishing well
For us
You make believe that you are still in charge

Now that's how you play acoustic guitar kids.

Just an average bi boy

@agenerichuman can confirm. I'm not very good and this sounds amazing on my 12 string. Tuning it is a bitch though

agenerichuman

It's more obvious if you watch his hand on the fretboard. Maybe slow it down.

Believe it or not, but it's easier to play that it appears.

The tuning means he can play simple chords using one or two fingers. And he hammers and releases his fingers when playing the notes in the middle, which is an easy way to play a few notes quickly without having to strum each individually or doing all the fingering.

It's very stylish and innovative, but even moderately skilled guitarists could pick this up with a little practice.

It's crazy to think that this man is the 3rd best guitarist in Radiohead. Can't wait for the new record

@Dingus Khan ed is the special sauce

@Dingus Khan Jealous, much?

Johnny > Thom > most ppl > Ed. Literally only a whiny shoegaze guitarist who spends more money on pedal than time on honing songwriting skills would think otherwise
