Alt-j – Breezeblocks tab ver. 3

This is my first tab. I used the audio files they put up for any producer to use to make
a remix, as well as some of their live performances. I am almost 100% sure this is
correct and THIS IS HOW THEY ACTUALLY PLAY IT.

****I don’t know proper tab notation for things like slapping the strings to mute so
I’ll just use an “s” where needed. Comment if you can help or just have something you think
is wrong so I can maybe fix it! Be sure to listen to the song to get the timing down.

Hope you guys like it!

****This is Joe’s (the singer) guitar part

Chorus: **IMPORTANT: he kind of bars this part so he will occasionally strum and hit theD AND A string on the same fret(so for example 3 on D AND A but the A is very soft).The times he does hit the A string it seems to be on accident so I won’t make a point of when it happens in the recording, just do what he does and let it happen when it happens!e|-------------------------------------------------------------------|B|-------------------------------------------------------------------|G|-------------------------------------------------------------------|D|----------------------------------x3-------------------------------|A|-------------------------------------------------------------------|D|-33333333777777770000000233333333-----3333333377777777000000223--3-|

(on this part you want to strum the D very hard but ease up a lot as you hit those other2 strings, so the & on the D is played very soft)**IMPORTANT: he does the same as before and bars them, occasionally hitting the A)e|----------------------------------------------------------------|B|----------------------------------------------------------------|G|----------------------------------------------------------------|D|-3333333377777777-----------------------------------------------|A|-3333333377777777-----------------------------------------------|D|-33333333777777770000000233333333-------------------------------|

****The last slide down to 0 is not actually part of Joe’s part, I personally play it to match the last note in the song, but THE ACTUALLY RECORDING FOR JOE’S PART DOES NOT HAVE THE LAST
