                             Uniform - Bloc Party
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------



This tab is based on the live performance on Channel 4 so the album version may differ slightly.

Tuning: Standard (EADGBe)

Intro/ First Verse

(Russel)
Uses an e-bow. I think these are the notes but I don't have an e-bow to test it.
You could tremelo pick these with plenty of reverb to get a similar result.

I have no idea what chords Kele plays in the chorus.





Second Verse

(Russel)
Pick these notes continuously. I'm not sure how many times each is picked.
Listen carefully and you'll work it out.


                           ("..More things to buy.")
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------|

                      ("..Love nothing.."    ("..Hair long..")
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-7-------9------10----12------14-----15-----17-----10-----12-----9---|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------|

Kele plays the same as in the first verse.





Second Chorus: Same as first chorus.

D|-----------------------------------------------------|
A|-----------------------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------------|


I don't have much of a clue what he's playing between
"I'm a martyr.." to "We have nothing at all to say".


Solo:
If you hit the muted G string while playing the high section on D
it sounds a bit more like Russel plays it (I think)

(Kele)
Plays nothing until:

B|---------|
G|-6\------|
D|-7\------|
A|-7\------|
E|-5\------|

 ("Oh! Oh! Oh!")
e|-------------|

G|-2---2---2\--|
D|-3---3---3\--|
A|-3---3---3\--|
E|-1---1---1\--

   ("So when're you..                                  ..Have another drink.")
    [Tremelo Pick...........................................................>]
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

A|-7-7--3-3--3-3--3-3--3-5------7-7--3-3--3--|
E|-5-5-------1-1--1-1-----------5-5-------1--|


Again, I don't know what the chords are between
"I'm a martyr.." to "We have nothing at all to say".


Outro:

Same as intro/ verses.
Finish on A.






There you go!
Hopefully that's easy enough to follow.

Great song, great band.
