Thanks Octakon! That's like the version that I'm (attempting) to play lol

And I HATE that stupid Bm, btw, it's such an annoying chord. I can never switch to it fast enough.

 

How long have you guy's that play guitar been playing?

I'm glad you did good :) I used to MC a lot of talent shows, and not nearly enough people did anything on the guitar, I think that sad. All the cute guitar players are famous and don't know I exist :cry: --well, except one that is ;)

dear mr octakon,

 

I realize you are some sort of "guitar playing extraordinare" but some are not. SOME people cannot play bm....so if someone says, "I can't play bm, I cant get there fast enough," your response should not be "Bm isn't that hard really" Thank you for listening...and have a wonderful day

 

Yours Truly,

Britt! :smug:

The thing with Coldplay is they use lots of open string chords. Playing Green Eyes in the regular A, Bm, and E chords is fine but I've tabbed Green Eyes which makes it sound really good. And if you listen to the acoustics in the song real closely, my tab matches it.

 

OK first you need to place a capo on the 2nd fret. Next tune the high 'e' string to the 5th fret on the guitar and in this case, it's the 3rd fret from where you've placed the capo. OK here's the chords (:

 

G Bm Am Am* C Fmaj7 Asus2 Cmaj7

e---0------0------0------0------0-----0----------0--------0

B---3------3------1------1------1-----1----------0--------0

G---4------4------2------0------0-----2----------2--------0

D---5------4------2------2------2-----3----------2--------2

A---5------X------0------0------3-----3----------0--------3

E---6------2-------0------0------0-----1----------0-------0

 

With a lot of the chords in this song, you have to use your thumb to hold down on the low 'e' which may be hard for beginners. Also you'll have to figure out all the timing on which chords to use, but these are the chords.

 

G Bm Am Am*

G Bm Am Am*

G Bm Am Am*
