Q. Hi. My friend seems to think there's a bagpipe in Every Teardrop is a Waterfall. She claims it's a bagpipe when Jon plays solo with electric guitar. She was so certain about her being right that I got suspicious, so please tell us whether it's a bagpipe or a guitar. Thanks a lot.


The Oracle replies:

Bagpipes? Wow, I've never been asked that before or heard anyone mistake the guitar for them. Now I listen again, I can sort of see why your friend could think that but no, there are no bagpipes on that track or any other Coldplay song.
