Charlie17 Posted August 3, 2015 Share Posted August 3, 2015 This one was requested. I was glad because I love the song. At that last second i worked out what I imagine is the actual tuning used. The original song is in the key of Amaj roughly. The chords are at least. Chris Martin chooses some interesting notes vocally on occasion in the song. I played this cover a full step down in Gmaj. But that aside, if I were playing the original key, I had been playing it in standard tuning and just let the B and high E ring open the whole time. But it occurred to me to tune the second string up a full step. It makes all the chords much more colorful in coldplayish voicings (6/9 chords, min9 chords etc.) Cheers, Charlie (maybe someone can help my intellectually disabled self embed the video :) ) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
