6th fret
Hi everyone, just found a really good chord structure for this great song by coldplay,
the fourth song on their first album 'Parachutes' released in 2000. I've tabbed quite a
coldplay songs so if you want me to give you the chords to any others, please feel free 
email me on joshhj@btconnect.com and i'll see what i can do for you.

Happy playing!

The Tuning is EADGBd

And you'll need a CAPO on the 6th fret.
