Coldplay - Speed of sound acoustic

Coldplay - Speed of Sound - Acoustic (Live 2012) On their 2012 tour, Coldplay have done an acoustic version of "Speed of sound" with Will on Piano, Chris on Acoustic, and Jonny and Guy on their normal guitar and bass. This is in a bit of a different key than usual and sounds a lot more vibrant than the original which I think was the aim. When doing the "Dm," it may pay to block the top string.
