Fix You (Rhythm)

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

The guitar in this song comes in at the 3rd verse. It is an acoustic guitar with a capo placed at Fret 3. The chords used are straightforward and this is a good song for beginners, as it is quite simple. Because the capo is on, familiar open chord shapes will technically produce different chords (e.g. the C major shape at fret 3 actually gives an Eb major chord). But don't worry about all that. The basic shapes are what most people are familiar with, so we'll refer to them that way to keep things simple:

C major shape - C7 shape - A minor shape - G6 sus4 shape (repeat 3 more times)

Then play the following sequence:

F major shape - C major shape - G major shape (repeat with more strums on the F major chord the next 2 times)

That's all the rhythm guitar needed for the whole song. Next we'll see the lead riff used for the epic ending.
