TITLE: OPTIMISTIC
ALBUM: KID A
TRANSCRIBED BY: RICHARD CARTER



Ok. For this one you'll need to detune your low E string down to a D.

Intro:
       D7                D6                D

Repeat the second part of progression, replacing the open string hits between the C/D and D6 
with to muted hits on the D A D G strings. Then replace the open hits after the D6 with 3 more 
strums of the chord.


Main Riff:
           Dm          C/D                                   D

D--0--0--0-0---0--0-0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0-0-0---0--0--0--0----0--0--0--0--0-------



You must make sure to mute the D String and keep a steady relaxed feel through out this part 
of this song. Keep your third finger on the A string and switch between your first and second
on the G string for the change in chords. If you ever see Thom playing live he's never to 
worried about clinical accuracy so just go with what you think sounds good.


Chorus:
    D7                   Gadd9/D                Gmadd9/D  Gm/D   Dsus4

(The second part of the chorus is just a repeat of the main riff). Keep your second finger on 
the G string and switch between your first and third finger for the fret changes on the A 
string. The bridge for this song is very tricky. Try to keep a relaxed alternate picking going 
for both the chorus and the main riff.

The bridge for this song is very tricky. It has Johnny stricking mutted hits on the 
A D G strings whilst using a delay pedal.
