Death On The Stairs Tab

   
its my first time submitting a tab so the lay out is probably really awkward,dont blame me!
it isnt perfect down to the last detail so play around with the rhythm and timing 
but thats all the fun with punk, you dont want it perfect. let that be a message to Bloc Party!
and dont try too hard, punk is casual guitar playing, do what you want! fiddle around 
change it to suit you!
any questions? wow930@hotmail.co.uk

now the lyrics kick in. i think guitar 1 just repeats the chords above, and i cant 
out what guitar2 does but it returns back to riff 1 after about four to eight bars. its all 
Bb major so you can have a go yourself.

when carl sings "oh baby please kill me..."
both guitars play the same riff but at different pitches.

when he sings "oh baby please kill me..." for the second time, play the same riff but 
and more frequent.
then they play around with the notes from riff 1, until eventually riff 1 is played 
guitar 1 just plays around with Bbmaj chord in the background.

solo
both guitars play the same.

for the outro play around with riff1 but in the higher pitch where the starting point is 
string fret 15. at the very end bring the pitch back down to the 3rd fret. have fun!
COME BACK PETE!
