Comments are welcome.

Post chorus:
(this is just like the verse except the first time he plays an F 
instead of Dm)

|3-----------------3-------------|3-----------------3-------------|
|4-----------------4-------------|4-----------------4-------------|
|--------------------------------|--------------------------------|
|--------------------------------|--------------------------------|
|----------3---------------3-----|----------3---------------------|
etc.,  into the verse

I like to start strumming these chords in the outro. Instead of 

--2--   Use 	--0--  
--3--		--3--	
--2--		--0--
--0--		--4--
----		--5--
----		-----

For guitar 2 strum the same chords voiced mostly openly with capo 
on 1st fret. Relative to capo:
verse: C#m - A - E - Esus2 (or add 9, mess with it)
chorus: A - E - Esus2;  A- E- Esus2- B
post chorus: E - A- E - Esus2; C#m - A- E - Esus2

Awesome tab. Fun to play. I'm not convinced about the [03045-] chord though.
