ok... first part of intro and verse go like this..
|---------------------------------|
|---------------------------------|
|---------------------------------|
|-----0---------------------------|
|---------9---9---4-4-7-4-----4---|
|-7-7---7---7---7---------5-5---5-|

also, in the end of the interlude the chord isn't..
-5- -5-
-5- it's -5-
-3- -5-
i'm pretty sure though not 100% :D
