Rhett Miller - Question chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
many people love this song, just like I do. I guess most of us know it from epic Scrubs.
I never really liked the tabs around here, I tried to fiddle around with DropD and
tuning my b-string to c etc. but it never sounded like the original. Now I finally 
figured it out. I need to get this perfect because I want to propose to my girlfriend with this
song :) She loves it.

I guess we were all put off by thinking the song starts on a C, which is does in terms
of the note, but not in terms of the chord-"shape" you play. Also, there is the nice (and
very common) step down to the C/B chord and the Am that just makes us not doubt for a 
second that these as starting chords.

Yet, he must tune his guitar a whole step down so that the "Wonderwall"-Em-chord 022033
becomes his low D chord. The rest goes like this, and I think it sounds absolutely like
the original. Everything falls into place, suddenly the nice little steps up and down 
work easily.

Note that the tuning is half step down but chord names are relative to normal tuning.
