Correct Acoustic Guitar Tab


New Coldplayer
Apr 6, 2012
Hi all. After seeing several tabs which sounded nothing like the real song I decided to tab it as (I think) they play it live. My resources where the actual Mylo Xyloto sheet music (the table at the back doesn't give much away, just the actual tuning and capo position they play the song live in) and my ears. Sorry if it's not clear when the chords are played, the forum is stripping out all the spaces when I try and put in the right place above the lyrics.

I've just tabbed the acoustic guitar part in the second half of the song for now (as it's the main guitar), maybe someone else can do the 2 electric guitar parts behind it.

Timing: - 4/4

Strumming patterns: - D-DU-UDU for the first half, changing to DUDU-UDU from the first time he says the word 'plot'.

Capo: - 7th fret

Tuning: -EADGBD

A simple plot, but I know one day, good things are coming our way.
