How to play Yellow by Coldplay

SB-124 • Yellow by Coldplay

The Justinguitar.com Songbook Series

Look at the stars, look how they shine for you

What a huge song! I was amazed that when I volunteered in Ghana back in 2007 that almost everyone knew this song - it really reached people all over the world in a way that only music can. I had this little guitar and was trying to get a bunch of kids singing xmas songs and stuff thinking they'd know them, when one of them started singing Yellow and they all joined in! They didn't speak English well enough to make sense of any of it and most of the words were just sounds, but it somehow connected. Music is amazing.

Anyway. Playing this song is pretty easy once you sus out the interesting tuning, sounds great once you get that right :) Hope you dig it.
