Coldplay - The scientist

[ A r t i s t ][ Coldplay (UK) ] [ S o n g ][ The scientist [05:11] ] [ A l b u m ][ A rush of blood to the head (2001) ] ================================================================================= [ T a b b e r ][ Goran Kalamiza from Bjelovar, Croatia (wes7boiler@hotmail.com) ] [ T u n i n g ][ E-A-D-G-B-E (both the acoustic and electric guitar) ] ================================================================================= [ ! N O T E ! ][ I´ve transcribed the intro part on piano for acoustic guitar. ] [ ! R e a d ! ][ You can play it in E-A-D-G-C-E tuning on acoustic guitar too, ] [ ! t h i s ! ][ it´s easier to play and it sounds better. ] I saw Coldplay live at "Tonight with Jooles Holland" show. This is how they play this song (except the piano part, I just transcribed it for guitar), especialy the electric guitar part at the end of the song. I saw it with my own two eyes so believe me, that´s the way how they play it. If you wanna play whole piano part in normal tuning, just play the first fret of the B-string instead opened C-string ( C¤[-0-] = B¤[-1-] ) [[[ I n t r o / v e r s e ( o n p i a n o ) ]]] E¤[---------------------------------|---------------------------------] C¤[-------------------------------0-|---------------------------------] G¤[-2---2---2---2---3---3---3---3---|-2---2---2---2---0---0---0---0---] play this D¤[-3---3---3---3---3---3---3---3---|-3---3---3---3---3---3---3---2---] 6 times, A¤[-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-1-1-1-1-1-1-1---|-3---3---3---3---3---3---3---3---] E¤[---------------------------------|-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-] E¤[---------------------------------|---------------------------------] C¤[-------------------------------0-|---------------------------------] G¤[-3---3---3---3---3---3---3---3---|-2---2---2---2---0---0---0---0---] play this D¤[-3---3---3---3---3---3---3---3---|-3---3---3---3---3---3---3---3---] 2 times A¤[-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1---|-3---3---3---3---3---3---3---3---] E¤[---------------------------------|-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-] E¤[---------------------------------|---------------------------------] C¤[-------------------------------0-|---------------------------------] G¤[-3---3---3---3---3---3---3---3---|-2---2---2---2---0---0-----------] D¤[-3---3---3---3---3---3---3---3---|-3---3---3---3---2---2---3---3---] A¤[-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1---|-3---3---3---3---3---3---5---5---] E¤[---------------------------------|-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-] E¤[---------------------------------|---------------------------------] C¤[---------------------------------|----------Start-playing----------] G¤[-0---0---0---0---0-----------0---|----------chorus-chords----------] D¤[-2---2---2---2-0-2-----------2---|-----------on-acoustic-----------] A¤[-3-3-3-3-3-3-3---3-----------3---|-----------guitar-here-----------] E¤[---------------------------------|---------------------------------] [[[ C h o r d s o v e r t h e s o n g ]]] F Bb C C7 Dm E¤[---1----|---6----|---8----|---8---|---10---] B¤[---1----|---6----|---8----|---8---|---10---] Hold the frets G¤[---2----|---7----|---9----|---9---|---10---] on the low E-string D¤[---3----|---8----|---10---|---8---|---12---] with your thumb A¤[---3----|---8----|---10---|---10--|---12---] E¤[---1----|---6----|---8----|---8---|---10---] ( these are samples of how to play each chord ) Chorus: F, Bb, F, F (repeated) Dm, Bb, F, F Verse: Dm, Bb, F, F (repeated) Prechorus: Bb, Bb, F, F (repeated) C, C7 [[[ E l e c t r i c g u i t a r p a r t ]]] F Bb E¤[---------------------------------|---------------------------------] B¤[---------------------------------|---------------------------------] G¤[---------10--------------10------|---------------------------------] D¤[---------10--------------10------|-10--12--12--10--12--10--12--10--] A¤[-12--12--12b-12--12--12--12b-12--|-12--12--12--12--12--12--12--12--] E¤[---------------------------------|---------------------------------] F F E¤[---------------------------------|---------------------------------] B¤[---------------------------------|---------------------------------] G¤[---------10--------------10------|---------10--------------10------] D¤[---------10--------------10------|---------10--------------10------] A¤[-12--12--12b-12--12--12--12b-12--|-12--12--12b-12--12--12--12b-12--] E¤[---------------------------------|---------------------------------] Dm Bb E¤[---------------------------------|---------------------------------] B¤[---------------------------------|---------------------------------] \ G¤[---------10----------------------|---------------------------------] | D¤[---------12--------------12------|-10--12--12--10--12--10--12--10--] | A¤[-12--12--12b-12--12--12--12b-12--|-12--12--12--12--12--12--12--12--] | E¤[---------------------------------|---------------------------------] | \ play this F F / 4 times E¤[---------------------------------|---------------------------------] | B¤[---------------------------------|---------------------------------] | G¤[---------10--------------10------|---------10--------------10------] | D¤[---------10--------------10------|---------10--------------10------] | A¤[-12--12--12b-12--12--12--12b-12--|-12--12--12b-12--12--12--12b-12--] / E¤[---------------------------------|---------------------------------] ( A¤[-12b-] = bend 12th fret on the A-string for a 1/2 tone )
