Banquet
by Bloc Party (off the album "Silent Alarm", 2005)

Standard tuning (both guitars)

I've seen this tabbed a few times before and they all seem slightly wrong. This sounds 
perfect to me... criticism accepted :). Note that the best way to play this chords is to 
them just after they're played, to stop them ringing.
Kele's guitar is rhythm, in the right speaker, and Russell's guitar is lead, in the left.

[Verse]

(1:31)
 

Same as first verse.
As... pretty much everyone, I couldn't tab the apparently dubbed bit over this sorry :(. 
can barely hear it.


[Chorus]

(1:56)
 

At [2:14], there is a dubbed guitar:

e|-9-9-9----------6---|
B|-------9--6--9----9-|
G|--------------------|
D|--------------------|
A|--------------------|

The rest of the chorus is the same as the first, except the last bars the second time are instead:

[Final Verse/Solo]

The verse riff is played 4 times, then continuously over Russell's solo, finishing with Kele playing:

e|-----|
B|-----|
G|-----|
D|-----|
A|-8-\-|
E|-6-\-|


Here's the solo, played over Kele's backing verse chords. It sounds pretty right, I'm 
100% sure about one part of it though.

LYRICS


[Verse]

A heart of stone, a smoking gun
I can give you life, I can take it away
A heart of stone, a smoking gun
I'm working it out
Why'd you feel so underrated?
Why'd you feel so negated?


[Chorus]

Turning away from the light
Becoming adult
Turning into my soul
I wanted to bite not destroy
To feel her underneath
Turning into the light


[Verse]

She don't think straight
No no no, she don't think straight
She's got such a dirty mind and it never ever stops
And you don't taste like her and you never ever will
And we don't read the papers, we don't read the news
Heaven's never enough, we will never be fooled


[Chorus]


[Bridge]

And if you feel a little left behind
I will see you on the other side
And if you feel a little left behind
We will readily walk the other side (?)


[Verse/Solo]

Cos I'm on fire
I'm on fire when you come
Cos you know I'm on fire
Cos you know I'm on fire so stub me out
Cos I'm on fire...

Thanks for the vote and comment :)

Oh, at the beginning that's supposed to be "the best way to play this is to MUTE the chords after you play them", I accidently missed out that word :P.

Solid tab.


Great job, Kele's part is spot-on as far as I can tell. :D!
