Helicopter Acoustic – Bloc Party
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Brad Bolman
Email: Mageball24@kc.rr.com

Tuning: Standard

Note: I haven’t ever seen Bloc Party do this song acoustic, but since I
Play the acoustic guitar more than the electric, I figured I’d tab it out
In chords.
