Snow Patrol - The Lightning Strike tab

Tab by Fiachra.
Tuning: Standard.

So this is a work in progress, I started it today because i just cant find any full tabs 
the song and i want to keep it
posted as i work on it in the hope that if anyone has any corrections or any of the 
parts we can can combine and
hopefully come up with a complete version of this epic song!

Theres a keyboard, a piano, two guitars, a bass, a percussionist, a drummer, various  
instruments and at least
three sets of vocals on the track..so going to need all the help i can get to try and 
a complete and finished version please!!

Part 1,
What if this storm ends?

Chords the whole way through this first part: Gm F C A#sus2|-------3--------------1---------------3--------------1-----------------||-------3--------------1---------------5--------------1-----------------||-------3--------------2---------------5--------------3-----------------||-------5--------------3---------------5--------------3-----------------||-------5--------------3---------------3--------------1-----------------||-------3--------------1------------------------------------------------|
There is also a lead bit that goes like:
|------------------------------------------------||---15------11-----13----------------------------||-------------------------8/10-------------------| x4|------------------------------------------------||------------------------------------------------||------------------------------------------------|
Part 2, The Sunlight through the flags.
This bit is repeated through out the section:|-----------------------------------------------------||-----------------------------------------------------||--13--11------13--11------13--11------13--11---------||----------11----------11----------11----------11-----||-----------------------------------------------------||-----------------------------------------------------|
Another lead comes in over it on keyboard but I just havent got that yet.
The chords: E5 X8 Eb aug5 X4 C#5 X4|-------------------------------------------------||-------------------------------------------------||------9----------------8----------------6--------||------9----------------9----------------6--------||------7----------------6----------------4--------||-------------------------------------------------|
Another lead bit:
Repeat as necessary:|---12--9----------12--9--------------------------||----------12--(9)--------12--(9)-----------------||-------------------------------------------------||-------------------------------------------------||-------------------------------------------------||-------------------------------------------------|
I dont have the distorted guitar yet either. Part 3, Daybreak.
Chords: (repeat through the whole section) D X16 G X16|------3--------------------------3----------------||------2--------------------------3----------------||------3--------------------------0----------------||------0--------------------------0----------------||---------------------------------2----------------||---------------------------------3----------------|
I suppose you could fingerpick it to make it more mellow like the track? Something like:
|----x---------x---------x---------x--------------||------x---------x---------x---------x------------||--------x---------x---------x---------x----------| X2 for the D chord|-x----------x---------x---------x----------------||-------------------------------------------------||-------------------------------------------------|
|---x---------x----------x----------x-------------||-------x---------x----------x----------x---------||-----x---------x----------x----------x-----------| X2 for the G chord|-------------------------------------------------||-------------------------------------------------||-x---------x----------x----------x---------------|
Then at 11:50 or "somethin was bound to right sometime today" come in on asecond guitar with the D, E and G power chords: D5 X14 E5 X2 G5 X16|--------------------------------------------------||--------------------------------------------------||-----------7------9-------------------------------| X4|-----------7------9---------5---------------------||-----------5------7---------5---------------------||----------------------------3---------------------|
D5 X16 G5 X16|-------------------------------------------------||-------------------------------------------------||-----------7-------------------------------------| X4|-----------7---------------5---------------------||-----------5---------------5---------------------||---------------------------3---------------------|
Then back to: D5 X14 E5 X2 G5 X16|--------------------------------------------------||--------------------------------------------------||-----------7------9-------------------------------| till finish.|-----------7------9---------5---------------------||-----------5------7---------5---------------------||----------------------------3---------------------|
