In Limbo
IN LIMBO for guitar - 4/4, 2/4 time signature
transcribed from live the version in Arles, France - 13/06/00

I have tabbed out each riff and named them INTRO RIFF, VERSE RIFF and CHORUS
RIFF. To add a bit of structure, not that it's distinguishable (again), at
the end I have put a structure layout.

I think there are three guitars throughout. I don't know who plays the little
intro riff, probably thom, but when everyone comes in, Ed probably (maybe
Jonny) plays the main repeated riff. Jonny plays little delayed riffs here
and there.

KEY:
H - hammer on
P - pull off
x - muted scratch


INTRO RIFF - 4/4, 2/4:

Here is the little riff before it kicks in. It might
have a short delay on, that's why it was so damn hard
to tab..!

    1   +   2   +   3   +   4   +   1   +   2   +
e -------------------------------------------------
B --1-3-3-3-----1-3-3---3---3-3-3-3-5-3-1-3---3-3--
G ---H-----------H-------------------P---H---------
D -------------------------------------------------
A -------------------------------------------------
E -------------------------------------------------

    1   +   2   +   3   +   4   +   1   +   2   +
e ---------------------------------------------------
B --1-3-3-3-3-3-1-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-1-3-3-3---3-1-3--
G ---H-----------H-------------------H-----------H---
D ---------------------------------------------------
A ---------------------------------------------------
E ---------------------------------------------------

Then it all kicks in but this guitar still continues
quietly throughout the verses, varying a little.


VERSE RIFF - 4/4, 2/4:

This is the main riff, playing triplets:

    1        2        3        4        1        2   
e --------------------------------------------------------
B --------------------------------------------------------
G --------0-----------------------------------------------
D -----3-----------0--------0-----------------0--------0--
A --5-----------3--------2--------2--------2--------3-----
E -----------5--------0--------------0--3--------1--------

Jonny does delayed scratching a lot and sometimes plays
little delayed licks on the 4th beat:

    4   +           4   +
e -------       e -------
B -------       B --2-4-- - (discordant)
G --2-0--       G ---H---
D ---P---       D -------
A -------       A -------
E -------       E -------


CHORUS RIFF - 4/4:

Still playing triplets:

    1        2        3        4        1        2       (3)      (4)
e --------------------------------------------------
B --------------------------------------------------
G --------0--------0--------0--------0--------------
D -----1--------0--------5--------2-----2-----------
A --3--------1--------6--------3-----------3--2-----
E --------------------------------------------0--0--

Jonny does more delayed licks on the final 4th beat
of the above riff:

CHORUS ONE:
    4               4               4               4
e --0--         e --3--         e --3--         e --x--

G --0--         G -----         G -----         G --x--
D -----         D -----         D -----         D --x--
A -----         A -----         A -----         A --x--

E -----         E -----         E -----         E --x--

CHORUS THREE:
    4               4               4

The chorus riff to "in limbo" has an incorrect part. At
the end of the "chorus riff", it ends on what looks like an Eminor or a
C/B. It actually ends on a C. Here's how it should look:

    1        2        3        4        1        2  
e --------------------------------------------------
B --------------------------------------------------
G --------0--------0--------0--------0--------0--0--
D -----1--------0--------5--------2-----2-----2--2--
A --3--------1--------6--------3-----------3--3--3--
E --------------------------------------------0--0--


And the into to Everything in it's right place shouldn't have an F in
it, so it should be:

intro-C,C#,D#,C- 2x

And it should probably even lack the C at the end (kind of useless)

About the artist behind In Limbo:

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.
