Coldplay - Violet Hill tab

Well, I just realized how to play the original version of Violet Hill loke Jonny plays.
This tab was made mostly watching Jonny playing, then some parts are made by ear and
checked watching Jonny and there's one part that I learned from other tab. This is for 
electric guitar and if you have the option play it with a Les Paul Model, I play this 
with a
Strat and it sounds like the real song.

Hope you enjoy it!



Tunning: D A D G B E

The guitar starts with something like this:

"...there was snow, white snow..."

Hollowed out to fit their *rifles
And a cross *held aloft
