My cover of Coldplay's Fix You

Hello! It has been cold and gloomy here for quite a while so I tried to play a warm song.

You guys are so kind when I uploaded my first AVOYP a while ago, it gave me great courage and strength.

I also stick to the ‘keep playing even if you made a mistake’ rule that Justin mentioned, I almost believed I didn’t play any chord wrong :face_holding_back_tears:

I tried to stick to guitar playing in this difficult time, hope everyone is well :heartbeat: love you guys

omg i just realized i made a loud noise at the end of this video, sorry in advance to you if you get startled!


Hmm… Yes, the loud noise got me back to earth at the end :earth_asia:

You have a very beautiful voice, Rinka, and you showed lots of stamina and resilience when you kept playing and singing through a few little hiccups.

I loved your rendition, and I didn’t mind those rare little flaws at all. Your song fits the mood here as well. It’s barely in the minus degrees and grey and gloomy. One of those days when you can guess that winter will end but the sun is nowhere to be seen. One of those days, when it’s cold without really being cold.

Your song warmed me. Thank you so much. It’s a shame however that your guitar is barely visible in the video…

Thanks Joku, sorry about the startle! Keep warm in this weather, I’ve been telling myself to enjoy the present even it’s far from the best moments of life.

Thank you for liking my clip, your comment warmed my heart too :smiling_face:

And here is a pic of my orange guitar


Thank you, I love orange guitars … there is something about them :orange_heart:

I understand that you are a strong woman. Hopefully, even if it’s just small things, sharing your beautiful music with us can help you to feel a little better.

I would send you sunshine, but there is no sun today in Southern Finland. So I will just send you good thoughts.

Most enjoyable, Rinka, singing and playing.

Thanks for the warning about the noise at the end. I make a habit of watching my videos from start to finish after recording before uploading and often find I need to tidy something up.

Nice to meet you, Rinka. Your song was so pretty. I loved your vocals. I went back and read and watched your other posts. I encourage you to keep on playing, even in difficult times. You will be happy you did.

Haha! I jumped at the end - even with your warning, :grin:

Beautifully played and sung Rinka. Well done, keep doing what you’re doing.
Perhaps reframe your camera next time so we can see your fretting and strumming hands. That way you’ll get tips on playing technique and others can learn from you too.

Rinka, this gave me chills. This is a great performance. And you have a beautiful voice that compliments this beautiful song really well. In fact, I may start working on this one myself. Thank you for the inspiration and thank you for the “LOUD NOISES” warning. :wink:

Would love to see your guitar when you play because if I learn this song, I wanna do it the way you did. Bravo.

Hi Jeff, thank you for the very kind comment :smiling_face:
I played this song using the F-shape bar chord across the fret, I like it better than the open strings, bar chords just always sound fuller :wink:
