Coldplay - A whisper

Tabber: Hound_Of_Winter eMail: Tuning: Standard | / slide up | \ slide down | h hammer-on | ~ note is held for a noticeably long time The funnest Coldplay bass part to play, in my humble opinion. It's actually in 4/4, it or not, the triplets really throw you of though, so I just count like it's in 3/4. The a total whirlwind of sound, you can hear like 5 guitar parts at any given time! Anyways, we're here to tab out the bass. I got the song down a while ago and have had adding to it since. I'll show a few of these throughout the tab, they'll either be in ( ) or be represented as an alternative the actual tones with [OR]. Intro: No bass for 8 Bars, then...
