Fake Plastic Trees Chords (ver 2) - Radiohead

Fake Plastic Trees Chords
Heya.  People have submitted this tabs before, and they basically have the right tab, 
but the sound isn't the same the actual song.  I'm positive this is right because in 
the song, the high E string is always left open.

Because the E string is left open, it changes the names of the chords used.  People 
think that it's just F#m, but when the string's open, it makes is a really long hard 
name that I don't know. :)

It's played like:
E:  0
B:  2
G:  2
D:  4
A:  4
E:  2

This seems hard to play at first, but you just have to play the 
bass E string with your thumb on it on F# (E: 2 in the tab) and then stretch your 
hand to fit on the A,D,G and B strings.  I don't know the proper name, so I'll just 
call it F#m? for now. Also in the little bridge part of the song, the tune is A, Bm, 
but Bm has changed to:

E:  0
B:  3
G:  4
D:  4
A:  2
E:  x

I'll call it Bm? as well, cause I don't know the name.
Sorry about all the babbling, but the chords need to be played that way to sound 
right.  If you have any comments, then my user name for UG is WellWellMrBond.  
Because they are updating the server at the moment, it won't let me sign in.  
The chords may sound wrong by themselves, but just play them along with the song. 
Anycrap, enjoy!

A      x,0,2,2,2,0
F#m?   2,4,4,2,2,0
Dsus4  x,x,0,2,3,0
Bm?    x,2,4,4,3,0

A                            F#m?
  Her green plastic watering can
                         E      Dsus4
  For her fake chinese rubber plant
            A       Dsus4
  In fake plastic earth
 A                                 F#m ? 
  That she bought from a rubber man
                       E      Dsus4
  In a town full of rubber plants
         A         Dsus4
  To get rid of itself

Bm?        A
  It wears her out   (4x)

She lives with a broken man
  A cracked polysterene man
  Who just crumbles and burns
  He used to do surgery
  For girls in the eighties
  But gravity always wins and

It wears him out   (4x)

She looks like the real thing
  She tastes like the real thing
  My fake plastic love

But I can't help the feeling
  I could blow through the ceiling
  If I just turn and run
  It wears me out   (4x)

  If I could be what you wanted
  If I could be what you wanted   
  All the time

PS - if you wanted to get technical when you play the F#m? chord, it's played like this.

E ---0--
B ---2--
G ---2--
D ---4--
A ---4--
E -0-2--

It sounds like it's just the bass guitar kicking in, and it is later in the song, 
but in the beginning when it's just the acoustic, it can be heard. I'm just being 
picky, but that's how it's played in the song. Cheers :)

About the artist behind Fake Plastic Trees Chords:

Radiohead are an English alternative rock band from Oxfordshire. The band is composed of Thom Yorke (lead vocals, rhythm guitar, piano, electronics), Jonny Greenwood (lead guitar, other instruments), Ed O'Brien (guitar, backing vocals), Colin Greenwood (bass guitar, synthesisers) and Phil Selway (drums, percussion). Radiohead have released seven albums and have sold over 23 million records throughout their career.[1]

Radiohead released their first single, "Creep", in 1992, and their debut album, Pablo Honey, in 1993. Though initially unsuccessful, "Creep" was a worldwide hit when reissued a year later. Radiohead's popularity in the United Kingdom increased with the release of their second album, The Bends (1995). The band's textured guitar atmospheres and Yorke's falsetto singing were warmly received by critics and fans. With the release of OK Computer (1997), Radiohead were propelled to greater fame worldwide. Featuring an expansive sound and themes of alienation from the modern world, OK Computer has often been acclaimed as a landmark record of the 1990s.

The release of Kid A (2000) and Amnesiac (2001) saw Radiohead reach their peak popularity, although the albums divided critical opinion. This period marked a change in Radiohead's musical style, with their incorporation of avant-garde electronic music, Krautrock and jazz influences. Hail to the Thief (2003), Radiohead's sixth album, blended styles from throughout the band's career, mixing guitar-driven rock, electronic influences and contemporary lyrics. Radiohead subsequently left their record label, EMI, and released their seventh album, In Rainbows (2007), through their own website as a digital download for which customers selected their own price.
