  1. I would love it for the Motorola Photon/Electify http://www.geeky-gadgets.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/motorola-photon-4G_1.jpg
  2. Wow, I never thought there could be a ticket selling site worse than Ticketmaster, but Live Nation sure has done it. $6 parking fee and an incredibly high ticket fee. Just ridiculous. I go to Alpine yearly for Dave Matthews Band shows and there's never a fee for parking, ever.
  3. [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jkMGf2_NKvs]YouTube - Coldplay-The Scientist (Acoustic)[/ame] Does anyone have tabs for what Chris is playing here? The tabs that are linked don't see right and the only other way I've seen The Scientist tabbed out is with a capo. I want to play it like Chris is playing it there.
  4. What do you think would be better for the music I listed? I know Jonny plays Tele's and The Edge plays both. But what about Oasis and Kravitz? Would a Tele still fit good into their type of music?
  5. Jaguars are a bit out of my price range unfortunately. I am looking at getting just a Standard Strat or a Standard Tele but am really stuck on which one to get.
  6. What's the difference between the two and which should I get? I'd be playing mostly stuff like Lenny Kravitz, Oasis and Coldplay. Maybe some U2 as well.
  7. Awesome! Thanks for the tip. I've definitely tried using my thumb before, but it's really hard for me to wrap it around and be able to push down on the 6th string. It must take time and practice to get your thumb flexible enough, lol.
  8. I've been looking for Coldplay-type clothes still, haven't had that much success. I've found that Express has some really cool designed t-shirts, which I really like, so I go there and I've found that Gap and Old Navy have some plain looks at well that vaguely reflect Coldplay's style.
  9. Take this one from Yellow for an example: 0-----0 0-----0 8-----9 7-----7 9-----9 7-----7 Verse 0------0------0 0------2------0 8------3------1 7------4------0 9------4------2 7------2------0 The first chord there just seem incredibly odd to me. Going down the strings, I play it like this: Index, Pinky, Middle, Ring. That's just a really weird fingering to me. And the chord after that I have no idea how to even play it. The 7, 9, 7, 9 one. And under the verse, for the 2, 4, 4, 3, 2 bar chord, how are you supposed to play that as a bar and leave the bottom string open?
  10. How do you finger the chords of some of these songs? Some are just so confusing to me. Like, I can play some Dave Matthews songs, and he's a lot more complicated to play than Coldplay, yet, I can get the fingering down for a lot of these Coldplay songs.
  11. Alright, so I, like others have noticed that with Coldplay you have to use your thumb a lot. Does anyone have any advice on how to do that? I just cannot get my fretting hand situated to where I can play most of these chords with adding the thumb. My thumb like isn't flexible enough.
  12. I'll be at Alpine Valley on August 25th and 26th. Should be a hell of a time. I love DMB.
  13. When Jonny plays the riff in Fix You, is he muting other strings? I've watched a ton of videos of Fix You and it always looks like Jonny has other fingers on the fretboard and is doing something else. I always just play it with one finger while plucking the B string. e----------------------------------------------------------------------------| B--4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4/11-11-11-11\4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4/11-11-11-11\--| G----------------------------------------------------------------------------| D----------------------------------------------------------------------------| A----------------------------------------------------------------------------| E----------------------------------------------------------------------------| e---------------------------------------------------------------------------| B--4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4/11-11-11-11/4-4-4\3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3--| G---------------------------------------------------------------------------| D---------------------------------------------------------------------------| A---------------------------------------------------------------------------| E---------------------------------------------------------------------------| I just play that with one finger, but it always looks like Jonny is doing something more. Anyone have anything to say about that?
  14. Sort of an odd topic, I know, but, I'm looking to really just start over on my wardrobe. I have stuff that I used to like and used to wear, but I'm just not into anymore, all that American Eagle and Abercrombie junk. I really like Coldplay's sense of fashion. They keep in simple and yet make it look real stylish. I'm not just talking about their stage attire either. From pictures I've seen of them not in their typical black outfits. Anyone have any advice and name of some stores where I could get some of the clothes for that kind of look?
