For this activity, I was aiming to inform the audience on how to play Coldplay’s song A Rush of Blood to the Head, off of their second album. To achieve this, I wrote the procedure for the song and the chords, as seen above. Because just the chords would not be enough to communicate how to do this, I also recorded myself playing the song and guiding the viewer through the steps.

Through all of this, I believe I have achieved this goal. The video was excellent not just for the chords, but for the timing of the strums of the guitar was well. I also stated in the video that this song is for guitar players that have mastered the basics of guitar playing.
