Fix You (Lead)

Animated Fix You (Lead) tab by Coldplay on guitar. So easy you'll be playing in minutes.

This is the lead guitar section for the end of the song. It's very easy, the hardest thing about it is that it's done in Eb tuning. This means tuning each string down by 1 note to:

Low Eb : Ab : Db : Gb : Bb : Eb

You may not want to go to all that trouble just to practice the riff, but if you wish to play along with the song you'll need to retune.

lead riff - This is the main lead lick. It is quite a short lick, and very repetitive. It keeps repeating until the end of the song. The trick is to keep alternate picking the highest 2 strings together. The high Eb string is always played, and the notes on the adjacent Bb string are all played with the 1st finger. Repeat after the lick finishes at fret 4.
