Coldplay Violet Hill Guitar Tabs

 

Well, I just realized how to play the original version of Violet Hill loke Jonny plays.

This tab was made mostly watching Jonny playing, then some parts are made by ear and

checked watching Jonny and there's one part that I learned from other tab. This is for

electric guitar and if you have the option play it with a Les Paul Model, I play this

with a

Strat and it sounds like the real song.

 

Hope you enjoy it!

 

 

 

Tunning: D A D G B E

 

The guitar starts with something like this:

 

"...there was snow, white snow..."

E|----------------------|

B|----------------------|

G|----------------------|

D|--5-4--3-2------------|

A|--5-4--3-2------------|

D|--5-4--3-2------------|

 

"...While we froze, down below"

E|----------------------|

B|----------------------|

G|----------------------|

D|--5-4--3-2------------|

A|--5-4--3-2------------|

D|--5-4--3-2------------|

 

Then while it says "When the future's architectured" it comes with this

 

E|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|

B|-----14-14-14-14-14-14-14----14-14-14-14-14-14-14----14-14-14-14-14-14-14-|

G|--16----------------------16----------------------16----------------------|

D|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|

A|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|

D|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|

----14-14-14-|

And the chorus is:

 

Ab5 A5 Ab5 E5 C#5 B5 C#5

E|------------------------------------------------|

B|------------------------------------------------|

G|--13--14--13----9--6--4--6--6--6--6--6--6--6--6-|

A|--11--12--11----7--4--2--4--4--4--4--4--4--4--4-|

Now in this verse in the places where is this mark (*) it comes with this

 

E|--9--9--9--|

B|--9--9--9--|

G|--9--9--9--|

D|--11-11-11-|

A|-----------|

D|-----------|

 

Was a long and dark Decem*ber

When the banks became ca*thedrals

And a fox *became God

 

E|----------------------|

B|----------------------|

G|----------------------|

D|--5-4--3-2------------|

A|--5-4--3-2------------|

D|--5-4--3-2------------|

 

 

Priests clutched onto bi*bles

Hollowed out to fit their *rifles

And a cross *held aloft

 

Then it comes with "Bury me in armour..." with the same riff as before:

 

E|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|

B|-----14-14-14-14-14-14-14----14-14-14-14-14-14-14----14-14-14-14-14-14-14-|

G|--16----------------------16----------------------16----------------------|

D|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|

A|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|

D|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Chorus:

E|------------------------------------------------|

B|------------------------------------------------|

G|--13--14--13----9--6--4--6--6--6--6--6--6--6--6-|

D|--13--14--13----9--6--4--6--6--6--6--6--6--6--6-|

A|--11--12--11----7--4--2--4--4--4--4--4--4--4--4-|

D|------------------------------------------------|

 

Solo:

 

E|-----------------------|----------------------|

B|-----------------------|----------------------|

G|--9-8-6-9-------6------|--9-8-6-9-------6-----|

D|----------6-9-6--------|----------6-9-6-------|

A|------------------9-9--|------------------9-9-|

D|-----------------------|----------------------|

|----------6-9-6--------|----------6-9-6-----5-4--3-2-|

|------------------9-9--|--------------------5-4--3-2-|

|-----------------------|--------------------5-4--3-2-|

 

Then when it says "I don't want to be a soldier..." it comes AGAIN with the same riff as before

 

E|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|

B|-----14-14-14-14-14-14-14----14-14-14-14-14-14-14----14-14-14-14-14-14-14-|
