Theres been a LOT of dispute as to how Chris actually plays the intro to this song. He 
use some form of tapping, but to make life easy im not gonna bother working that bit out, 
im gonna give you the way i play it, with no tapping. Also theres the question of whether
its in dropped D or not, personally i dont bother coz it sounds fine played in this 
but feel free to play it dropped D:

Intro/Verse: (play this bit kinda quietly)

Repeat chorus and bridge bit. In the live versions, in the bridge bit they
change the notes after a couple of times to this:

G|---------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------|
E|-6--x--13--x--10--x--7--x--4--7--|

And then back again. After that bit its just a D note at 5th on A-string
until the bass stops for piano solo.

After solo, it goes back to the quiet intro bit:

G|-------------------------------------------|
D|-0-12-12-0-12-12-0-12-0-12-12-0-12-0-12-12-|
A|-------------------------------------------| x5

G|--------------------------------------|
D|-0-7-7-0-8-8-0-9-0-11-11-0-11-0-11-11-|
A|--------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------|

Then straight into the Chorus, and then play bridge bit to finish.
