"transatlanticism" by death cab for cutie

hi everyone, this took me a very long time to figure out, but im sure i got it!(the solo 
the chords)

chords used:

A, C#m, Dsus2, F#m
(every second time through that, play a quick E chord after the Dsus2)

after he says "oh no" strum a distorted Dsus2.
and then do this little solo thing: (/ means slide up)

after that, play a distorted Dsus2 again.

sometimes during the "i need you so much closer" part,
the chords are:A, F#m, E, Dsus2.(thats also when he says, "so come on"
and other times when he says that, the chords are:F#m, C#m, Dsus2, E.

well, i hope you found this as useful as i did.

I'm also unsure about the F#m, but I do believe that the C#m is actually just an inverted C#5 (4466xx). If I can figure out the fourth chord, I'll repost.

little hard to understand, try organizing information better.

Ok, yes, about it being intermediate that's just silly. But oh well.

F#m is right. The E goes AFTER the F#m.
And patunox, when writing out chords, "x" is used to show it's not played :\. True in guitar tabs it means it's muffled but he didn't write it in tab format except for the overdriven D riff.
