                             WHISPER - Coldplay
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Jordan Elek
Email: burnincheez@aim.com

This tab is only meant to be a playable rendition of the song, not a
version. The alternate tuning makes the song easier to play, and seems like something 
would do anyway.

Some parts don't have strum patterns shown because they're too long to type out but
easy to figure out.

**Tuning: EAEGBe**
Capo 3

just for the sake of accuracy the Cmaj7 chord at the top is actually a Csus2+maj7 and the chord going by the name of C? is an actual Cmaj7..it's nice if you are writing out a chord chart to have the right chords....

you've got the chords all wrong. in the 'chords used:' section, the
1st chord:E Dominant 7, not E
2nd chord:E, not Eadd9
3rd chord:Csus2+maj7, not Cmaj7
4th chord:Cmaj7, not C?
5th chord:Dsus2, not Asus4
6th chord:Aadd11, not A
7th chord:Asus4(add9), not Asus2
8th chord:Em7, not Em
9th chord:Bmadd11, not Bm
11th chord: nonexistent!

the only chord you got right was the 10th chord. 1 star, worst tab seen in years.

this would be just as easy in standard tuning. chords would be as follows:

    E   Eadd9 Cmaj7   C?  Asus4   A   Asus2   Em    Bm   G6 Aadd9
e|--0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0--|
B|--0-----0-----0-----0-----3-----2-----0-----0-----0-----3-----0--|
G|--1-----1-----0-----0-----2-----2-----2-----0-----7-----4-----6--|
D|--2-----4-----2-----4-----2-----2-----2-----2-----x-----x-----x--|
A|--2-----2-----3-----3-----0-----0-----0-----------9-----5-----7--|
E|--0-----0-----------------------------------------7-----3-----5--|

or those x's could just be payed as the same fret as the A (i.e. 9, 5, 7)
