Lesson notes

Yellow is a song by British alternative rock band Coldplay, and appears on their 2000 debut album ‘Parachutes’.

The song is in the key of B, where the guitar is tuned to EABGAD#, and consists of four chords, and one chord out of the key in the outro.

This lesson shows how vocalist Chris Martin plays it. It covers the tuning, the chords, the driving double time strumming and the progression.

It also includes a segment on how to play it in the key of A, capoed on the second fret, for those who like to play it in standard tuning.
