Coldplay - Sparks

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 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.
