                     Positive Tension - Bloc Party
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed By :cosmicsoul07

Tuning:EADG


This song was pretty easy to tab by ear, and not very difficult to play.
This is the main riff that plays throughout most of the song

G|------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|--3--3------1--3--1--3-----------------3--1--3--------------------------------|
E|--------3---------------------------------------------------------------------|

Just as a note, for guitar, when Gordon sings "run-run-run", these are the power chords played:

e|------------|------------|
B|------------|------------|
G|------------|------------|
D|----6-------|-----3------|
A|----6-------|-----3------|
E|----4-------|-----1------|

Around 2:34 the bass stops for a bit. Then it restarts:

G|------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-----3-3-3--------------------------------5-5-5-5-----------------------------|
E|------------3-3-3-----4-4-4----1-1-1-1----------------------------------------|

Then on the Solo:

G|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|--3-3-3-3----------------------------5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-3-3-3-3-----------------------|
E|----------3-3-3-3--4-4-4-4--1-1-1-1------------------------------------------------|

G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3--1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1--3-3-3-3----1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1----------|

G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|--------------------------------5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5----------------------------|
E|---3-3-3-3--1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1------------------------------------------------|

And that's it. Just do the intro riff 4 times at the end and you're done!

It's wrong in the main riff dude!
It is:
A|-3-3-1-3-1-3----1-3-1|
E|----3----------------|

Though i dont play the three on the E string beacuse it sounds better without!

From what i've seen of this live, i think Gordy plays the main riff on the E string. Same notes though, well done :)
