The Hardest Part Acoustic
The Hardest Part - Coldplay - X&Y

Huge shout-out to Charlie Edmonds for providing the chords

[Used tuning] Eb G# C# F# Bb D

The tuning is quite simple, have a standard tuning and tune down every string a halfstep down and on
top of that tune the high E string down a half-step again (you can play it just by tuning to standard and
tuning the high E string a half-step down)

[Intro]
 E  G#  C#  E  F#  G#

[Verse]
        E
And the hardest part
    B              D#            G#
Was letting go not taking part 
        E              B    D#   G#
Was the hardest part
        E
And the strangest thing
    B                D#              G#
Was waiting for that bell to ring
           E                B  D#  E*
It was the strangest start

[Chorus]
   E*              B      F#    E     
I could feel it go down
                    B           F#      E
Bittersweet I could taste in my mouth
                  B         F#     
Silver lining the clouds
       G# F# E D# C# 
Oh and I     -    I 
                            G#
I wish that I could work it out

[Solo]
G#  E  B  D# x2

[Verse]
        E
And the hardest part
    B              D#            G#
Was letting go not taking part
           E              D#    G#
You really broke my heart, oh
      E
And I tried to sing
      B                 D#        G#
But I couldn't think of anything
             E             B   D#  E*
That was the hardest part, oh, oh

[Chorus]
   E*              B     F#    E
I could feel it go down
             B                    F#     E
You left the sweetest taste in my mouth
                  B       F#
Silver lining the cloud
       G# F# E D# C# 
Oh and I     -    I 
       G# F# E D# C# 
Oh and I     -    I 
  C#                          D#
I wonder what it's all about
  C#
I wonder what it's all about

[Solo]
G# - E - B - D# x2 (the last time you play D# play it twice)

[Bridge]
             E    G# C#    
Everything I know is wrong
             E           G#     C#
Everything I do it just comes undone
                  E    G#  C#
And everything is torn a---part
                   E       
Oh, and that's the hardest part
           F#
That's the hardest part
                 E
Yeah, that's the hardest part
           F#              G#
That's the hardest part....

About the artist behind The Hardest Part Acoustic:

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]
