There is also another way to play the first part:

It goes:

e|-
B|-
G|-5-8-7^^-3-5-8-7-5
D|-
A|-
E|-

This is just another way to play the intro and it's the way my band plays it. Well, gotta go! The song is perfect. Also, about the 7^^ part, it slowly bends and returns just like mR_Man5oN said it does! :)
