Waiting For The 7:18
Bloc Party
A Weekend In The City

Tabbed By Jim Files (jimfiles@iprimus.com.au)

Forgive me if this tab is a bit hard to understand but it was tricky figure out and has 
few different little parts often overlapping
so i did my best. Nothing else out there for this song yet anyway so i hope its 
Cheers


Intro/Verse

This is gordy on the xylophone arranged for guitar, russel is also playing something in 
background with a few
effects on his guitar but i'm not quite sure what it is

E||--------------------------------------------------8-----------------------------------------------8------10-----|
B||--10------10------11------11------10------10-----------------8----10------10------11------11-----------------8--|
G||------10------10------10------10------10------10-----10--10-----------10------10------10------10-----10---------|
D||----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A||----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E||----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Chorus
Both kele and russ are using tremolo picking here i jist haven't shown every single note 
so tremolo pick
for the duration shown, listen to the cd and you should pick it up no worries

Kele

Bridge
This is the "Lets Drive To Brighton" bit, which is probably the hardest to tab, russell 
just playing
the same chorus riff above, while i'm not sure about kele so ive just put in the chords, 
maybe
it's just gordy playing these notes on the bass and kele is playing some really high 
but if he is
it's very hard to hear

|--------------------------|-------------------------------------------------------------|--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--|

There is one repeats of this bridge then this solo-ish bit by russell and kele

|----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------13--------15-------17------|
|----------------------------------------------8--10---8---11--10-----11--13---15-----------------------------------|
|--2---3---5---7----5--7--9---7---10---9---10-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Then the same guitar above goes straight into some more remolo picking

     TP_______________________________________________________________________________
E||--17----------------|--18-------17--15---|--13----------------|--17------15--------|
B||--------------------|--------------------|--------------------|--------------------|
G||--------------------|--------------------|--------------------|--------------------|
D||--------------------|--------------------|--------------------|--------------------|
A||--------------------|--------------------|--------------------|--------------------|
E||--------------------|--------------------|--------------------|--------------------|

while the other guitar plays russells same chorus riff again, then back into the bridge 
more then play this outro twice
while that same chorus riff is still going

In the intro, he uses a volume pedal to swell the volume.
You can do this pretty well just with the volume knob on the guitar as well.
I don't know what he's actually playing though.

I want to post or [tab]
