Coldplay-The Scientist (Acoustic)

This song is about a scientist who is so caught up in his work that he neglects his girlfriend, but realizes it eventually and wants to "go back to the start" and begin fresh.

Coldplay are an English alternative rock band formed in 1996 by lead vocalist Chris Martin and lead guitarist Jonny Buckland at University College London.[3] After forming Pectoralz, Guy Berryman joined the group as a bassist and they changed their name to Starfish.[4] Will Champion joined as a drummer, backing vocalist, and multi-instrumentalist, completing the lineup. Manager Phil Harvey is often considered an unofficial fifth member.[5] The band renamed themselves "Coldplay" in 1998,[6] before recording and releasing three EPs; Safety in 1998, Brothers & Sisters as a single in 1999 and The Blue Room in the same year. The latter was their first release on a major label, after signing to Parlophone.[7] Coldplay has won numerous music awards throughout their history, including six Brit Awards—winning Best British Group three times, four MTV Video Music Awards, and seven Grammy Awards from twenty nominations. 2009 was their most successful year having received seven Grammy Award nominations at the 51st Grammy Awards, and won three.[8]


Feel free to listen n_n..

The Scientist

Come up to meet you
Tell you I'm sorry
You don't know how lovely you are
I had to find you
Tell you I need you
Tell you I set you apart
Tell me your secrets
And ask me your questions
Oh, let's go back to the start
Running in circles
Calling tails
Heads on a silence apart

Nobody said it was easy
It's such a shame for us to part
Nobody said it was easy
No one ever said it would be this hard
Oh, take me back to the start

I was just guessing
At numbers and figures
Pulling the puzzles apart
Questions of science
Science and progress
Did not speak as loud as my heart
Tell me you love me
Come back and haunt me
I want to rush to the start
Running in circles
Chasing tails
Coming back as we are

Nobody said it was easy
Oh, it's such a shame for us to part
Nobody said it was easy
No one ever said it would be so hard
I'm going back to the start



Dishwalla Angels or Devils (acoustic)

Dishwalla is an American alternative rock band. The band's name comes from a Hindi term for a person providing cable television to a neighborhood. In a Vox interview, Rodney claimed the band took the name out of a Wired magazine article.

In 1994, the band recorded "Take Some Time" on the tribute album If I Were A Carpenter featuring cover versions of songs by The Carpenters.

In 1996, the single "Counting Blue Cars" from the album Pet Your Friends climbed the charts and was frequently played on the airwaves, bringing the band a short round of mainstream-scale success. The track earned them a Billboard Award for "Best Rock Song" for 1996 as well as two ASCAP Awards for "Rock Track Of The Year" in both 1996 and 1997. Their 1998 follow-up album, And You Think You Know What Life's About, failed to sustain the level of popularity achieved by "Counting Blue Cars".

Dishwalla have since made a handful of other ventures into the limelight. In 1995 the song "Counting Blue Cars" was featured in the movie "Empire Records". "Pretty Babies" is on the Blast From The Past soundtrack. In 1998 landed the song "Truth Serum" in The Avengers; in 1999, the song "Stay Awake" was featured in the movie Stir of Echoes' and the song "Find Your Way Back Home" was featured in the movie American Pie. In 2002 the song "Home" was in the movie The Banger Sisters and the The WB series Charmed spotlighted Dishwalla as musical guests in one episode. Other TV shows that have used their songs include Smallville, The OC, and NCIS. The band has gone on to release two more studio albums, Opaline and the self-titled Dishwalla, as well as a live album, Live... Greetings From The Flow State.

Five singles charted on Billboard. In 1996, "Counting Blue Cars" peaked at #15 on the Hot 100 but climbed to #5 on both the Adult Top 40 and Hot 100 Airplay charts, #4 on the Top 40 Mainstream charts, #2 on the Mainstream Rock charts, and #1 on the Modern Rock charts. "Charlie Brown's Parents" hit #24 on the Mainstream Rock charts. The following year, "Give" was a #26 Adult Top 40 single. In 1998, "Once in a While" reached #17 on the Mainstream Rock charts and #20 on the Modern Rock charts. Finally, "Somewhere in the Middle" hit #25 on the Adult Top 40 charts in 2002.

In 2006, the band decided to take a break from recording, and returned to touring in 2008 with a modified lineup of Scot Alexander, Rodney Cravens, Jim Wood and original drummer George Pendergast. The lineup featured long time friend, Justin Fox, singer of the Santa Barbara band Tripdavon, as a "Special Guest Vocalist". Lead Singer J.R. Richards recorded a debut solo album titled "A Beautiful End" that was released on May 12, 2009.

On March 15, 2009, Dishwalla was asked to play a benefit concert for "Tea Fire" victims, Lance and Carla Hoffman who were badly burned in fires which hit Santa Barbara in November 2008. The hugely successful event was put on by coordinated efforts with Santa Barbara City Fire, Santa Barbara County Fire, Montecito Fire, Carpentaria/Summerland Fire departments.



Best Songs to Start on the Guitar

Studying the best way to participate in the guitar is not only based on learning how to strum the chords it also includes learning to play the songs. If the player is a beginner, it may be a little difficult for him to play songs with the guitar.

Here are some tips for beginners in choosing which songs to play the guitar with:
1. The actual very best time to pick music and play a song with a guitar is after the beginner has mastered the basic skills of guitar playing. He should already know how to hold a guitar, strum and tune the guitar.
2. The novice should already be familiar with the chords before he chooses a song that he can play. He have to know the basic chords as well as the more complicated ones before choosing a song.
3. He needs to practice shifting chords before he can play a song. He need to practice by continuously moving the arms to learn the different chords. This will make the fingers more flexible when changing chords.
4. When choosing a song, he can first choose songs that use only the basic chords; start with songs that use only 2 or 3 chords for the rest of the song.
5. The songs that he chooses should not also be too up-tempo so that he can easily follow along with the chords and the speed of the song. A newbie may have a difficult time following the chords and shifting his fingers if the song is too fast - start with the slower mellow ones.
6. That beginner may check out the songs like "As Tears Go By" by the Rolling Stones, "Day Tripper" by the Beatles, "Daydream Believer" by The Monkees and "Paint it Black" by the Rolling Stones. He will find these songs easy to play with the guitar since they have simple chords and they are not too fast for beginners.
It is important to remember that beginners need not rush and jump into playing songs immediately. They should be patient and learn the most perfect time to play a song with a guitar. Playing the chords of another song with the guitar is the greatest achievement of beginners and why it is essential to be ready to choose easy songs first to avoid frustrations and pressure. Also try and pick songs to study that you actually enjoy - this can make the mastering process a lot more pleasureable.
