Coldplay-"The Scientist" (Acoustic) Chris Martin and Jonny Buckland Tabbed by: Jake Machado My e-mail for questions or comments: jake_machado22@yahoo.com I thought I'd try to tab out this video from Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch'v=jkMGf2_NKvs ------------------------------------------------------------------------- The Key of F Major (I think.) Guitars tuned to E,A,D,G,B,C Tune high e string down to c "[ ]"= one measure. "( )"= previous chord continued. AKA ghost notes. Here are what I think the chords are that Chris Martin plays in this video: (E,A,D,G,B,C) Dm7----10,12,12,10,10,0 A#/Bb--6,8,8,7,6,0 F------1,3,3,2,1,0 Fsus2--1,3,3,0,1,0 C------8,10,10.9.8.0 Intro- [ F ][ F, Fsus2 ]x1 Verse- Dm7 A#/Bb F Come up to meet you, tell you I'm sorry.
You don't know how lovely you Fsus2aaaaaaaaaDm7aare. (Dm7) A#/Bb F I had to find you, tell you I need you,
tell you I'll set you Fsus2apaaaaaaDm7aart. (Dm7) A#/Bb F Tell me your secrets, and ask me your questions.
Oh lets go back to the Fsus2staaaaaaaaDm7aaart. (Dm7) A#/Bb F Running in circles, coming up tails,
Fsus2 A#/Bb heads are a science apaaaaaaaaaart Chorus- (A#/Bb) F Fsus2 A#/Bb Nobody said it was easy. Oh it's such a shame for us to part. (A#/Bb) F Fsus2 C Nobody said it was easy. No one ever said that it would be this haaaard. (C stopped) F Oh take me back to the start. Interlude- [ F cont'D ][ A#/Bb ][ F ][ F, Fsus2 ]x1 Verse- Dm7 A#/Bb F I was just guessing at numbers and figures.
Pulling your puzzles Fsus2apaaaaaaDm7aart. (Dm7) A#/Bb F Questions of science, science and progress.
Do not speak as loud as my Fsus2hearrrrrDm7rrrrt. (Dm7) A#/Bb F So tell me you love me, or come back and haunt me.
Oh and I rush to the Fsus2staaaaaaDm7aart. (Dm7) A#/Bb F Running in circles, chasing our tails.
Fsus2 A#/Bb Coming back as we aaaaaaaaare. Chorus- (A#/Bb) F Fsus2 A#/Bb Nobody said it was easy. Oh it's such a shame for us to part. (A#/Bb) F Fsus2 C Nobody said it was easy. No one ever said that it would be this hard (C stopped) F Oh take me back to the start. (Here is where Jonny Buckland comes in. He just strums open strings with his finger on the 12th fret on the A string. Then when they get to the 3rd measure, or "f" he bends that 12th fret on the A string to a 3/4 bend and release to standard pitch. He bends the string four times each measure of [ F ] and [ F, Fsus2 ]. AKA the third and fourth measures. I know it's confusing, just watch the video carefully and you'll get it.) Interlude- [ F cont'D ][ A#/Bb ][ F ][ F, Fsus2 ]x1 Outro- [ Dm7 ][ A#/Bb ][ F ][ F, Fsus2 ]x1 Dm7 A#/Bb F Fsus2 Oh, oooooooo, oooo-oooo-oooo, oooooooooooo Dm7 A#/Bb F Fsus2 Oh, oooooooo, oooo-oooo-oooo, oooooooooooo Dm7 A#/Bb F Fsus2 Ah, oooooooo, oooo-oooo-oooo, oooooooooooo Then Chris Martin by himself for last part. Lowered volume of guitar too. End on a downstroke of "F". Dm7 A#/Bb F (Downstroke) Oh, oooooooo, oooo-oooo-oooo, oooooooooooo
