Coldplay - Green eyes acoustic

BAND: Coldplay SONG: Green Eyes ALBUM: A Rush of Blood to the Head (SORT OF) TABBED BY: David L. E-MAIL: elunahriverwind@hotmail.com This is my first tab, and it's mostly based on another tab that, to my chagrin, I can't access anymore. Thus, I cannot claim that this tab is my own, though I did make changes to it. This is not how the song is played by the band, but it sounds very good for a simple acoustic rendition. Comments, corrections, whimsical musings, etc. are welcome! == UPDATES == [11/09/07]: Realized I transcribed some chords incorrectly. Fixed. [04/02/08]: Once again fixed chords (oh noes!) and added alternatives. Thanks to Jimmyboy, supermancs, schroedersniper, 4tis, and mrevilguy for suggestions. ==== TUNING ==== CAPO 2 | D | | B | | G | | D | | A | | E | The high E string should be tuned down a full step, so it is the same as the third fret on the B string. This can also be played satisfactorily with standard tuning, if it is your preference. ==== CHORDS ====
----G6-0---Dadd9--0-----Am0---Asus2--0-----C0----F7M-0-----| -----3-----3-----1-----0-----1-----1-----| -----0-----2-----2-----2-----0-----2-----| -----0-----0-----2-----2-----2-----3-----| -----2-----0-----0-----0-----3-----0-----| -----3-----2-----------------0-----------|
The strumming pattern is very simple, and is best acquired from listening to the song and trying to play along with it. Roughly speaking, it's something like this: -----------------------------------------
G6D-DU UDU Dadd9D-DU UDU AmD-DU UDU UDU Asus2UDU -----------------------------------------
And no, those aren't protons and neutrons, they're strokes. (Smile if you get that!) The chords as given above are my suggestions. Alternatively, you can use Am7 (002010) instead of Asus2, and you can play both halves of the chorus using the same chord progression (i.E. replacing F7M with Dadd9). ==== SONG ==== [ Remember Capo 2! ] // VERSE 1 //
