This part is actually whammy bar vibrato, going from the 4th fret to the 3rd fret and
back and forth. I'm not sure how to tab whammy stuff, so this is how to do it without
a whammy bar. It's a bit confusing to read, but it's just hammering on and pulling off:

Great tab man, however you have made a typo that may put others off-track. I am certain that the main (verse) chords Kevin plays are:


e|-6--8-----6/8-6/8--------|
B|-6--8--8--6/8-6/8--8--6--|
G|-6--8--8--6/8-6/8--8--6--|
D|-4--6--8--4/6-4/6--8--6--|
A|-------6-----------6--4--|
E|-------------------------|

Wow, you are totally right! I don't know how I missed that! I'll fix it up when I get some time. Thanks for pointing it out to me.

Also, I think the very last chord in that sequence is actually a C#maj7 rather than a C# major chord.

I can't believe that I've been playing it wrong this whole time! D'oh!:p
