Guitar Tab - "The Scientist (Acoustic)" by Coldplay

Click Below to Watch and Listen to:

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.
