Ok... This tab was a pain in the ass. During the verse and intro parts where the
B chord is being picked, the constant B root note is somewhat awkward to play and
as such, I would leave out every second instance of it, unless you can manage it.
The entire bridge part, I'm only 90% sure of. It's very hard to hear exactly what
the guitar is doing with everything going on. If anyone thinks they've got it figured
more accurately, by all means submit a correction. If anything else seems
incomplete/inaccurate, please let me know.

Then: G - F#
      Am - G - F# - F

For the last prechorus, just hit each chord once, until the normal picking
pattern comes back in later on.

Then the chorus twice and play the second part of the intro.
