Hello, Here's a tab for Ratchet by Bloc Party based on my guitar cover http://youtu.be/M3Wbh_1ApEU

Feel free to tweak the tab and alter as you hear fit. It's a fun song to play along to.
In the video I am playing using the Guitar Rig 4 software Pitch Pedal that I increase
to +1/6th of an octave (Max shift +2, 100% Wet, +1 Octave Pedal) in time with the song.
I have also included alternative tabs at the bottom so you can play the song even if
you don't have a pitch pedal.

I hope this helps! Thanks for watching, Enjoy :)

I like that you included an alternate version for those without a pitch pedal.
