Band: Coldplay

Song: Ladder To The Sun

Album: None (Live Version)

Words & Music: Guy Berrymen, Jon Buckland, Will Champion & Chris Martin

From: Zachary

E-mail: cicak_cobing@yahoo.com

 

Note: This song is a live version. It's a nice song. So just try it

out! :þ The starting song sounds a little of Yellow's intro bit

& ends a little of The Scientist's 'Ouuu...' bit.

 

Standard Tuning: EADGbe

 

Chords Used:

 

C/G Dsus Esus Asus Aminor Fmajor Bsus F#minor Dminor

e| 0 0 0 5 0 0 7 2 1

b| 1 0 0 5 1 1 7 2 3

G| 0 7 9 6 2 2 8 3 2

D| 2 7 9 7 2 3 9 4 0

A| 3 5 7 7 0 3 9 4 0

E| 3 X 0 5 X X 7 2 X

 

Note: The intro starts with piano. What chord is that? I'm not sure,

it could be B or C. Then when the drums come in, the guitar &

bass guitar joins together. At this point, the track is blur,

because the bass guitar is very loud. So the intro here is given

base on the bass guitar. All the C, D, E & A in the intro is

known as Cmajor1, Dsus, Esus & Asus(could be Am) for guitar.

 

Intro: C C C C (piano)

C D drag to E A(open string at 5th string) |This chords is bass

D drag to E C |chords which can be

C D drag to E A(open string at 5th string) |used on the guitar

D drag to E C |& piano.

 

Verse 1:

 

C/G Am

From the very started,

 

C/G Am

Came Earth parted,

 

C/G Am F

Broke up into pieces and...

 

C/G Am

There's a chance I could have missed it,

 

C/G Am

It could risked it,

 

C/G Am F

But I put myself into your hands,

 

Note: The pre chorus is hard. So listen carefully to this part of the

song when you want to play it. Try it first with the bass

guitar's tab then you will get it on your guitar. Again I use the

bass guitar chord, so convert it to guitar when you get it. If

you're playing the guitar for the first test in the pre chorus,

you don't need to play the D & E. If you can, then convert the

D & E to guitar chords as Dsus & Esus.

 

Pre Chorus:

 

C |

Cos you're not just anyone, |

|

D E A |

You're a ladder to the sun, |Once again, this is the for the base.

|For guitar, play the C & A only.

D E C |Convert the C & A to C1 & Am.

You're not just anyone, |

|

D E A |

You're a ladder to the sun, |

 

Note: Lyrics here is just a guess at the 3rd line. So listen to the

song for help.

 

Verse 2:

 

C/G Am

I can run my courses and ah,

 

C/G Am

Opposing forces and now I,

 

C/G Am F

Then I'm just an author and...

 

C/G Am

If you want me then you can have me,

 

C/G Am

Oh take me, oh baby grab me,

 

C/G Am F

Cos If you want me then you can have me,

 

Note: The same as the first pre chorus.

 

Pre Chorus:

 

C

Cos you're not just anyone,

 

D E A

You're a ladder to the sun,

 

D E C

You're not just anyone,

 

D E A

You're a ladder to the sun,

 

Note: The lyrics for the chorus is a guess, but I think it is correct.

The chords for the chorus might not be right because of the way

Chris Martin sing it with a 'throw vocals'(I think that's the

correct term). So this is the best that I can figure it out.

 

Chorus:

 

Asus Bsus

Oh my babe, why you did not turn?

 

Asus Bsus Asus

You set a course and you could not run,

 

Asus Bsus F#m C/G

Oh when I'm out but you did't not turn...

 

Verse 3:

 

C/G Am

I had it all and I risked it,

 

C/G Am

And it could risk it,

 

C/G Am F

I had it all and I risked it all,

 

C/G

And I risked it all,

 

Note: The instrumental starts with the piano. Then the drums bangs in

as the bass guitar finger-walks on the bass. While the electric

guitar play the tabs given below. If you are using acoustic

guitar, then all the C, D, E, & A convert it to C1, Dsus, Esus &

Asus(could be Am).

 

Instrumental: C C C C (piano)

C D E A |

D E C |Then the piano & the bass guitar

C D E A |play the same as the intro.

D E C |

 

The electric guitar's tab.

C/G Am

C/G F

I had it all and I risk it all,

 

Note: This part, all the instruments will fade out leaving the piano

alone.

 

Fade:

 

C/G F

And I risked it all,

 

C/G F

I risked it all,

 

C/G

I had it all,

 

F

I risked it all,

 

C/G F

I risked it all,

 

F C/G

A ladder to the sun,

 

Note: For better understanding listen to the song and try it out. But

still, there is a feeling that in the intro & the intrumental,

the Dsus could be Dminor. Maybe you can correct it if there is

any mistake. Anyway, enjoy!
