I saw them play last night, and I can say that most of those parts are not correct. Very close, and the tab sounds pretty good, but that's not how John actaully plays it. I'll see if I can get around to tabbing this sometime soon.

Hey, this is pretty good, that 075000 chord sounds better than the Em I used in my tab, I'm not sure about having the Em as the second chord in the intro/chorus though... I'm pretty sure it's a Bm or something close.

Em is the correct first chord. The second chord is a variation of a D/F#maj chord:

E|----
B|--3--
G|--2--
D|--X--
A|--2--
E|--2--
