Last year we had a hit with the Keith Richards' arrangement of Coldplay's, "Clocks." Kevin McChesney follows that up with another Coldplay title in an arrangement that begins with easy-to-master malleted patterns, and builds with excitement as the melody soars in the treble bells. Optional parts for Guitar, Bass, Drums, and Synth will add authenticity to the performance, creating a sure fire hit for younger audiences.
