Biffy Clyro "Bubbles" Guitar Chords and Lyrics

This is my first attempt at chording a Biffy Clyro song - despite the fact that both of my daughters have been fans since they were a virtually unknown band more than 10 years ago! While I liked what I was hearing from them, I didn't think they had enough global appeal to be of interest to my site visitors or Blog readers.

Only in the past couple of years have the band become an 'overnight success', their last album "Only Revolutions" hitting the UK charts at number 8, and peaking at the number three spot.

"Bubbles" is actually the 5th single taken from the album, I must admit I haven't listented to it extensively, but it is certainly more commercial than the earlier stuff I'd heard, reminiscent of bands like Snow Patrol, Keane, with maybe a touch of Kings of Leon.

I have worked out my version of "Bubbles" - the song is in G sharp/A Flat, so I've worked it out with a capo on the 1st fret, which means you can play it with chords in the key of G, and still play along with the record. Chords are mostly simple - G, D, E minor 7, B minor, A, A sus4, and F#/Dsus4 ( which is not as tricky as it sounds, being 2x0233, i.e. play the Dsus4 chord and hold down the 2nd fret, 6th string with your thumb ).

Although it's a 'rock band' kind of song, you can have fun with it on an acoustic, and it still sounds good. My transcription of Bubbles is now on my Rock Songs guitar chords page at the link below
