2 frets=1 step =/= tone

 

step: interval between two consecutive scale degrees

 

tone is a whole different thing...

 

 

ricardo, espero que entiendas español, dado que eres de mejico...

 

la diferencia de notas entre 1 traste (o fret) y otro es siempre de 1/2 paso (o step).

 

Te daré un ejemplo, siendo lo mas claro posible pues no se cuanto sabes de musica y de la guitarra. Vamnos a dar por sentado que tenemos la guitarra con la afinación estandar EADGBe (Mi La Re Sol Si Mi).

 

 

la 3era cuerda tocada al aire (sin ningun dedo sobre el mastil), equivale a la nota Sol (G). Si presionas sobre el primer traste de esa cuerda y la tocas, la nota será un sol sostenido (G# o G sharp).

 

Como ves, ha subido solamente medio paso o step.

 

Espero que te haya servido. ;)

oh ya vi con el ejemplo me quedó muy claro... muchas gracias! y qué bueno que me dices el término de sharp por que no sabía como se decía sostenido en inglés :P

Gracias de nuevo

 

 

I consider sharps and flats "notes" so since Jonny normally plays the riff starting on the 12th fret, in this acoustic version, he starts on the 10th fret.

ok ok thanks now I fuly understand

Question about warning sign; when I play this on my electric guitar (and also on my acoustic) the 3rd string from under (G) just dominates the tune, going louder while I play the verse. Is this normal or do I have to use a special technique I don't know about?

Outro is pretty much right, here's the way the book shows it...

 

OUTRO:

Guitar 2 Plays this:

e|------------------------| and then

b|15--15----------15-15---|

g|14--12------12--14-12---|

d|-------14---------------|

a|------------------------|

E|------------------------|

and then

e|------------------------|

b|14--14----------14-14---|

g|14--12------12--14-12---|

d|-------14---------------|

a|------------------------|

E|------------------------|

 

 

The main riff is right with the exception of the open e string making the riff...:

 

e|--0....0--

b|--5....7--

and the verse intro as you requested looks something like this...

e|---------------------------------------|

b|---------------------------------------|

g|-----2-------------------------2-------|

d|--2---------------5----4----------4----| x2

a|--------0---3s5-----5------5-----------|

the dudes from the coldplay tribute band posted a tab, and from what I've seen live the solo seems fine

http://www.thecoldplaytribute.com/?mpf=frame

Lead Intro

e----------------------

b-5-----------5-------

g---7B9--------R7--

d----------------------

a----------------------

e----------------------

 

Verse:

 

arpegiate this chord

 

e-11-----------------

b-12----------------

g--------------------

d-12----------------

a--------------------

e--------------------

 

You see the world in black and white

No color or light

You think you'll never get it right

You're wrong, you might

The sky could fall, could fall on me

The parting of the sea

But you mean more, mean more to me

Than any color I can see

 

Chorus:

 

Lead riff:Intro

 

All you ever wanted was love

But you never look hard enough

It's never gonna give itself up

All you ever wanted to be

Living in perfect symmetry

But nothing is as down or as up as us

 

Interlude:

 

e-13-13--13--13--X4--9-9--9--9--9-9---11—-11--13-13--13--13--13-13--13--13-----

b-10-12--12--12-------8-7--8-10--8-7---10---12--10-12-12--12--10-12--12--12-------

g-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

d-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

a-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

e-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Verse:

 

You see the world in black and white

Not painted right

You see no meaning to your life

You should try

 

Chorus:

 

All you ever wanted was love

But you never looked hard enough

It's never going to give itself up

All you ever wanted to be

Living in perfect symmetry

Nothing is as down or as up

 

Don't you want to see it come soon

Floating in a big white balloon

Flying on your own silver spoon

Don't you want to see it come down

There for throwing your arms around

And say "you're not a moment too soon"

Outro:

'Cause I feel low

Yeah I feel low oh oh oh oh oh

But I feel low

Oh no
