REQUIRES CAPO
Capo On 2nd Fret

Bombay Bicycle Club is straight up my favourite band. After hearing Emergency
Contraception Blues for the first
time, I was hooked in, and continued to listen to each track on each of their albums.
This song has become a legacy for Bombay Bicycle Club, this 1:26 wonder is the song that
die-hard fans dream of hearing live. If they begin to play The Giantess live, be
prepared for the epic Emergency Contraception Blues finale. Moving on - I've seen the 
two other
tabs for this track on here, and I'm afraid they're incorrect. So, without further ado
and some long and hard listening to the track, I present you with the correct tabs, for
Emergency Contraception Blues. Enjoy!

(Capo On 2nd Fret)

/ = Slide, or Hammer on. (In the track they slide, but hammer-ons works just as well.)

Repeat this riff throughout. Listen to the track for strumming pattern and rhythm. Start
off in cleans, then switch to distortion when the drums kick in - (listen to the track
for this).

Lead Guitar - (Played with what I believe is a delay pedal)

Capo 2nd Fret - (Note: this part is not normally played live by either of the
guitarists, the sound engineer normally plays this part pre-recorded. You can play it if
you want
to, though.)
