TABBER: subliminal

----Coldplay + Speed of Sound----- Chords, Also with Electric part at bottom.
[v1.3]

[UTPost- v1 - Chords posted with electric part.] 
[Update- v2 - Took out an extra pre-chorus I put in, fixed one elec note]
[Update- v3 - - Updated electric chorus parts after noticing error] 


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.

Ok Now for the other electric part. 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.

| h  hammer-on
