Price of Gasoline
by Bloc Party (off the album "Silent Alarm", 2005)

Standard Tuning.


Surprised nobody's done this yet! The bass tab's been done perfectly, going to
attempt the guitar tab. It's played on two guitars. One of their hidden gems really.
Russell's in the left speaker and Kele's in the right, singing too.

The only part I'm not really sure about is the last chorus and the break before that.
In the break before it sounds like there's some sort of note being delayed I think
by Russel, and the chorus I'm just confused about who plays what. But it sounds like
what I tabbed... Anyway. Enjoy!


_____________________________________________________________________________
	INTRO[0:00]
_____________________________________________________________________________

In the intro, Russell and Kele both seem to play with some kind of delay/echo effect
on tremele picked notes.

[0:00]
(first 16 bars)

Russell
e|--------------------|
B|--------------------|
G|--------------------|
D|---#6#--------------|
A|--------------------|
E|--------------------|

[0:11]

Then the bass comes in and it changes slightly.

Russell
e|--------------------|--------------------|
B|--------------------|--------------------|
G|--------------------|--------------------|
D|-#6#----------------|-/#7#-/-#14#\#(13)#\| x4
A|--------------------|--------------------|
E|--------------------|--------------------|

[0:22]

Kele comes in over the top here, again with delay/echo effect.
Russell continues his riff.

_____________________________________________________________________________
	VERSE[0:34]
_____________________________________________________________________________

The major part of this is bass and drums. Look at the bass tab if you want that :),
the version on this website is perfect in my opinion.

Occasionally, the odd note delays and rings from Russell's guitar:


Russell
e|---21~--|--------|---19~--|
B|--------|---10~--|--------|
G|--------|--------|--------|
D|--------|--------|--------|
A|--------|--------|--------|
E|--------|--------|--------|
   [1:08]   [1:10]   [1:12]


_____________________________________________________________________________
	CHORUS[1:13]
_____________________________________________________________________________

The main part of the chorus is played 4 times, then finishes with the last part.

Kele
e|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|
B|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|
G|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|
D|-6-6-6-7-7-7-7-7-|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|
A|-----------------|-7-7-7-9-9-9-9-9-|-----------------|-6-6-6-7-7-7-7-7-|
E|-----------------|-----------------|-7-7-7-9-9-9-9-9-|-----------------| -\

Russell
e|-12--12--12--12--|-12--12--12--12--|-12--12--12--12--|-12--12--12--12--| -/   x4
B|-12--12--12--12--|-12--12--12--12--|-12--12--12--12--|-12--12--12--12--|
G|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|
D|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|
A|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|
E|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|


Then:

[1:36]
Kele
e|------|
B|------|
G|------|
D|-7-\--|
A|------|
E|------|


_____________________________________________________________________________
	VERSE[1:37]
_____________________________________________________________________________

Again there's mainly bass in here, I'll tab out Russell's fills.
I had a look at a video of them live and he seems to play it around this part
of the fretboard. It sounds like there's a backing keyboard to this on the album
playing the same notes.

_____________________________________________________________________________
	CHORUS[2:15]
_____________________________________________________________________________

Same as the first chorus.

_____________________________________________________________________________
	BREAK/SOLO[2:38]
_____________________________________________________________________________

Delay and echo effects on both guitars.

[2:49]

Really sorry but I have *no* idea what Russell plays here :( It sounds like
a mixture of tremelo picking and massive delay and echo, but I really can't
tell what notes he's playing let alone when :(.

VERSE

I've been driving
A mid-sized car
I never hurt anyone
(Is that a fact? Is that a fact? Is that a fact? Is that a fact?)
The price of gas
Keeps on rising
Nothing comes for free
(Make like a stone. Make like a plant. Make like a stone. Make like a plant.)
I can tell you
How this ends

CHORUS

We're gonna win this
We're gonna win this
We're gonna win this

VERSE

With spades and truncheons
Guns and trowels
That is how the
War will be won
(Just swat the fly, Just swat the fly, Just swat the fly, Just swat the fly)
Taking care of
Cars and bodies
Nothing ever comes for free
(The ghosts are here. The ghosts are here. Red white and blue. Red white and blue)
I can tell you
How this ends

CHORUS x2

We're gonna win this
We're gonna win this
We're gonna win this
We're gonna win
