Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
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!

 E|--1--------1--------1--------1--------1-------x--------|
 B|--2--------2--------2--------2--------2-------6--------|
 G|--1--------3--------1--------3--------3-------6--------|
 D|--3--------3--------3--------4--------1-------6--------|
 A|--4--------4--------4--------x--------1-------8--------|
C#|--0--------0--------4--------5--------2-------7--------|
    C#       C#6      C#/F     F#M7     D#7sus2 C#/G#


C#                           C#6    

C#                           C#6    

C#                           C#6    
Stuck here, in the middle of nowhere
       C#                    C#6    
With a headache, and a heavy heart
      C#                      C#6    
Well, nothing was going quite right here
        C#                     C#6    
And I'm tired, I can't play my part

C#/F F#M7
          Oh, come on, come on
           D#7sus2
Oh, what a state I'm in
F#M7
     Oh, come on, come on
             D#7sus2
Why won't it just sink in?

     C#           C#/F       C#/G#
That help is just around the corner for us

     C#           C#/F       C#/G#

    C#                 C#6    
Oh, my head won't stop aching
        C#                   C#6    
And I'm sat here, licking my wounds
        C#                               C#6    
And I'm shattered, but it really doesn't matter
         C#                      C#6    
Cause my rescue is gonna be here soon


C#/F F#M7
          Oh, come on, come on
           D#7sus2
Oh, what a state I'm in
F#M7
     Oh, come on, come on
             D#7sus2
Why won't it just sink in?

     C#           C#/F       C#/G#
That help is just around the corner for us

     C#           C#/F       C#/G#

     C#           C#/F       C#/G#
That help is just around the corner for us

     C#                      D#7sus2

     F#M7                    C#/G#          C#
That help is just around the corner for us





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.

this is good, but I personally I would change the D#7sus2 a little, and I like to hit the C#/G# differently too: E|-----1-------x--------| B|-----2-------0--------| G|-----3-------0--------| D|-----5-------0--------| A|-----1-------8--------|C#|-----2-------7--------| D#7sus2 C#/G#
