Guitar (Jonny Buckland): Standard Tuning

Please note: This is the album version. I used the live video of the song to figure out 
this tab, but Jonny
varies the order of the riff parts, when he plays it live. So I took the both parts and 
put them in the correct
order of the album version. The guitar part in the verse is only played live. I think on 
the album there're
only a few keyboards/synths for this part.
That's all: Have fun!
