Coldplay - Major Minus tab

Coldplay 
"Major Minus"
From "Every Teardrop is a Waterfall" EP
2011


This is my first tab, but I think it's fairly accurate. 
I made it listening to the song and to the live performances 
trying to figure it out and I think it's pretty close! 
This is mainly LEAD guitar, so if your looking for the chords this might
not be the ideal tab for you,
but I do have the Intro and the Verse tabbed out...
Anyway please rate and comment and tell me what you think! Enjoy! :)

Standard tuning for all.

Guitar 1 - Chris acoustic (clean)
Guitar 2 - Johnny Electric: Distortion, delay
Guitar 3 - Johnny Electric: More Distortion, delay

Intro riff: Guitar 1
Listen to song for rhythm...

e-----------------------------------------------------------¦
b-------------------------------------------7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-¦
g----9/12----9-9-9-9-----9/12----9-9-9-9----x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-¦
d----9/12----9-9-9-9-----9/12----9-9-9-9----9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-¦
a----7/10----7-7-7-7-----7/10----7-7-7-7----9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-¦
E----x-x-----x-x-x-x-----x-x-----x-x-x-x--------------------¦

I'm sure there's a fourth cord after the last one, but I can't work it out.

Continue "Intro" through Verse: "They got one eye watching you..."

(Pre - Chorus) 

"So be careful what it is you're trying to do..."

Guitar 1 - Repeat x3 - Again listen to song for rhythm and timings

d---------------------------------------------------------------------16-16-¦
a---------------------------------------------------------------------------¦
E---------------------------------------------------------------------------¦

Coundn't tell what Guitar 1 was playing in Chorus... Sorry!

Verse 2: Guitar 2
Back to Intro Riff
Same as Verse 1

Chorus 2 is the same for Guitar 2. 
but the pre-bridge has different chords which I haven't figured out yet. 
Where it goes: 
"got one eye on the road and
 you could hear them climbing the stairs
 got my right side fighting while my left hides under the chairs"
 
Bridge:

Harmonics: Guitar 2 with "echo" - Repeat x8
e-----------(7)-(7)----(14)-(14)-----------¦
b--(8)-(8)-----------------------(15)-(15)-¦
g------------------------------------------¦
d------------------------------------------¦
a------------------------------------------¦
E------------------------------------------¦

Solo: - Guitar 3

e-----¦                 
b-----¦
g--7--¦  Then MAIN RIFF x2 
d--9--¦
a--9--¦

e-----------17----------17------15---------14--------------14--------¦
b--15h14h15----15h14h15----15h14---15h14------------15h14------------¦
g----------------------------------------16---16h14-------16---16h14-¦REPEAT
d--------------------------------------------------------------------¦  x4

I'm not quite sure about the ending of the solo, but it sounds pretty close!

Thanks for looking and I hope you found this tab useful!

Please rate and comment, since this is my first tab and I'd love to get some feedback! 

Enjoy! :D
