Hi,

I know one of Gaga's live guitarists quite well. The intro riffs when played live are synth only until the start of "If only fame had an..."

The bit that both her guitarists play is quite fun too upon the start of this line, its roughly what is quoted, but is partially muted;

(I use / to symbolise a slide, I'm not good at writing tabs just good at playing!)

E|-------------------------|------------------------------|
B|-------------------------|------------------------------|
G|-------------------------|------------------------------|
D|-----5--5--5--3--3--3--1--1-|-1/2-1/2--1--1--1--1--1--1-|
A|-------------------------|------------------------------|
E|-------------------------|------------------------------|


There's another bit in the middle eighth, when played live, coinciding with the end of a repeated "touch" usually.
It's roughly the same 'chords' as the chorus, excuse the poor tabbing below, but I'm sure you can work it out;

G 5 8 10 | 5 8 5
D 5 8 10 | 5 8 5
A 4 6 8 | 5 6 4

Plus at the end Gaga spells out ARTPOP on the O and P there's a slightly muted A5 powerchord played.
