                Storm & Stress (Acoustic) - Bloc Party
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Not a Bloc party fan at all... But this is a lovely song.
I have doubts over wheter the strumming part is bang on -
in fact, I'm pretty sure it isn't - but it sounds damn close.

The other tab here has this down as being played by two guitars, 
but I'm not convinced that's actually the case (I may very well
be wrong however :D). Either way, this allows you to play it
by yourself & sound pretty close to the recording.

Enjoy.

Chords:
A                [x02220]
Asus2         [x02200]
Asus2/F#    [2x2200]
A/F#           [2x0220] (fingering for the chorus) 
Dmaj7sus2 [xx0220] (No idea if that's it's actual name)
Dsus2         [xx0230]
                                
Tuned half a step down.

Asus2          Asus2/F#

A new fight for a last rite
A new fight for a last rite

You're the life of the party
You're the life of the party,
You make my world spin around

no it's definitely one guitar, it's the strumming pattern in the chorus that gets me messed up every time tho-- there's many different ways to play it cuz it's not right anyway, but either way i like
