  Okay, so at 0:38, these chords are just strummed. At
  0:40, they are finger picked, and if you listen to
  the song it’s easy to figure out. Jorma is playing the
  same notes as Paul, just an octave higher. They are strummed
  at 0:45.


Different Verse: (play until 1:17)
    0:49          0:51              0:54         0:56

The bass solo is in D Dorian- it involves A and G, moving slowly up to B, C and then D. 

At 1:34, play the original verse. At 1:46, play the chorus. At 1:59, start the different 
but hold the notes longer, until the bass solo at 2:07. At 2:36, play original verse, 
3:30, play solo in D dorian.
