Welcome to Throwback Thursday’s where I teach you a classic hit from the last 4-5 decades! This week I’ll be covering an In My Place Guitar Tutorial from british band Coldplay! This is one of my favourites from Coldplay and I love how energetic the song is with the amazingly strong drum beat at the start.

This tune also has a great lead riff which is simple to play which I’ll show you.

At the end of the video i’ll be playing through the entirety of #inmyplace with a vocal track on top for you to play along to. Enjoy! Like this #inmyplace video by #coldplay and subscribe to the channel for more videos in the future!

And if you go, if you go, leave me down here on my own,
