U.F.O. chords?

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 :-/

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.
