Oedipus - Jack And Ginger chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Hello. This is my first time adding tabs/chords to UG.
This is Jack & Ginger by the band Oedipus. I transcribed it all by ear, watching 
live performances.

I'm not 100% sure about some parts (eg. arpeggiating in 2nd verse) but it seems to sound fine.

For strumming, check any live video. Generally you hit each chord only once in verse and 
repeatedly (eg. eight notes) in prechorus and chorus. For G# chords in second half of 
2nd verse you hit the bass string and then strum up from E1 to E6.

Chords used:
G#:       |x66544|
B:        |x24442| or |799877| (first version is only played in verses)
F#:       |244322|
C#:       |x46664|
A:        |x77655|
E:        |x79997|
G#m:      |466444|
