----Coldplay + Speed of Sound----- Chords, Also with Electric part at bottom. Tabbed By- Jay Logan - Subbliminal@hotmail.com -Tuning is: Standard Tuning EADGBE (low to high) Sounds Great on Acoustic By the Way Alright, first off, just so people know, The chords listed are pretty much all alternitive fingers, but for this song its what is used. The one thing that I basically noticed, is the constant use of the D note on the second string, and I figured out some really good sounding chords for it. Enjoy. All chords were named using JGuitar's chord namer, very helpfull tool. They also have a chord search and many other things.(http://www.jguitar.com) Now on to the Chord/Tab shall we. Note for Chords Used -I put the bar part for the G, just incase anybody wants to use it for some parts were it is easier. -For the D/F# you hold the bass note with your thumb. -Remember most of these are alternitive fingerings, so play em as shown not how you usually play them, it makes a huge difference.

It is playing some individual notes, which is why some of the chords will sound like one part is way higher. The chords That I made sound awesome on their own though, but with these following parts you will have the full song:) Reason its hard to do chords for this song is because the chords in the song are all synth and piano with guitar doing back up notes. Anyways here they are for you. | / slide up | \ slide down | h hammer-on | p pull-off | ~ vibrato | + harmonic | x Mute note Electric Guitar Part In Verse 2 E|---|-----------|----------|-------------|-------| B|---|----10-8---|---8-8----|----8---7----|--7----| G|---|--/6--6----|----------|-------------|-----6-| D|-7-|---------9-|--9-9-----|--9---7---7--|-7-7---| A|---|-----------|------10--|-------------|-------| E|---|-----------|----------|-------------|-------| E|-----------|----------|-------------| B|----10-8---|---8-8----|----8---7----| G|--/6--6----|----------|-------------| D|---------9-|--9-9-----|--9---7---7--| A|-----------|------10--|-------------| E|-----------|----------|-------------| pre-chorus, Play twice.
