Bloc Party - Ion Square tab version 1

Okay, so here's my take on Ion Square. My first tab, so..take it easy on me.

So Kele plays this on a lower pitch with an Octave Pedal. He seems to be playing it low on the neck.E------------------------|A------------------------|D------------------------|G------------------------|B---8--10-8--10----------|E--------------10--12-10-|
Later in the song, Russell plays:E------------------------------|A------------------------------|D--------------------------9---|G----7-10--x18-then---7--10----|Plays that twice, fast.B---8----------------8---------|E------------------------------|
Then he goes back to..E---------|A---------|D---------|G----7-10-|B---8-----|E---------|
An easier way to play is this:E--------------0----0-|A-----1---1---1----1--|D----2---2---2----2---|G---3---3---3----3----|B---------------------|E---------------------|
Kele plays this for chorus.E--------------|A--------------|D--------------| However many times needed?..G--------------|B---1--3--0--0-|E----1-----3---|
And then Russell plays this during "I carry your heart.."E----------------------------------|A-------------------8--8--10--10---|D---10--10--10--10---10-10--10--10-|G-----10--10--10--10---------------|B----------------------------------|E----------------------------------|
Then this during "I carry it in, my heart."E----------------------------------|A-------------------8--8-----------|D---10--10--10--10---10-10--9--9---|G-----10--10--10--10---------10-10-|B----------------------------------|E----------------------------------|
After Kele goes back to what he played in the intro. Its his main riff throughout this song.
Then Russell plays:E--------------------|A------1----1----1---|D--------------------|G---2-3--2-3--2-3----| Hammer-on the 2 to the 3.B--------------------|E--------------------|
Then he plays:E-------------------------------------------------------------------|A---10--10--10--10--11--11--10--8--10--10--10--10--11--11--13--13---|D-----10--10--10--10--10--10--10-10--10--10--10--10--10--10--10--10-|G-------------------------------------------------------------------|B-------------------------------------------------------------------|E-------------------------------------------------------------------|
He keeps playing that till the 2nd Chorus, then..E-------------------------------|A-------------------------------|D--------------7-10--10--9--9---|G---10-10-10-10----10--10-10-10-|B-----8--8--8-------------------|E-------------------------------|
After that..E---13-12-------------------------------|A--------15-13--------------------------|D------------- Russ plays this about 15-| times.G---------------------------------------|B---------------------------------------|E---------------------------------------|
Then changes it up a bit to..E--------12-15-|A---13-15------|D--------------| He plays that till the "Ohhhs" Kele sings.G--------------|B--------------|E--------------|
In which case he plays..E---13-15-13-15-13-15-12-13---13-15-13-15-13-15-12-13-|A-----------------------------------------------------|D-----------------------------------------------------|G-----------------------------------------------------|B-----------------------------------------------------|E-----------------------------------------------------|
And Kele finishes off playing..E-------------------------|A-------------------------|D-------------------------|G-------------------------|B--------3-3-3-1-1-1-0-0--|E---1-1-1-------------3---|
And Russell finishes playing this.E---13-15-13-15-13-15-15-17--13-15-13-15-13-15-15-17--|A-----------------------------------------------------|D-----------------------------------------------------|G-----------------------------------------------------|B-----------------------------------------------------|E-----------------------------------------------------|
And there you have it folks. Enjoy.
