Just mess around on these chords until the vocals come
In, then play the verse.

The rest of the song skips between the F# G A G F#

and the F# G A G F# F#m E G chord sequence in the
verse parts.

RADIOHEAD-   Pyramid Song  (piano tab)   Amnesiac

transcription by Joey Gallagher  (joeygallagher@hotmail.com)


Aside from the time signatures present this is a fairly easy song to play. 
It has no individual keys used but just plodding chords struck throughout. 
All the chords are simple to play aside from a couple during the intro and 
outro of the song where you really have to stretch your fingers.

I've broken the keyboard into three sections to let you know what keys 
exactly to use to make the chords. Use the middle C as a reference.

  section 1                 Section2                 section3
CC#DEbEFF#GAbABbB        CC#DEbEFF#GAbABbB        CC#DEbEFF#GAbABbB
                                                  -middle C

Besides each note I will put a number so as to let you know where on the 
piano you hit the key.
i.e  So A2 would mean hit the A note in section 2.


Chords Used

F#-     (Bb1 + C#2 + F#2)
G-      (B1 + D2 + G2)
A-      (C#2 + E2 + A2)
G9-     (B1 + D2 + G2 + G3)
F#/G9-  (Bb1 + C#2 + F#2 + G3)
F#9-    (Bb1 + C#2 + F#2 + F#3)
F#m-    (C#2 + F#2 + A2)
E-      (B1 + E2 + Ab2)


Now the timing of the song is really tricky.  Thom hits all the chords at an 
even pace throughout the chord sequence, but at certain points he stops for 
a split second longer.  So after each chord I will put a * so as to let you 
know to hold the time signature a little longer
before moving on to the next chord.
