Nice initiative!

 

I hear the piano verse as

C#m | A (plus some alternative A)

 

If Jonny plays in standard tuning, I guess the solo goes like this:

 

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

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

G|-8b9b8-6-8b9---------6------|

D|-------------6-8b9-6---6----|

A|-------------------------9--|

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

I got the solo down as:

 

|--------------------------------------------

|--------------------------------------------

|----9p8-----9-----------------------------

|----------11--------9------11-------------

|-----------------11----11------9----------

|-------------------------------------9------

 

Its in C# whoevers posting the chords

 

I got them down as

 

Was a [C#min] cold and dark december,

from the rooftops i re[C#min/B]member there was [A]snow. [Aaug4] White Snow [A6]

[C#min]Clearly i remember,

from the windows they were[C#/B] watching, while we [A]froze. [Aaug4] Down below. [A6]

When the [A] futures ..... like a Carnival... [C#min] show, you'd better ride love

 

If you [A] love [G#min or E/G#] wont you [F#min] let me [C#] know

 

[C#]

 

And then its just a repetition of that

 

During the verse the guitar its doing this on the g and b strings

 

b-------------------14----------

g------------------16b18------

 

where you dont ply the 18 just bend the 16 till it sounds like the 14, it does it over and over again, and an overdubbed guitar hits a 9th fret C#min triad

 

The fuzz guitar but that he does in the midle of every verse etc goes...

 

|---------------------------------

|---------------------------------

|---------------------------------

|-- -(5)-(4)--(3)---(2)------------

|---------------------------------

|-----3---2----1-----0---------------

 

Can play the bracketed notes if you like.

 

And thats about it, ive only done this from a few listens, so its not perfect, and ill do it properly witht he right lyrics at some point!

Yeah that looks alittle better, I knew it was more of a pull off/hammer on style than bends during the solo....when I tabbed it I tabbed it down lower but the same pattern....I'm just way out of tune right now so I knew I wasn't in the right spot but the pattern is simple to come up with...

Violet Hill chords

 

Well guys this is my first post on this site so i wanna say hi to you all first.We tried find the chords for this song with my friend Manolya who plays the piano and guitar just like i do.Iits easier to figure out songs on piano so i thought of giving it a try and the thing i got is almost as same as yours... I dont think its correct but at least it may help us to figure it out together.

 

i think it goes like this

 

C#m..............................F#m7

was a long and dark... snow,white snow

C#m........................... F#m7

clearly i remember... froze,down below

F#m........................A........... B

when the future... Show... low

............ A.................F#m C#m

if you love.. .wont you let... know

 

for the ones who will try it on the guitar i think its easier to play F#m7 like A chord...just add the second fret on the 6th string...

Please lets work this song out together.Bye

that chord actually is C#min add 9, meaning you add a D# to it, not a B. Hope this helps.

 

I was going from the bassline, which im fairly certain in decending down to A, not ascending, cos you'd go C#, B, A in the bass, which im fairly certain is happening. Unless we're both wrong and we're just hearing a B chord lol

here is what i figured out (*.gp5 [Guitar Pro 5]) the bass (from 3rd note) in the 4th/5th timebar must set down one octave, but i downt know how to do it with gp5.

 

Here is my version in Guitar Pro 5.

 

Zip file contains:

.gp5, .mid.

And PDF for basstab.

 

There you can see that the song played in dropped D.

VIOLET HILL.

 

Not got any time to tab it out.

 

What I already can say is.

That it is played in:

Verse: Db - A and also Db - E - F#

 

Solo: Db - B - Eb

 

More later.

 

No offense towards your brilliant tabbing Stephan, but I think this song is played in Dbm or C#m not just Db, the song is definately played mostly in minor chords, the only major chords are played in the chorus from what I can hear
