Song: Speed of Sound (Album Version)

Artist: Coldplay (Guy Berryman)

Album: X&Y (Capitol)

 

Tabbed by dAvKiAn

 

Tuning: EADG

 

Note:

 

There is no bass on the Intro nor on the first verse;

so for those who do not have a or the synthesizer that Guy uses on these parts,

I wrote a riff to accompany the piano here.

I used a sort of ethereal or phaser effect to give it a synth feel.

Of course, is not original from Coldplay, so you are free to play it or not.

 

 

Intro: starts on the 3rd note of the piano. Play softly and let every note ring. Plays

better with a pick. (Guy Plays the song with a pick anyway).
