Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
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
e|-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----|
B|-----3-----3-----1-----0-----1-----1-----|
G|-----0-----2-----2-----2-----0-----2-----|
D|-----0-----0-----2-----2-----2-----3-----|
A|-----2-----0-----0-----0-----3-----0-----|
E|-----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              Asus2
D-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).

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.
  Am             C
And how could anybody
 G6        Dadd9
Deny you?
Am                    C
   I came here with a load,

                     G6     F7M       C
And it feels so much ligh - ter now I met you.
Am                      C
   And honey you should know
                   G6     F7M     C
That I could never go     on without you.
Am
Green eyes...


[Verse 2]

G6       Dadd9        Am     Asus2
   Honey, you are the sea
G6       Dadd9    Am     Asus2
   Upon  which I float,
G6       Dadd9        Am     Asus2
   And I came here to talk
G6         Dadd9      Am     Asus2
   I think you should know.


[Chorus 2]

    Am                      C
That green eyes, you're the one that I
          G6   Dadd9
Wanted to fi - ind.
   Am               C
Anyone who tried to deny you
                     G6   Dadd9
Must be out of their mi - ind.
Am                       C
   'Cus came here with a load,


                     G6     F7M         C
And it feels so much ligh - ter since I met you.
Am                      C
   And honey you should know
                   G6     F7M     C
That I could never go     on without you.
Am
Green eyes...green eyes...


[Bridge]

      G6                 Am
Oh oh oh oh     oh oh oh oh
                     G6
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh


[Outro]

G6       Dadd9      Am     Asus2
   Honey, you are a rock
G6       Dadd9    Am (strum and let ring)
   Upon  which I stand...
