Newton Faulkner - Longshot
Tuning (low to high) - DGDGAD

Played with palm mute on the strings until the final chorus.
On the record it sounds like the second verse has some extra notes, e.g.
   1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +
D:-----------------|
A:-----------------|
G:-----------------|
D:---77--77--77--77|
G:-7---7---7---7---|
D:-----------------|
but he doesn't play it on the live versions on YouTube ( 
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=irHFGPRzJvA )
[Note that on the video he's playing on a guitar tuned lower than this, but the capo 
makes it the same tuning so you can play along]
