                             BLUE BLOOD - Foals
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: DaveS

Tuning: Standard

Loving the new album...

Just a heads up...

They’re using a load of loops on this track (and on the whole of TLF in general) but 
the two guitars play as best as I can make out.

Guitar 1 (LEFT)
Intro (up to 0.48)
e|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-14~-14~-14~-14~-14~-14~-14~-14~----------------------------------------|
D|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------------------------|

(up to 2.09)
e|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-14-14-14-12-14-14-14-12------------------------------------------------|
G|-14-14-14-14-14-14-14-14------------------------------------------------|
D|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Chorus line
e|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|----14-1414-16-14------------14-1414-16-14------------------------------|
D|-18---------------14-16---18---------------14-16------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------------------------|

e|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------17-----------------------17------------------------------|
G|----14-1414-16---------------14-1414-16---------------------------------|
D|-18---------------14-16---18---------------14-16------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Then back to
e|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-14-14-14-12-14-14-14-12------------------------------------------------|
G|-14-14-14-14-14-14-14-14------------------------------------------------|
D|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|----------------------------------------------------------etc-----------|

Repeat chorus line

During the bridge part, Guitar 1 rests until 3.22, then
(its slightly muted so listen out for it)
e|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------17-------------------17----------------17----------------------|
G|-16-1616----1616-1414-16-1616----1616-1414-1616-------------------------|
D|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------------------------|

That loop actually continues throughout the next part.

At 3.37, with lots of effects (delay, reverb... give it everything you got...)
e|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-171717171717171717171717171717171717171717171717171717171717171717-----|
G|-161616161616161616161616161616161616161616161616161616161616161616-----|
D|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Then back to the chorus line at 4.21

Then finally back to this at 4.35
e|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-14~-14~-14~-14~-14~-14~-14~-14~----------------------------------------|
D|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Guitar 2 (RIGHT)
Intro – listen for the timing, each time the notes are played following guitar 1
e|---------------------------------14--------------12---------------------|
B|-17--14--14--14--12--14--14--14------14--14--14-------------------------|
G|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------------------------|

e|---------------------------------------------12-------------------------|
B|-14--14--14--12--14--14--14--12--14--14--14------14--14--14--12---------|
G|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------------------------|

e|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-14--14--14--14---------------------------------------------------------|
G|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Then at 0.48 it changes, so it plays the same notes as Guitar 1, and extra ones on top.
e|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-------------12--------------14-----------------------------------------|
G|-14--14--14------14--14--14------14--14--14--14--14--14--14-------------|
D|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------------------------|

e|-----14------14------14------17------14------14------14------12---------|
B|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-14------14------14------14------14------14------14------14-------------|
D|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------------------------|

e|-----14------14------14------17------14------14------14-----------------|
B|-------------------------------------------------------------12---------|
G|-14------14------14------14------14------14------14------14-------------|
D|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Now its back to the original timing, playing each note after Guitar 1
e|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-10--10--10--10--12-----------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------11--11--11--13-------------------------------------|
D|-------------------------------------9--9--9--9-------------------------|
A|-------------------------------------------------9--9--9--9-------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Drums enter here for the verse. Again, the timing is quite hard to explain, so listen 
for it.
e|----------------------------------171717-14-----------------------------|
B|-19-x-19-191919---191919-x-19-19----------------------------------------|
G|----x--------------------x----------------------------------------------|
D|-16-x-16-161616---161616-x-16-16----------------------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------------------------|

e|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-19-x-19-191919---191919-x-19-19--171717-14-----------------------------|
G|----x--------------------x----------------------------------------------|
D|-16-x-16-161616---161616-x-16-16----------------------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Chorus line
e|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|----14-1414-16-14------------14-1414-16-14------------------------------|
D|-18---------------14-16---18---------------14-16------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------------------------|

e|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------17-----------------------17------------------------------|
G|----14-1414-16---------------14-1414-16---------------------------------|
D|-18---------------14-16---18---------------14-16------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Back to verse, then chorus line.

Bridge
e|----------14----------14----------14----------14----------14------------|
B|-------14----------14----------14----------14----------14---------------|
G|-14h16-------14h16-------14h16-------14h16-------14h16------------------|
D|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------------------------|

This next part is... interesting. Its so fast that it might be a sped up loop, in which 
you own a loop station, is impossible to do. But here’s a couple of other ways you can try:

Almost sweep picking
e|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|----------14-17----------14-17----------14-17----------14-17------------|
G|-------14-------------14-------------14-------------14------------------|
D|-14h16----------14h16----------14h16----------14h16---------------------|
A|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------------------etc---|

Or tapping? (Notes in brackets, tap with right hand)

e|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|------------14-(17)------------14-(17)----------------------------------|
G|---------14-----------------14------------------------------------------|
D|-14-(16)------------14-(16)---------------------------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Eventually back to chorus line.

Final part
e|---------------------12-------------------------------------------------|
B|-12--------------------------------------------------14--------------12-|
G|-----14--14--14--14------14--14--14--12--14--14--14------14--14--14-----|
D|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Eventually Guitar 2 fades away leaving just Guitar 1.

And thats it :) if anyone’s got any corrections or suggestions, feel free

Enjoy!
