Coldplay - A Message "Accoustic Part" *please read first* Hi guys, tabbed this nice song of coldplay. This is tabbed out of a live version in japan 2003. My Tab is 100% correct. First of all you have to tune your thin E-string 4 halfsteps down to C, like this: E A D G B C If you wanna play the original song of the records, you will have to add a capo to the first fret. But know we will check the live version. First of all, the strummings: in verse (and the end(don't strumm the x's)): D D D D D D D D U c|-----------------------0-----------------------------------------| B|-----0-----------------0-----------------0-----------------------| G|-----0-----------------0-----------------0-----------------------| D|-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0--0--------------| A|-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0--0--------------| E|-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0--0--------------| 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 1 in chorus and solo: D D U D D D U D D D U c|-----------------------0-----------------------------------------| B|-----0-----------------0-----------------0-----------------------| G|-----0-----------------0-----------------0-----------------------| D|-----0-----0--0--0-----0-----0--0--0-----0-----0--0--------------| A|-----0-----0--0--0-----0-----0--0--0-----0-----0--0--------------| E|-----0-----0--0--0-----0-----0--0--0-----0-----0--0--------------| 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 1 D = strum down U = strum up Now the chords: for verse, chorus and solo: C-major e-minor G-major F-major d-minor C/G-major c|---0-----|---0-----|---0-----|---0-----|---0-----|---0--| B|---0-----|---0-----|---0-----|---0-----|---0-----|---0--| G|---9-----|---0-----|---0-----|---2-----|---0-----|---0--| D|---10----|---2-----|---5-----|---3-----|---12----|---2--| A|---10----|---2-----|---5-----|---3-----|---12----|---3--| E|---8-----|---0-----|---3-----|---1-----|---10----|---3--| ~I know that most chordnames are wrong, but who cares~ tip: pick the bass strings with your thumb chords for the end: F-major C/G-maj G-major a-minor C-major c|---x-----|---x-----|---x-----|---x-----|---0---------------------| B|---x-----|---x-----|---x-----|---1-----|---1---------------------| G|---2-----|---0-----|---0-----|---2-----|---0---------------------| D|---3-----|---2-----|---0-----|---2-----|---2---------------------| A|---3-----|---3-----|---2-----|---0-----|---3---------------------| E|---x-----|---3-----|---3-----|---x-----|---x---------------------| ~verse 1:~ C em 2x G My song is love C em 1,5x G then F My song is love, unknown C em 2x G And it goes on F em 2x G You don't have to be alone ~verse 2:~ C em 2x G Your heavy heart C em 1,5x G then F Is made of stone C em 2x G And its so hard to see clearly F em 2x G You don't have to be on your own F em 2x G <-- start with chorus strumming You don't have to be on your own ~chorus 1:~ 2x dm C G And I'm not gonna take it back 2x dm C G And I'm not gonna say I don't mean that 2x dm C G You're the target that im aiming at F C/G 2x G And I'm nothing on my own ~verse 3:~ C em 2x G My song is love C em 1,5x G then F Love to the loveless shore C em 2x G But I'm on fire for you, clearly F em 2x G <-- start with chorus strumming You don't have to be alone F em 2x G You don't have to be on your own ~chorus 2:~ 2x dm C G And I'm not gonna take it back 2x dm C G And I'm not gonna say I don't mean that 2x dm C G You're the target that im aiming at F C/G 2x G And I'm nothing on my own F C/G 2x G Got to get that message home ~little solo:~ 2x dm C G 2x dm C G ~chorus 3:~ 2x dm C G And I'm not gonna stand and wait 2x dm C G I'm not gonna leave it until its much too late 2x dm C G On a platform I'm gonna stand and sing F C/G 2x G That I'm nothing on my own F C/G 2x G And I love you, please come home F C/G G am F C/G G am ~the end:~ F C/G G am My song is love, is love unknown F C/G G C And I've got to get that message home Enjoy it and feel free to message me at sha__dow@hotmail.com for questions or other stuff.
