The Bridge sounds right, but the verse sounds off. But I might be playing it wrong!! But you are on the right track. Its hard to see his hands. He is always jumping and moving around!!! :laugh3:

Yeah, I know. I am not forgetting it. Does it sound right to you TyM218? I might be looking at it wrong.

Not yet. I'm starting to think it's a different tuning

Kyle, maybe since your good at making piano tutorials, you can do Chris's piano part for the stripped version of strawberry swing and I'll make a tab for guitar based on your tutorial.

well i dont play piano but in internet says that the chords from the verse are C# G# D# and its the same to play C, G and D on the guitar but with capo on 1st fret but chris play the C in the 8th fret position, the G in 7fret position and D in the 5fret position and playing only the g b and e strings (3 last strings)
so i think its correct

bad bad, chris rarely plays on standard, and he always plays chords with thumb: he isn't muting, he's fretting! for example, he'd play a G chord like this: 3 5 5 4 3 0

Yes i know but watch this video here yo can see that Chris only plays the G,B and E strings
And i'm sure that is standard because when Chris plays the riff at the last part of the song
he plays this
e-11/13-----16--16--16-13------------------------------------------------------------
b---------------------------------16--13--------11/13-16--16--16--13--------------
g-------------------------------------------15-------------------------------15--13-------
d---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------15

and jonny this:
e------------16--16--16/13---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
b-16/18---------------------------16--13--------------------16---16--16/13----------------------------------
g-------------------------------------------------15---15/17---------------------------15--13---------
d--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------15----

Is just the same because e-11/13 is the same to play b-16/18 and b-11/13 is the same to play g-15/17

lol at the video, you can hear the acoustic guitar for the first minute and he isn't playing. very well coldplay, very well.......

so chris is just adding some bits here, but the real acoustic track (the backing track here) is played as i noted before: full chords using the thumb (as he starts doing at around 2.10 in the video)

you don't hear it? seriously?? there's definitely an acoustic guitar track there. i can't remember how i played it, but i'm pretty positive about that thumb thing i've told you about.
