This is a simplified way to play the song, just with an acoustic guitar.
The original key is Abm, Am on the traditional half step down tuning.   
The key of this arrangement is Em with capo put on the 4th fret.  


These are 2 often-used bass run patterns.  
Pattern 1.
           Am              Em
e|---------|---|---------------|---|
B|-------1-|-1-|-1-----------0-|-0-|
G|-------2-|-2-|-2-----------0-|-0-|
D|-------2-|-2-|-2-----------2-|-2-|
A|-----2-0-|-0-|-0---------2-2-|-2-|
E|-0-3-----|---|-------0-3---0-|-0-|
         slur                slur 

Pattern 2.
  Am/B   C
e|-----|---|
B|-----|-1-|
G|-----|-0-|
D|-----|-2-|
A|-0-2-|-3-|
E|-----|---|


And these are easy voicings for some of the tricky chord progressions in the song.   
   Am   Am/G F#m7-5
e|------------------|
B|-1-----1-----1----|
G|-2-----2-----2----|
D|-2-----2-----2----|
A|-0-----x-----x----|
E|-------3-----2----|
  B7-9    B7
e|-x-------x--------|
B|-1-------0--------|

D|-1-------1--------|
A|-2-------2--------|
E|-x-------x--------|

Can we find peace in that holy sea?
