A|-77777777-4444444-2222222-4444444-|-77777777-44444444-|
E|-55555555---------0000000-2222222-|-55555555----------|

then strum the open E chord again alot of times....alot!

now just play the intro again and sometimes you can hear some sort of Hammer On 
every once in awhile at the end on the D string like an D|--56h7h

Great first tab. Not really a big deal but when you play the E note in the intro on the B string, you could also hit the open 6th string to give it a little character. Just an option, i like the sound of it.
