Help Is Round The Corner Tab
This is one of my favorite songs to sing and play on the acoustic.

It's the Coldplay bside Help Is Round The Corner!

Normally this song is in open C# tuning just like God Put A Smile Upon Your Face, 
but I figured out a way to get almost the exact same results with a capo and
tuning your E down to C#.

Ok so first tune your low E to C#.

Now grab your capo and put it on reverse,
so that the first five EBGDA strings are capo'd on the first fret.

Make sure you have the low C# uncapo'd and that everything rings out clearly without buzzing.

Notes are NOT tabbed relative to the capo!

So 1's on the first 5 strings are opens on the capo. 

Now here are the chords!

 E|--1--------1--------1--------1--------1-------x--------|
 B|--2--------2--------2--------2--------2-------6--------|
 G|--1--------3--------1--------3--------3-------6--------|
 D|--3--------3--------3--------4--------1-------6--------|
 A|--4--------4--------4--------x--------1-------8--------|
C#|--0--------0--------4--------5--------2-------7--------|

I'd say it's pretty accurate, although I had to compromise a bit with the C#/G# chord,
because the actual chord in this tuning would be impossible to play. :(

Enjoy! =[ch]D[/ch]

About the artist behind Help Is Round The Corner Tab:

Coldplay are an English alternative rock band formed in London in 1997. The group comprises vocalist/pianist/guitarist Chris Martin, lead guitarist Jonny Buckland, bassist Guy Berryman, and drummer/multi-instrumentalist Will Champion. Coldplay has been one of the most commercially successful bands of the new millennium, selling over 30 million albums. The band is also known for its hit singles, such as "Yellow", "Speed of Sound", the Grammy Award-winning "Clocks" and their latest single, "Viva La Vida".

Coldplay achieved worldwide fame with the release of their single "Yellow", followed by the success of their debut album, Parachutes (2000), which was nominated for the Mercury Prize. Both Parachutes and its follow-up, A Rush of Blood to the Head (2002), were released to commercial success; the latter was named NME's Album of the Year. X&Y (2005) received a generally positive reception. From December 2006, the band worked with producer Brian Eno on their fourth studio album, Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends, which was released on 12 June 2008.

Coldplay's early material was compared to acts such as Jeff Buckley,[1] U2, and Travis.[2] Since the release of Parachutes, Coldplay have drawn influence from other sources, including Echo and the Bunnymen[1] and George Harrison[3] on A Rush of Blood to the Head and Johnny Cash and Kraftwerk for X&Y.[4] Coldplay have been an active supporter of various social and political causes, such as Oxfam's Make Trade Fair campaign and Amnesty International. The group has also performed at various charity projects such as Band Aid 20, Live 8, and the Teenage Cancer Trust.[5]
