Hey everyone! In today’s lesson, we’re gonna show you how to play “Viva La Vida” by Coldplay. This is yet another one of those “repeat the same 4 chords” type of songs, so it shouldn’t be too difficult to put together.
The chords in question are: C, D, G and E minor.
Aside from the chords, there’s a strumming pattern and this is probably the trickiest part in this one. The strumming pattern itself isn’t too hard, but we need to split it over 2 chords (switch chords halfway through the pattern).
We go over all of that with you, and then play the entire tune together. Hope you enjoy the lesson, and be sure to leave a comment if you do!
