Holocene's Coldplay Tabs/Chords

Recommended Posts

Taking inspiration from Kapone's tabs thread, here's a thread for Coldplay songs I've tabbed on guitar in my free time. I use audio/video as reference and the knowledge that Chris favours certain chord shapes on acoustic. I'll be adding/updating as I learn more.

Read the tabs upwards, with the last line being the 1st string. For example the following would be E Minor, G Major and C Major:

0β€”3β€”0
0β€”0β€”1
0β€”0β€”0
2β€”0β€”2
2β€”2β€”3
0β€”3β€”0

Ones with a '-h-' mean a hammer on and '-p-' mean pull off. Example the following would mean hammer on the 2nd fret then pull off to open:

xβ€”β€”β€”x
xβ€”β€”β€”x
0h2β€”2p0
xβ€”β€”β€”x
xβ€”β€”β€”x
xβ€”β€”β€”x

Ones with a '-/-' mean slide. Example, the following is saying to slide from the second fret to the forth fret and back again:

xβ€”β€”β€”x
xβ€”β€”β€”x
2/4β€”4/2
xβ€”β€”β€”x
xβ€”β€”β€”x
xβ€”β€”β€”x

The '-x-' mean to mute/not play that string. Example, with a D Major don't play the 5th and 6th strings:

2
3
2
0
x
x

For some chords with the 6th string played you can use your thumb to fret it. I find it more comfortable and Chris does this as well. Chords are relative to the capo (if there is one).

I want to be as accurate to the recordings/concerts as I can be, so if you have any corrections please feel free to share. Thanks.

Notes:

-The slide in the chorus sometimes is there, sometimes isn't. Just do what you like.

-IMO The strumming is the hardest part (no pun intended). He does this finger strum that's up with the flesh and then a flick downwards with the nail. It's feels like one fluid movement. Hard to describe.

-I personally use my index finger for the 6th string in this song. Try that if you're struggling with your thumb.

Haha, hint taken. Don't worry, I plan on doing most of the new album. I actually wanted to work on finishing COTW and start Old Friends + Church today but my string broke and the new ones haven't arrived yet. :(

Guns was hard to work out but is so much fun to play. If anybody posts a cover, please send me a link. I'd love to hear it.

Thank you! I was trying to work out Guns this past weekend. I will definitely post a cover at some point.

Β 

Was confused for a while with the mistake in the booklet (they incorrectly listed the capo position) but eventually I got it. I want to double check the picking pattern when I have time and come up with an alternative version that can be strummed, but for now that's it. Enjoy.

So 2020 has been a year huh? Due to this I haven't had much time/motivationΒ to even pick up my guitar. It wasΒ only last night whilst visiting some very niceΒ elderly neighbours that IΒ regained some drive toΒ finally restring my poor neglected instrument.

Anyways, I'll be jumping back into tabbing Coldplay songs. I also plan to re-format the original post too because, well, it looks s**tΒ (damn you good-looking website updates!)

After reformatting, I'll start with writing down the tab for theΒ Speed of Sound MXΒ tour acousticΒ ver. since that's where my heart is at rn.

Β 

See you soon πŸ™‚

I am so glad you are back tabbing again. I want to figure this tab out for Speed of Sound liveΒ as well!

Here’s one of the live video’s here:

I saw on another thread, someone tried to tab out what rhythm part Chris is playing but I don’t think it’s quite right.
Β 

LETS FIGURE THIS OUT!

Β 

from other thread:
This is what I came up with. Its in us against the world tuning.Β 

EADF#BE with capo on 3rd fret.Β 

The verses go as follows: 0.10.9.8.0.0. then to 13.15.15.0.0.0. for two times then 8.10.10.8.0.0.Β 

Every other time Chris throws in a 12.15.14.0.0.0. chord instead of the 13.15.15.0.0.0.Β 

The first part of the chorus goes as follows: 13.15.15.0.0.0. then to 0.5.5.0.0.0. then to 5.7.7.6.0.0.0. and 5.7.7.5.0.0.0.Β 

The second part of the chorus goes as follows: 13.15.15.0.0.0. then to 5.7.7.6.0.0. then to 8.10.10.8.0.0. and back to 13.15.15.0.0.0. for two times then 5.7.7.6.0.0. then back to 13.15.15.0.0.0. for two times to finish off.

Reformatted the tabs once again, hopefully it's easier to read. I'll find a way to make it collapsible like I had it pre-update forum.

Thanks everybody.

Hey, I just finished addingΒ the SOS tab. It'll take a bit to show up because a moderator needs to approve the editedΒ post. I hope you enjoy it and let me know if it doesn't sound right.
