E-mail: forkontheright@msn.com Thanks to Zachary (1st version of the tab) for providing the template... hope he doesn't mind. Guitar's in standard tuning... a rarity for Coldplay, I must say. Still some different chords though...I'm giving them semi-standard names because I have no clue what they are really called. The Chords: B B* G#* G#*add5 Fmajor E e| 7 7 0 0 2 0 b| 7 7 0 0 2 0 G| 8 7 4 6 3 1 D| 9 8 6 x 4 2 A| 9 9 6 6 4 2 E| 7 7 4 4 2 0 Verse 1: B B* From the very start, it G#* (G#*add5) Came a-part and, B* B* G#* Broke up into pieces and...
