Radiohead write, and play some of the best songs around. And now I can play them too. When you first look at all the chords and patterns and things, you may be staggered, but within a few days, to a week maybe, you may have mastered them. It is true though, that some of you are undoubtably better guitarists than others, and so will pick this up nicely. But for those who have only just got into guitar, or have been playing for less than a year, don't try this book yet, it will be frustrating for you, and a waste of time. Before you buy this book, I reccomend you try THE BENDS tableture first. It is simpler (but still challenging), and you will probably have a better chance of success. But for those who are fairly skilled guitarists, it will be worthwhile, and great fun.

If you're ready for something a bit more challenging in your guitar playing and love this album then you should definitely buy this songbook. Some songs you will be able to play almost straight away, others need a lot more work, but they will bring your playing techniques along immensely. You'll get more out of this if you have both an electric and an acoustic guitar, and if you have a pitch shifter...well, rejoice. With at least three guitar parts on some tracks you'll have plenty to get your teeth into.'The Bends' in the same series is just as satisfying and probably alittle bit easier.

If you are a Radiohead fan, then you NEED this book. Similarly, if you think you're pretty good at the guitar, then you also need this as the songs are extremely tricky to master, especially if you want to get them paerfect. I have had hours of time over song number two, Paranoid Android, and have still not mastered it, although all my friends say it sounds great. If you are a perfectionist seeking true authenticity, then buy this.

I've had this songbook for a while now and can now judge it's contents against other songbooks.
This really is a fantastic way of recreating the songs from O.K Computer. Not only is it 100% spot-on in accuracy it also has chord boxes which helps reading the chords much easier. Against other song books, such as the one for Hail to the Thief, this is the only accurate one I have come across. The others are wildly of the mark in terms of accuracy. Ignore the review which says only play 4 chord Oasis songs. Seems to me he doesn't practice long enough or he prefer's listening to boring, stale music.
This relly is a great songbook!! Buy it!!!

This is a collection of probably the most accurate ok computer tabs I have ever seen. They dont miss a single note, and are very thorough. However, there is one shame, and one consideration which must be taken into account before buying this book. The shame is that the book doesn't come with a cd of backing music to play along to. Every tab book should have one of those. The consideration is that all the tabs can be found at various places on the internet for free, though they are mostly of poorer quality. That said, if you are moderatley good at guitar, take it very seriously, and are a big fan of radiohead and this album, then this is an extremely good buy for you.

The overwhelming and startling problem with this book is that it's just too accurate. Take my advice radiohead fans, and forget all about it. Chances are that you are (like me) a ten-thumb, tone-deaf talentless noise polluter (and I apologise if you're not) and (again, like me) think that you can play the guitar like a pro. This book will, in this case, ruin your hopes and dreams, destroy all the respect and dignity that you'd built up, and severely damage your guitar as you hack desperately at the complicated chord patterns. This reason for this is, purely and simply, that it's too darn complicated. Trust me. Stick to 4-chord oasis songs and be happy. Either that, or ditch your guitar and run. Either way, don't buy the book. You'll find easier versions of the songs that sound just as good somewhere on the internet.
