Fadd9 does not need the A string muted; the A string should be open:

Fadd9
e|---3----
B|---1----
G|---2----
D|---3----
A|---0----
E|---1----

^this is still doable by wrapping the thumb around.

The chorus is probably more accurately played with a simple C Major, but with the pinky down on the 3rd fret on the 1st string:

C
e|---3----
B|---1----
G|---0----
D|---2----
A|---3----
E|---x----

Thus, Caddb9 is not necessarily used.

The final F in the main riff is probably more accurate with the G string plucked open, instead of the indicated 2nd fret:

F
e--------------------|
B-1---1---1---1------|
G----0---0---0---0---|
D--------------------|
A--------------------|
E-1------------------|
