The Scientist - Coldplay

The song "The Scientist" is the second single from the British alternative rock band Coldplay's second album - A Rush of Blood to the Head.

In class we will play this song with a capo at the 3rd fret.

If the Bm7 chord is difficult for you, just replace it with a D chord.

At first, keep the strum simple.  Four down strums (one on each beat) is all you need.

I suggest you download the song into your itunes (see link below).

Here is a video you can practice with.  I am strumming down on all four counts.  In between the counts (the "and") I am hitting a bass note.  On beat four I am playing Down, Down Up (4 and a).
