  1. I hope that helps. Notes are notes right? chords are chords. if this helps you, won't you let me know? haha
  2. I have it on guitar. Here are the basic triads for my own guitar notation. if you play these triads with the note C# in every single chord, you should have you chords. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xGZiWrSvlIY Mobile Link: https://youtu.be/xGZiWrSvlIY
  3. I think this song is better every time i hear it. I layered a lot of electric guitars on here (some of which i recorded a microphone without plugging in) and played some bass and drums and a few extras. If anyone wants to know how i played what, i'll do my best to remember :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hlKvYadQgfU Mobile Link: https://youtu.be/hlKvYadQgfU
  4. and here is a very accurate tutorial (with regard to how chris martin plays the song) of Oceans on guitar. I've loved this song since i heard it for some reason. Never saw anyone on the internet quite nail it exactly so i worked it out.
  5. just sharing a video of me figuring out how to play a song by ear. I'd never tried to play this song before i recorded this. I don't know if this could be helpful to anyone, but sometimes seeing how "playing by ear" tends to look in real time, this is how i go about it. Definitely not a tutorial about how to play the song. Just a look at how I figure stuff out. cheers. Charlie https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oZtPrxQ_HOc Mobile Link: https://youtu.be/oZtPrxQ_HOc
  6. I ust listened to the album version and i can clearly hear that the D chord is in the traditional voicing (x-x-0-2-3-2) so i imagine the "deeper" as opposed to higher sonic's of the guitar are the way it was EQ'd. I used standard tuning for my cover. A rarity with coldplay songs, but not unheard of. :)
  7. Hey man. I don't remember how I played the electric guitar part (part B of the song if you will), but starting with "might have to to go," I recall playing a standard D chord and then a Bminor chord with the high e string open (x-2-4-4-3-0), and after those two chords alternate, i play a variety of Gmaj7 chords, with the best sounding version of the chord being (3-x-0-4-3-2) (using the thumb to fret the 3rd fret on the sixth string. thanks for the kind words. cheers

  10. Forgot to mention. Make sure to keep the palm as close to the bridge of the guitar as possible
