                             Yellow (Acoustic) - Coldplay
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Freddie Macauley
E-mail: fmacauley2@gmail.com

Tuning: Standard

I haven't seen a tab, where the lead part of this song can be played with a capo on 2.
So I thought I'd quickly tab this out so that using the chords (with the capo on 2) you 
could play the lead the whole song solo.
This isn't how the original is played it's an adaptation to allow the whole thing to be 
played acoustic, with one or two guitars.
There is a chords tab with capo 2 already on the site.

2 Guitars:
