# What is R4DI0H34D saying?

An organistion named R4DI0H34D has developed an new encryption system codenamed G.

Previous encryption methods include V0C4l5 created by encryptor codenamed Y0RK3.

Here is some encrypted text we found, can you crack the cipher?

It may be easier to see in text:

AADDDEEEGG
1312312313
2222
AABDDDEEEeG
13312312333
AABBDDDEEEeeeGGG
1313123123123123
1312312313
ABBBBDDDEEEEGG
41234124123414


What does the text say?

(Not part of the puzzle)

I have tried to make this cipher as original as I can, so have fun and good luck!

You don't need to know about Radiohead songs to solve this puzzle - not the song notes or anything, It's mostly a theme, so you can solve it without knowledge of Radiohead.

• Is the repetition of "tried to make" part of the puzzle? ~_^ $\qquad$

• Just a thought...are the papers in the right order?? Feb 1, 2017 at 19:39

Here's how I got that answer:

The letters are the strings on a standard-tuned 6-string guitar, and the numbers are frets on those strings. If you map out these frets on chord charts, they make upside-down, capital letters. The R actually looks like a P, but I'm pretty sure it's Airbag since that's the title of a Radiohead song.

Step 1:

Draw the shapes in reverse order, so that when you flip it, it makes sense.

Step 2:

Flip it and connect the dots.

• You are really close, just check your squares and try rotating the grid a bit more. Feb 2, 2017 at 8:12
• Ah, I made a mistake. I edited my answer :) Feb 2, 2017 at 8:57
• Ah, you got me... and I was so close... I just couldn't read the letters properly... I was getting "AIP8A_"... the last symbol made no sense to me no matter what way I turned it. Feb 2, 2017 at 9:02

• "The R actually looks like a P", I think you made a little mistake there BTW Feb 2, 2017 at 21:14

Partial

All the hints are simple l33t code.
