Chorus
Intro / Verse (which is the outro as well =P)

At the end if you really want, he plays natural harmonics on the 12th fret I think which 
rather cool

For some of the chords you can add your ring finger to the G string (lol) on the fret 
the others. For example, 777800. I already put it on some because it sounds better like 
but you can just mess about with it and see what sounds best to you =]

BLG RULE!!! Peace out
