Coldplay, ‘Yellow’

Coldplay, ‘Yellow’ ukulele tab

The old indie walk-on-the-beach becomes a little more interesting when you listen out for the subtleties. I’ve not transcribed the chords verbatim, but used the hints of sus4s that were there, and a particularly lovely Fadd9. Still a nice easy version. And there’s a surprise at the end I’d entirely forgotten!

PS.  Tab is in C, recording is in B, so tune down a semitone if you’re doing kara-uke.

PPS.  Realised after sharing this with the delightful SCUPA that the G6 in the tab is nothing of the sort  – it’s a B♭6, in fact, if such things matter to you.  Don’t ask me how I mistook the two.  It’s a reet puzzler, since I don’t have a tin ear.

    Music is like the doorway to our souls. It helps us connect to our inner voice and to the external world as well. Music has the power to heal

Got something to say?
