The part you can't figure is that the "mini-solo"?

I see it as this:

D|-12-14-15-17-15-14-12-|

then

H|---------17
G|------16
D|---15
A|14

Correct me if I'm wrong

Correct me if I'm wrong, but H isn't a real note, so I think you are wrong

I see the verse going like this:


e|----------|-------------
B|----------|-------------
G|--9--9-9--|9------------
D|--9--9-9--|9------------
A|--7--7-7--|7-23-2h3p2p0-
E|00-00-0-00|-0-----------
PM.. .. . .. .

I dunno... maybe I'm wrong but that's just how I hear it.
