This is one of my favorite songs to sing and play on the acoustic.

It's the Coldplay bside Help Is Round The Corner!

Normally this song is in open C# tuning just like God Put A Smile Upon Your Face, 
but I figured out a way to get almost the exact same results with a capo and
tuning your E down to C#.

Ok so first tune your low E to C#.

Now grab your capo and put it on reverse,
so that the first five EBGDA strings are capo'd on the first fret.

Make sure you have the low C# uncapo'd and that everything rings out clearly without buzzing.

Notes are NOT tabbed relative to the capo!

So 1's on the first 5 strings are opens on the capo. 

Now here are the chords!

With a headache, and a heavy heart
      C#                      C#6

        C#                   C#6    
And I'm sat here, licking my wounds
        C#                               C#6    
And I'm shattered, but it really doesn't matter

I'd say it's pretty accurate, although I had to compromise a bit with the C#/G# chord,
because the actual chord in this tuning would be impossible to play. :(

Enjoy! =D

Really good work, but i cant get a grip of hitting the C# string at the 5th fret with the F#m7 chord, maybe my hand isn't fully grown yet:p (don't know if that is a valid excuse) Yet again Great work it blended in perfectly with the real song.
