Positive Tension by Bloc Party

Tab by Amplifioneer

PLEASE READ:
This is my first attempt at making a tab. It's not easy to write down the beat in tabs, 
listen to the song as reference, this
tab give you a good idea on how it goes. Hopefully better than those versions 
that are already here.

INTRO (and main riff) is like this, with very slight variations, but it works perfectly as it is:

G|----------------------------|----------------------------|
D|----------------------------|----------------------------|
A|----------------------------|----------------------------|
E|-8---8---8--6--8--6--8------|-8-6-8-6-8--8---8--6-8-6-8--|

G|----------------------------|----------------------------|
D|----------------------------|----------------------------|
A|----------------------------|----------------------------|
E|-6-8-6-8---8---8-6-8-6-8--8-|-6-8-6-8--8-8-8-8--6-8--6-8-|

Variation such as:

G|-----------------------------------|
D|-----------------------------------|
A|-----------------------------------|
E|88868-6-8---8---8-6-8-6-8--8-------|

At some point with this part added to the end of the riff:

G|--------------------------------|
D|--------------------------------|
A|--------------------------------|
E|-----------------------888-6-/11|


CHORUS ("Run Run Run...") 		("And you cannot run...")

G|------------------------------------|-------------------------|
D|------------------------------------|-------------------------|
A|------------------------------------|-------------------------|
E|--4--4-4-4-4-4-4----1--1-1-1-1-1-1--|-8-8-8-6-8-6-888-6-/11---|

End of chorus, same as main riff (after "The Reckoning...")
G|----------------------------------|--------------------------------|
D|----------------------------------|--------------------------------|
A|----------------------------------|--------------------------------|
E|-8---8---8--6--8--6--8----------|-8-6-8-6-8--8---8--6-8-6-8--------|

VERSE, main riff as in intro,

CHORUS

BREAK:

Drums and Guitar only, until:

("Why d'ya have to have go so hysterical?")


G|------------|----------------------------------------|
D|------------|----------------------------------------|
A|------------|----------------------------------------|
E|3-3-10-10-8-|--8--8---3--3---4--4---1--1--10-10-10-10|

G|------------------------------------|		\
D|------------------------------------|	_____These bars repeat
A|------------------------------------|
E|--8--8---3--3---4--4---1--1--9-9-9-9|

Last part of it you skip the last notes:

G|--------------------------------------|
D|--------------------------------------|
A|--------------------------------------|
E|--8--8---3--3---4--4.-----------------|
				("So f****ng useless!")

On goes, during the guitar solo:

G|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-8-8-8-8-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-|

G|-------------|
D|-------------|
A|*small pause*|
E|-------------|

G|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-8-8-8-8-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-|

G|--------------------------------|
