(next part after intro goes to 3/4)(this part is played one through over the 3 chords, then stays on the B after that) (A)E|5h7-5---------------------------------------------------------------|B|-----8p7-5-5h7--5-5h7-5---------------------------------------------|G|------------------------7p6-4-4h6-4-4h6-4---------------------------|D|------------------------------------------7p6-4-4h6-4-4h6-4---------|A|------------------------------------------------------------7-5-4---|E|------------------------------------------------------------------5-|

then the rest is over the B chord I believe. here's the next little riff he does.
E|-----------------------|E|------------|B|-----------------7h9p7-|B|-9h11p9-----|G|------9h11p9-----------|G|--------9p7-|D|7h9p7--------9p7-------|D|------------|A|-----------------------|A|------------|E|-----------------------|E|------------|
(repeat once, then play the part before that again) Then, on the first (above the waves....) play a B major on the 7th fret on every 3rd beat. and a C# major > B major at the last (above the waves....). On the next time around, instead of playing the B on every 3rd beat, it goes B > E, B > E alternating every other 3rd beat, until the last (above the waves...) where its a G#m > F# major. (If all this details just confuses you, just listen to a tape and listen for the chord changes.:) then the song drops into F#m, where Jon comes in with this riff.

(now, after the jam, when it comes back into this section, you're basically playing the same thing as above, until right before the D-A-G-A part, where you play over these chords: F#m F Bb E A. After the last A, it goes into the D-A-G-A.) This is a simple D, A, G progression. Play the D on the 5th fret, the A also on the 5th, and the G on the 3rd. Figure out the rhythm and all that for yourself, cause its pretty simple. :)

then he comes back in with that same intro riff for 2 measures (i think), then he does something like this. (note: he first starts this a octave higher, but its much easier to learn it this way first)

(then, just repeat intro riff)
