Coldplay "Major Minus" From "Every Teardrop is a Waterfall" EP 2011 This is my first tab, but I think it's fairly accurate. I made it listening to the song and to the live performances trying to figure it out and I think it's pretty close! This is mainly LEAD guitar, so if your looking for the chords this might not be the ideal tab for you, but I do have the Intro and the Verse tabbed out... Anyway please rate and comment and tell me what you think! Enjoy! :) Standard tuning for all. Guitar 1 - Chris acoustic (clean) Guitar 2 - Johnny Electric: Distortion, delay Guitar 3 - Johnny Electric: More Distortion, delay Intro riff: Guitar 1 Listen to song for rhythm... e-----------------------------------------------------------¦ b-------------------------------------------7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-¦ g----9/12----9-9-9-9-----9/12----9-9-9-9----x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-¦ d----9/12----9-9-9-9-----9/12----9-9-9-9----9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-¦ a----7/10----7-7-7-7-----7/10----7-7-7-7----9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-¦ E----x-x-----x-x-x-x-----x-x-----x-x-x-x--------------------¦ I'm sure there's a fourth cord after the last one, but I can't work it out. Continue "Intro" through Verse: "They got one eye watching you..." (Pre - Chorus) "So be careful what it is you're trying to do..." Guitar 1 - Repeat x3 - Again listen to song for rhythm and timings e-------------------¦¦-------------¦ b-------------------¦¦-------------¦ g-------------------¦¦-9-9-9-9-9-9-¦ d--2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2--¦¦-9-9-9-9-9-9-¦ a--3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3--¦¦-7-7-7-7-7-7-¦ E-------------------¦¦-x-x-x-x-x-x-¦ (End of Pre-Chorus) Guitar 2 e-x-x-x-x-¦ b-x-x-x-x-¦ g-x-x-x-x-¦ d-x-x-x-x-¦ a-x-x-x-x-¦ E-x-x-x-x-¦ (Chorus) "ooh ooh ohh..." Main Riff: Guitar 2 - Repeat x2 e---------------------------------------------------------------------------¦ b---------------------------------------------------------------------------¦ g-9--9--7h9-7h9--7h9-7h9-9-7h9-7h9-7h9/11--11-9h11-9h11-9h11/16-16-16-------¦ d---------------------------------------------------------------------16-16-¦ a---------------------------------------------------------------------------¦ E---------------------------------------------------------------------------¦ Coundn't tell what Guitar 1 was playing in Chorus... Sorry! Verse 2: Guitar 2 Back to Intro Riff Same as Verse 1 Chorus 2 is the same for Guitar 2. but the pre-bridge has different chords which I haven't figured out yet. Where it goes: "got one eye on the road and you could hear them climbing the stairs got my right side fighting while my left hides under the chairs" Bridge: Harmonics: Guitar 2 with "echo" - Repeat x8 e-----------(7)-(7)----(14)-(14)-----------¦ b--(8)-(8)-----------------------(15)-(15)-¦ g------------------------------------------¦ d------------------------------------------¦ a------------------------------------------¦ E------------------------------------------¦ Solo: - Guitar 3 e-----¦ b-----¦ g--7--¦ Then MAIN RIFF x2 d--9--¦ a--9--¦ E-----¦ e-----------17----------17------15---------14--------------14--------¦ b--15h14h15----15h14h15----15h14---15h14------------15h14------------¦ g----------------------------------------16---16h14-------16---16h14-¦REPEAT d--------------------------------------------------------------------¦ x4 a--------------------------------------------------------------------¦ E--------------------------------------------------------------------¦ I'm not quite sure about the ending of the solo, but it sounds pretty close! Thanks for looking and I hope you found this tab useful! Please rate and comment, since this is my first tab and I'd love to get some feedback! Enjoy! :D jjwiggie e:
