The Scientist Guitar Lesson – Coldplay


“The Scientist” is the second single from Coldplay’s second album, A Rush of Blood to the Head. It reached number 18 on Billboard’s Modern Rock Tracks.

The song is originally performed on piano, but sounds great on guitar as well. This guitar lesson on Coldplay’s Scientist will teach you the acoustic strumming version, which you’ll be able to play along with the song.

To play in key, you’ll need to place a capo at fret 3. From there on, it’s easy, since you’ll be strumming basic chords found below and in the video tutorial.

The Scientist Lyrics

Intro

Verse 1
Come up to meet you, tell you Im sorry, you don’t know how lovely you are
I had to find you, tell you I need you, tell you Ill set you apart
Tell me your secrets and ask me your questions, oh lets go back to the start
Running in circles, coming in tales, heads are a science apart

Chorus
Nobody said it was easy, it’s such a shame for us to part
Nobody said it was easy, no-one ever said it would be this hard
Oh take me back to the start

Verse 2
I was just guessing in numbers and figures, pulling the puzzles apart
Questions of science, science and progress, do not speak as loud as my heart
Tell me you love me, come back and haunt me, oh and I rush to the start
Running in circles, chasing our tales, coming back as we are

Chorus
Nobody said it was easy, oh it’s such a shame for us to part
Nobody said it was easy, no-one ever said it would be so hard
Im going back to the start

Outro
Oh – ooo-oo-oo-oo-ooo
Ah – ooo-oo-oo-oo-ooo
Oh – ooo-oo-oo-oo-ooo
Oh – ooo-oo-oo-oo-ooo
