Idioteque
Radiohead - Idioteque; Kid A - Chords

Hey, I've two versions of the song here (the main keyboard part):
The first (the better-sounding one) is from a fella on YouTube in alternate tuning. 
The second is my less accurate version that you can play in standard, 
and is a bit easier on the fingers if you don't have the stretch!

In both versions, muting the correct strings is important to get the right sound

You should be able to get the rhythm down by listening. 
You've got to hang on the final chord in the progression for a bit longer.

Comments etc welcome!

Version 1: Tim Cox -- the best one, especially if solo.
Tuning: Eb G D G B E

D#maj7/G :   x 0 0 3 4 x

Gmin7:       x 0 0 7 6 6

D#maj9:      0(8)8 x 6 10 -- If you don't play the (8), mute the string!

Version 2: Jack (me)
-- Not as accurate but might do if you're just going rough and ready.
Tuning: E A D G B E (Standard)

Chords:

D#maj7/G :       3 5 5 3 4 3

D#sus2maj7(/G): (3)x 1 3 3(1)

A#/D:          (10)x 0 10 11 10  -- written as "D#maj9"

to save writing the

About the artist behind Idioteque:

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.
