PLAY­ING TIPS

Guitar Techniques - - Coldplay Learning Zone -

Mak­ing sure the notes are all clear, in tune and in time is the main fo­cus for the rhythm part. With mo­tifs such as the main melody in the first part of the track, it’s the melody and har­mony that is built up that needs to be at the fore­front, and play­ing th­ese sim­ple parts ac­cu­rately with good in­to­na­tion is key. With the ‘lead’ pas­sages, the dou­ble-stop bends in bars 21 and 22 are de­cid­edly ag­gres­sive, but again need to be well con­trolled. Let all the notes in each chord in bars 11-18 ring into each other through­out. No­tice how th­ese sim­ple parts re­ally grow in stature as they fit within the com­po­si­tion.
