Song: Death Will Never Conquer

////////////////
// The "talk" //
////////////////

This is a simple song by Coldplay, released on 14th July as a free download.
It was first played live during the Brixton Acadamy show, with Will on vocals
and the guitar in the background. However, on the studio recording, Chris is
singing, followed by a piano tune.

The song can be played with a capo on the 1st fret, or by using barré chords.
I will write both versions.

// Notes //
///////////

These are just the core chords (not necessarily correct) used in the song -
it might sound better if, at times, you play the D chords the same way you do
in "Crazy Little Thing Called Love" by Queen.

For those who don't know what I am talking about:

E|-2-3-2-|
B|-3-3-3-|
G|-2-2-2-|
D|-0-0-0-|
A|-x-x-x-|
E|-x-x-x-|

The same goes for the barré chord, except you do it on the second (B) string.

21.07.2008. (the second number is obviously the month :])
  Changed the D chord in the last two lines to Bm
  (thanks to Nicolas Levy Renaud )
