Newton plays this live on a baritone set to this tuning (low to high) : Bb F Bb Eb F Bb,
which is just DADGAD on a baritone. Don't try to retune your guitar, the strings will
be far too floppy for you to play!

Instead, to play along with the record, tune to DADGAD and put a capo on 4, then play
the tab as normal!

Check out this video of Newton to see how to play it:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tpfz9Gs7wRI (note that the ending from the record isn't 
played on this vid)

The * is when he slaps the string with his thumb when he plays to get the slight
percussive feel.

I can't get the percussive slapping. Is it at the same time as the note it played?

Any advice, I love this song!

Yes, you play slap with your right hand as you play the notes. Check out this live version (played on a baritone) to see how he does it. He starts slapping after about 1:20 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tpfz9Gs7wRI
