G|-0----0----0--------|
D|-2----0----0--------|
A|-2----3----2--------|
E|-0----x----x--------|




for the rest it plays around with these chords

           E  A  D  G  B  E
Cadd9      x  3  2  0  3  3
G          3  2  0  0  3  3
Em7        0  2  2  0  3  3

Just looked it over

Missing an open note on the 3rd stirng under(2:02) and "so" you tell yourself.

also the 4th note in the 2nd bar, underneath "violent roar" should be an open on the 2nd string, not the 3rd.
