He's just playing chords from the song. Asus2, Em7, D played open during the verse. The Chorus is G, A, Bm7 (just Bm in this version I think) x2 then G, Bm, D, G...G, Bm, F#m, G. They show him playing Bm at the 7th fret, but the end chords seem to be open.

Not sure if this has been discussed in this thread (46 pages is a lot to sift through), but is there a way we could get the tab all in one organized place, like maybe the Coldplay wiki page? I'm not sure if there's copyright issues or not, but it would be so great to have this wealth of knowledge well organized in one place.

 

I'd be willing to help anyway I could if its at all possible.

 

Cheers,

Brian

heyah, i'd need the Lead Guitar Solo after the chorus and generally the part after the chorus (end bit...) of A Rush Of Blood To The Head from live 2003

rest is pretty easy i suppose (at least i sound extremely close)

 

and of course the lead guitar for green eyes

For Swallowed in the sea:

 

the tabs sugested by princesanji sound great^^ Thanks!

 

but the interlude i think it goes like this:

 

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

B---------------------------------------------------|

G---------------------------------------------------|

D-11-11-11--6--2-2-2--6--9-9-9--6--4-4-4-|

A-11-11-11--6--2-2-2--6--9-9-9--6--4-4-4-|

E--9--9---9---4--0-0-0--4--7-7-7--4--2-2-2-|

 

sorry, no! frankly, it's hard to seperate, but you mixed the guitar with the bass line! not bad though.

if you'd like to play the bassline with the guitar, then do the powerchords over the e string like the following:

E|-2-2-2-4-5-5-5-4-0-0-0-4-7-7-7-4 repeat 3 times then

.........

E|-2-2-2-4-5-5-5-4-0-0-0-4-7~-7~ (let the last 2 7-powerchords ring, each for the length of 2 strokes before - i suppose these were 8th notes, so the last ones are 4th)

 

aah, whatever :D

Sorry if this is really old..but can someone help me out with the chorus? I still haven't "trained" my ears and honestly I can't hear the acoustic guitar play behind the electric guitar..

 

Actually, I'm not even sure how the strumming or which chords Chris plays when the electric takes over.

 

If someone could make a video or something with these chords, that'd be great.

 

Thanks in advance if any help is given :)

 

Edit: Oh yeah, even if this is for the acoustic version of the song, I'm sure he plays it the same in the electric version...I think hehe
