Not bad but not amazing either.The verse definitely goes like this (each note is one strum, listen to the song for timing)Em, Em, Em, D, Em, Em, G, A (repeat) And the little riff is:

EDIT: Sorry for the mess up on the tab but it gets the idea across nonetheless. Its the 4th position of the Em pentatonic scale.
