Secrets  - Bloc Party

Another Weekend in The City

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Scotch59

Email: scotch59@gmail.com

Tuning: Standard EADGBe

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is a tab for the Lead Guitar part to "Secrets" off
"Another Weekend In The City"

I know this tab is NOT 100% Correct, especially with the 1st and 2d Verse. If any part 
doesn't sound right please post a correction
instead of a negative comment or a low rating, so I can fix the tab and make it 100% correct.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

NOTE: I did not tab the intro Myself, all Credit goes to "The Alchemist" from his 
tabbing of the intro to this song,

Which is here:   http://tabs.ultimate-guitar.com/b/bloc_party/secrets_intro_tab.htm




Intro:
-------

Played Twice.

1ST VERSE: (0:56 - 1:19)

CHORUS: (1:20 - 1:40)
----------------------

I found two ways of playing the Chorus..both sound good when playing with the song.

Use Heavy Delay when playing the Chorus part

1ST WAY. All notes tremolo picked

e|--------------------------|
B|--7---8-7--5--3-----5-----|
G|--------------------------|  X4
D|--------------------------|
A|--------------------------|
E|--------------------------|

2d way.. Also using tremolo picking (I prefer this way, it matches the melody much more)
e|----------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--7---5---3---5---7--5--3-----5--------7---5---3---5---7--8--7-----5--|
G|----------------------------------------------------------------------| X2
D|----------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|----------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|----------------------------------------------------------------------|




(1:40 - 2:03) Repeat Intro..




(2:04 - 2:18)
e|---------------------------|
B|--------------------7b-----|
G|---9b---------------9b-----|
D|---------------------------|
A|---------------------------|
E|---------------------------|




(2:27 - 2:49)  Repeat 1st Verse



CHORUS 2: (2:50 - 3:33)
--------------------------

Same as 1st chorus except twice as long, Also using Heavy Delay

e|--------------------------|
B|--7---8-7--5--3-----5-----|
G|--------------------------|  X8
D|--------------------------|
A|--------------------------|
E|--------------------------|

2d way.. Also using tremolo picking
e|----------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--7---5---3---5---7--5--3-----5--------7---5---3---5---7--8--7-----5--|
G|----------------------------------------------------------------------|

I forgot to add a bend on the 5th fret B string right before you slide down to the 14th fret e string. You are still tremolo picking as you bend the 5th fret

Pretty sure the last part of the solo goes like this:

e|---12--14----15--14--12--10--\\\--17----19----17--15--14--10--|
B|--------------------------------------------------------------|
