The third and long awaited follow-up album to Rush Of Blood To The Head and Parachutes by one of the most successful British bands of all time. Includes the new single Speed Of Sound and 12 other tracks all arranged for Guitar tablature with full lyrics and chords. Thirteen huge songs that are typical of Coldplay's style. Chris Martin's lyrics evoke real pathos, conveying his emotions and subjects in the manner with which we have grown familiar. The music shifts from intimate, quiet and personal to soaring breaks and climaxes, culminating in massive layered sound that push back the band's own boundaries.
An excellent guitar book with lots of great songs that are easy to learn. However, the book is not for new beginners, but for those who have played a couple of years. As usually, Coldplay tune some strings down on a couple of songs, but a couple of songs are played in standard tuning. I guess the guitar part is easy compared to the singing, Chris sings pretty high on several songs. A got a lot of favourites already, but Til Kingdom Come(different tuning) is an fantastic song for acoustic guitar and is the one I prefer so far. I highly recommend the book, but expect to have to tune the guitar... Anonymous
