Blogging is fun, but it’s totally cutthroat.  You’re essentially in a race of ideas with everyone else in your niche.  If a guitarist uploads a video to YouTube first, he tends to get the most hits.  It doesn’t matter if your rendition might be better —  if your late, you won’t get as many hits as the first guy.  This is because people assume that the top page rank is given to better material, but it’s actually nothing more than a self-fulfilling prophecy (in some cases).

Thus, the blogging culture is: its better to be first then better.

However, after almost 2 years, I’m totally burned out with the blog race and I feel that my traffic is high enough that I can take more liberties with old material — regardless if a bazillion guitar players have already posted their versions on YouTube.

My first New Years resolution is simple: more Radiohead.

Everything In Its Right Place is still far ahead of its time even 12 years after the release of KID A.  Used in the opening scene of Vanilla Sky, I can’t decide what I like more: the song, or Tom Cruise’s 1962 Ferrari 250.

How to play Everything In Its Right Place for classical guitar:

The chord shapes are easy, and I’m essentially just matching the fingers of my right hand to the strings and plucking (or pinching) the strings. However, you could strum the chords with your thumb or with a pick if that’s your preference.

Enjoy, the guitar tab is available below:

Everything In Its Right Place is in standard tuning with a capo on the 5th fret.
