    The Acoustic Part:

     

    The first thing you need to do is re-tune the strings to E A B G B D#;

    this then allows you to play the following chords (the names of which may

    well be wrong!):

     

          Bmaj     Badd11     F#6      Emaj7      G#m    F#m7add11

    D#|----0----|----0----|----0----|----0----|----0----|----1----|

    B |----0----|----0----|----2----|----0----|----0----|----0----|

    G |----8----|----9----|----3----|----1----|----2----|----2----|

    B |----0----|----0----|----4----|----0----|----2----|----2----|

    A |----9----|----9----|----4----|----2----|----x----|----x----|

    E |----7----|----7----|----2----|----0----|----2----|----2----|

    (These are easier to play if you use your thumb to fret the notes on the E

    string)

     

    And the song goes:

     

    Intro:      [B, Badd11] (x2)

     

    Verse:      [B, F#6, Emaj7] (x4)

     

    Chorus: [Emaj7, G#m, F#6] (x3), then Emaj7

     

    Verse

     

    Chorus

     

    Verse

     

    Middle: (same chords as verse progression; play twice)

     

    Outro:      B, F#m7add11, Emaj7

     

     

     

    The Electric Part:

     

    The bit on the electric guitar is (supposedly) in standard tuning

    (ie. E A D G B E), and therefore, to play along with the chords above, the

    chords need to be played as below (not sure if these are right):

     

          Bmaj     Badd11     F#6      Emaj7      G#m    F#m7add11

    E |----x----|----0----|----2----|----0----|----4----|----2----|

    B |----4----|----4----|----4----|----0----|----4----|----2----|

    G |----4----|----4----|----3----|----1----|----4----|----2----|

    D |----4----|----4----|----4----|----1----|----6----|----2----|

    A |----2----|----2----|----x----|----2----|----6----|----2----|

    E |----x----|----x----|----2----|----0----|----4----|----2----|

     

     

    In addition, below is the riff used in between sections of the song:

     

    (N.B. b = bend string; r = release bend; ~ = keep string bent;

    / & \ = slide up/down)

    E |-----------------------------|-----------------------------|

     

     

    And (finally!) this is the little lick that gets played over the chorus:

     

          Emaj7                   G#m        F#6

    E |--16--16--16--16--16--16--16--16--|--16--16--16--16--16--14--14/16--|
