     POSITIVE TENSION - Bloc Party
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------


Tuning: Standard (EADG)

This is the main bass riff that runns through most of the song, listen to pick up the rhythm.

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

At 2:34 (as Kele sings 'the reckoning') The bass stops and rests for 8 lines. The bass 
comes back in with:


G|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-3-3-3----------------------5-5-5-5-----------------------------------------|
E|---------3-3-3---4-4-4--1-1-------------------------------------------------|


This riff is played 8 times until 3:22(Kele sings 'so f**king useless').

Then play the following (i cant be bothered to count the notes so just listen for the chord changes):

G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-3>>----------------------5---5------3>>--------1>>-3>>--------------------|
E|---------3>>---4>>-1>>-------------------3>>-4>>---------------------------|

Finnish with the main riff 4 more times.
