Optional Piano Chords for Fix You


Recommended Posts

Hey guys,


I spend a lot of time trying to figure out how Chris plays things live on my piano. I found a chord I think he uses live A LOT when playing Fix You, which isn't necessarily apart of the original song itself.


I don't normally make these types of threads and I never have before but figured for others it might be helpful.


The normal way I play it is with the familiar chord of


G, A#, D#

G, A#, D, D#


However, at the end of for instance


"When you try your best but you don't succeed."


Instead of playing the normal G, A#, D, D#, you can play instead this chord:

G#, A#, D, D#. It's simply moving up from G to G#, while playing B flat on the base, but it makes a world of difference. Throw a few of these in throughout the song and it sounds great.


sometimes I play simply a G# instead of the actual chord (with a b flat on the base), which can work as well. Sometimes simply a G, A#, D#, G (octave) as well.


There are a lot of different variations one can do with the chords, and I just thought I'd share a few that I've come across.


Hope this is helpful!
