Artist: Bloc Party
Title: Banquet
Album: Silent Alarm
tabbed by sred4 03/04/05

There's some other effects going on here beside the two guitars, but I just
tabbed those.  Also, I think there's some pedals being used with the octave
part in the bridge and the solo, but I'm not sure what.  Here's, what I think,
is the best tab of this song out there.

t=tremolo (fast) picking
1/4b=bend quarter note
B=bend full note
