a few points of interest..the part of the song immediately before 
and after the solo where the chords are played C G C G C
you will hear what sounds like a slide so I play it like this

-0-0-0-0--3-3-3-3-0-0-0-0--3-3-3-3-0-
-1-1-1-1s-3-3-3-3-1-1-1-1s-3-3-3-3-1-
-0-0-0-0--4-4-4-4-0-0-0-0--4-4-4-4-0-
-2-2-2-2s-5-5-5-5-2-2-2-2s-5-5-5-5-2-
-3-3-3-3s-5-5-5-5-3-3-3-3s-5-5-5-5-3-
-0-0-0-0--3-3-3-3-0-0-0-0--3-3-3-3-0-

So basically you slide the C position towards the 
G barred Chord to get that slide sound..the fingering isnt 
in the same form so youll have to change position fairly fast

Also..any point in the song where he goes from an F to a Dm
There are two notes you hit in between these chords
youll notice where on the song when you hear it..its around 
the part where he sings "I've been"

-1-1-1-----1-1-1
-1-1-1-----3-3-3
-2-2-2-----2-2-2
-3-3-3-3-2-0-0-0
-3-3-3----------
-1-1-1----------

So that's basically it..pretty easy song but oh so good
