Got the Bends.
It's not fair sometimes when I try to figure out some guitar stuff and it ends up that the whole thing's in a unique tuning or played with a capo or played with an effect. This is what just happened when I was plucking out the intro to "My Iron Lung" only to research on YouTube and elsewhere that an octave pedal or some other pitch shifter was used so that you could just play it with mostly open strings.
Then I got to looking up live Radiohead videos, just to get me stoked up about the show in May. Check out Jonny doing something appropriate on "The Bends":
