A quick note on chords.  The actual name of the Fmaj7* is Fmaj7b5, which looks like this:

e| 0
B| 1
G| 2
D| 3
A| 0
E| x

As played here, you could call them C-Cmaj7-C (without a 3rd/5th for the C and no 3rd 
for the Cmaj7) and F5-Fdim-F5 (no b3rd for the Fdim).

As they're plucked here, it's easier to just make the C/Fmaj7 shape respectively and 
lift up your index finger for the major 7th.  That also allows you to do John Darnielle's 
cool little extra bits.  You can also choose to pluck the G string with a third finger.

Here's the progression.  These progression is fingerpicked.
e|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---1--0--1----1--0--1----1--0--1----1--0--1-------------------------------|
G|--(0)(0)(0)--(2)(2)(2)--(0)(0)(0)--(0)(0)(0)------------------------------|
D|--------------3--3--3-----------------------------------------------------|
A|---3--3--3---------------3--3--3----3--3--3-------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Simple enough, right?  Sir Darnielle throws in little flourishes that shouldn't be too 
hard to do.  Just keep making that C-esque shape and pluck around some of the other 
strings too.  If you can figure out a single note run that sounds good, do it.
