Capo
2nd fret
based on live performance. in performances, it looks like 
he has a capo on the 2nd fret, and playing it a semitone 
lower than the cd, but on the cd, he definitely 
goes down to open low E string, so i'm not sure

the intro tab is played by the piano, every 2nd note 
sounds like it might be a delay effect.

the tab in the last chorus, this is very low in the mix, the notes may be off.
