I think electric guitar intro and chorus parts go like this: G F C D Em D C------------------------------------------------------------------------------|------------------------------------------------------------------------------|----------5-5-5/7-7/9--9-9--9\7\5---------------------------------------------|--5--5/3--5-5-5/7-7/9--9-9--9\7\5---------------------------------------------|--5--5/3--3-3-3/5-5/7--7-7--7\5\3---------------------------------------------|--3--3/1----------------------------------------------------------------------|
and hit these bar chords on their respective parts as well:Bm Am D/C---same as D---- ----|---- ----|---- ----|-9-- --7-|-9-- --7-|-7-- --5-|You can also hear another guitar doing an arpeggio with the minor chords whenthey start with Em, Bm toward the verse/intro end.
