THE SCIENTIST (ACOUSTIC) - COLDPLAY
-----------------------------------


an incredibly simple but fantastic song to play on an acoustic guitar!

there seems to be a lot of confusion about the key of the song. 
it does state below that a capo is required, but for those that don't have a capo,
I have taken the liberty of putting a set of chords on which do not require a capo
and will allow you to play along with the cd.


(CAPO ON 3RD FRET)           (NO CAPO)


  Bm7 (x20202)            Dm7 (x57565)
    G (320003)             Bb (688766)
  G * (320005)
    D (xx0232)              F (x,8,10,10,10,x)
Dsus2 (xx0230)          Fsus2 (x,8,10,10,8,x)
Dmaj7 (xx0222)
    A (x02220)              C (x35553)
   A7 (x02020)             C7 (x35353)

V1:        come up to meet you, tell you i'm sorry, you don't know how lovely you are
          Bm7       G                    G * D                     Dsus2
           i had to find you, tell you i ne-ed you, tell you i'll set you apart
          Bm7           G                       G * D                   Dsus2
           tell me your secrets and ask me your questions, oh lets go back to the start
          Bm7         G                  G * D                 Dsus2
           running in circles, coming in ta-les, heads are a science apart



          G                      G * D               Dsus2
C1:        nobody said it was easy,   it's such a shame for us to part
          G                      G * D             Dsus2                 A
           nobody said it was easy,   no-one ever said it would be this hard
          A7                       (D)
           oh take me back to the start

           questions of science, science and pr-ogress, do not speak as loud as my heart
          Bm7          G                      G * D                 Dsus2
           tell me you love me, come back and ha-unt me, oh and i rush to the start
          Bm7         G                G * D            Dsus2
           running in circles, chasing t--ales, coming back as we are


          G                      G * D                 Dsus2
C2:        nobody said it was easy,  oh it's such a shame for us to part

           nobody said it was easy,  no-one ever said it would be so hard
          A7                      (D)
           i'm going back to the start

i would guess the only problem would be its not in the same key, so you couldnt play along with the cd, and the vocals would be different, but thats not a bad problem at all

Awesome, awesome tab. Sounds a lot nicer on an acoustic than playing in the same key as on the album.
