Coldplay - Green Eyes Acoustic tab

      
BAND: Coldplay
SONG: Green Eyes
ALBUM: A Rush of Blood to the Head
(SORT OF) TABBED BY: David L.
E-MAIL: elunahriverwind@hotmail.com

This is my first tab, and it's mostly based on another tab that, to my chagrin, I can't
access anymore. Thus, I cannot claim that this tab is my own, though I did make changes
to it. This is not how the song is played by the band, but it sounds very good for a
simple acoustic rendition. Comments, corrections, whimsical musings, etc. are welcome!

== UPDATES ==
[11/09/07]: Realized I transcribed some chords incorrectly. Fixed.
[04/02/08]: Once again fixed chords (oh noes!) and added alternatives. Thanks to
Jimmyboy, supermancs, schroedersniper, 4tis, and mrevilguy for suggestions.

==== TUNING ====

CAPO 2

| D |
| B |
| G |
| D |
| A |
| E |

The high E string should be tuned down a full step, so it is the same as the third fret
on the B string. This can also be played satisfactorily with standard tuning, if it is
your preference.


==== CHORDS ====

G6 Dadd9 Am Asus2 C F7M-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----|-----3-----3-----1-----0-----1-----1-----|-----0-----2-----2-----2-----0-----2-----|-----0-----0-----2-----2-----2-----3-----|-----2-----0-----0-----0-----3-----0-----|-----3-----2-----------------0-----------|
The strumming pattern is very simple, and is best acquired from listening to the song and trying to play along with it. Roughly speaking, it's something like this:
-----------------------------------------G6 Dadd9 Am Asus2D-DU UDU D-DU UDU D-DU UDU UDU UDU-----------------------------------------
And no, those aren't protons and neutrons, they're strokes. (Smile if you get that!) The chords as given above are my suggestions. Alternatively, you can use Am7 (002010) instead of Asus2, and you can play both halves of the chorus using the same chord progression (i.E. replacing F7M with Dadd9). ==== SONG ==== [ Remember Capo 2! ] // VERSE 1 // G6 Dadd9 Am Asus2 Honey, you are a rock G6 Dadd9 Am Asus2 Upon which I stand, G6 Dadd9 Am Asus2 And I come here to talk, G6 Dadd9 Am Asus2 I hope you under - stand. // CHORUS 1 // Am C The green eyes, yeah the spotlight G6 Dadd9 Shines upon you.
