This uses a few chords remembered from seeing a transcription from Christian Korbanka somewhere but 
that only applies to where the chords are 6's instead of just majors etc. The rest if my own devising.

Excellent, thanks for the chord diagrams, I didn't know what they were on the Oasis version, 5 Stars :)

I believe Eb6 is actually played as Cm7.

I watched the video of someone who plays it perfectly (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IEcYc8j1wHo)and from this video I believe the Gm to Eb6 part (bass walkthrough) goes something like this (roughly) :

Gm Gm/F# Gm/F Gm/E (Eb)Cm Cm7(Eb6)
e -3--------3-----------3-----------3-------------3---------3---------3-
B -3------3---3-------3---3-------3---3---------3---3-------4-------4---
G -3----3-------3---3-------3---3-------3-----3-------3-----5-----3----
D -5--5-----------4-----------3------------(5)--------------5---5------
A -5--------------------------------------7-------------(6)-3-3-------
E –3-------------------------------------------------------------------

The 2nd time just play an Eb chord x6534x instead of Cm and Cm7.
Gm/F as written here can also be called the Bb6 chord.

this guy here plays different chords from his old songbook, I don't know if they are correct or not (especially Am7 instead of Cm when it says "forever" just before the break) : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r4fU6O4mpGE

Can someone please tab the solo part ? thank you
