Standard tuning, capo on one. I have also done the chords for this, but I felt the need to do the tab as well.
Not too complex!
For the "I am falling down the stairs" part, I am slightly unsure as the guitar is faded into the background.
If you don't like what I've put (fair enough) then just play full chords.
For the part where it transitions to F, I've done what the acoustic guitar does (it's kind of in the background)
There is another bass-y instrument playing simple arpeggios over the guitar.

I've done parts for Vega's acoustic and kind of merged them with the electric. 

THIS IS THE ALBUM VERSION OF THE SONG. Other versions will vary.

Chords
Em  022000
D   xx0232
C   x32010
F   133211
G   355433
Am9 x32000
Bm7 x24232

If you ONLY want the acousic guitar part, ignore all the asterisks, ^'s and places where it says guitar two!
An asterisk (*) means that an electric guitar (also called guitar two) does this riff in the background.
