Coldplay - Violet hill

Artist: Coldplay Song: Violet Hill Album: Viva La Vida or Death and All his Friends Version: 1.0 AUTHOR: Tab annotated by rikigo (grosserr@gmail.com) [Standing on the shoulders of giants] I've written this in my frustration that I couldn't find/or hear a chord tab of this song that 'hit the right notes', but I acknowledge with thanks the previous works of other UT members who inspired me to complete this submission. TUNING: Standard Tuning with Capo on 2nd fret. This version of the song is set in Bminor. Although original is in C#minor, this sounds more interesting and you get the option of more 'open' chords.
