                             Helicopter-Bloc Party
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Prowell
Email: MILLSVILLE31@HOTMAIL.COM

Tuning:Standard

I got most of this from watching vidoes of the band playing on MTV.COM as well  
as taking a few sections from various other tabs of this song and tabbing the 
rest by ear.

Not 100% certain of course, but it sounds good to me.
