Dropping high e to c? Help with Coldplay song

14 April 2009 - 08:28 PM

I picked up the guitar again after not playing AT ALL for over a year, and my hands are in all sorts of aches and pains, but that's beside the point.

I was looking at this live radio studio performance from coldplay, and also managed to find that someone tabbed that performance (for the song "the Scientist"), however something struck me as a little odd.

Youtube video:

I can manage to play these chords, however, with just muting the Low E string. It would be easier to barre the fret on these chords, but apparantly (according to just some dude who tried to figure this out himself) the high c string needs to be played open.

Can someone offer a suggest as to how to play these chords, and/or look at the video and offer a suggestion (maybe with even a different or standard tuning) on how to play it like Chris Martin does in the video?

Help is much appreciated, and thank you in advanced to all.

Here is the score below...

CODE
guitar is tuned to 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
