I wish i could figure it out... :\ This is really driving me crazy, there probably wont be tabs or chords until a week or so after the 24th.

I don't have the best ear, but this YouTube cover sounds right to me and he lists the chords: [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QuXVorVy2zU"]Coldplay - U.F.O (Acoustic) guitar cover - YouTube[/ame]

sounds right, but the pitch is incorrect. i know for a fact that the first chord in U.F.O is the first chord for Wedding Bells too. The high E is tuned into a D. I guess someone can try to work on the progression from that. Here is the chord:
d----o
b----8
g----0
d----9
a----10
e----x

That's my cover :)
There not the exact chords that Chris plays. He slides up and down the guitar I think the tuning is the difficult part to figure out. It's different variations of G and C for the verses.
Hope someone cracks this soon. I snapped a few strings trying to find the tuning :-/

In my version I also tuned the high e to d. Shoulda mentioned that on the video.

Hello!

here is my version in standard tuning :


Coldplay – U.F.O

D/G: 3x0032
C(add9): x32033
G: 320033

Intro: G(x75037) – C(x32032) - G - G

--------G---------------------C-----------G----D/G
Lord I don't know which way I am going
C-----------------D/G-----------G----D/G
Which way the river gonna flow
--------G-----------------C-----------------G----D/G
It just seems that upstream, I keep rowing
C-------------------------D/G----G
Still got such a long way to go
C-----------------D/G------------G----D/G
Still got such a long way to go

-------------G----------------C
Then that light, it's your eye
--Am
I know, I swear, we’ll find somewhere
------F----------------------------C
The streets are paved with gold

---------G--------------C
Bullets fly, split the sky
-----Am
But that's all right, sometimes, sunlight
----------F---------------------------C
Comes streaming through the holes

2x
G - C - G - D/G
Oooohhh
C - D/G - G - D/G
Ooooohh

End on G


I hope it will help! Maybe it's not very accurate (I guess the tuning is not "standard" in the song and I think there's two guitars, one that plays
the chords and the other that does the descents (the 7-5-3-2 on the last string) or maybe there's just one guitar and not the same chords at all :D ) but I think it sounds good.

Bye!

I am ear training, so pardon me for anything wrong.

I do all by progressions (don't know if that's how you call it in english)

All I hear is a single repetitive line that goes:

I (G) - V (D) - I (G)

Being that it is in G major.

This is very well done. Thanks. You should post more MX tunes if you get time

Hey! I've found out that the G(x75037) is much more easier that way: x75707 :D

By the way, here is my cover:

I think those chords are the same as Mylo Xyloto and A Hopeful Transmission
