Death of a Disco Dancer

The intro bassline (and basically throughout the song) is:

   B      A      G#m    G          B      A      G#m    E

G --------------------------------------------------------------|
D -------------------------5-4----------------------------2-0---|
A -2----2-0----0---------------5--2----2-0----0---------------4-|
E ----2------0---4------3------------2------0---4--4p2p0--------|

Sometimes the bass changes a bit, but that is the basic bassline.
the lyrics are (and the same eight chord progression is constant throughout
the entire song):

    B          A     G#m    G
         B         A          G#m   E

Very nice.

I haven't researched it much and its very possible Johnny Mar is using open tuning, but it sounds to me that from halfway through the first verse he's playing the progression as:

B = x24400
A = x02200
G#m = 5x550x
G = 355400

And that Beatlesy ending jam sounds like:

Bm (x2443x) / A? x0443x / Gm7b5 4x043x / E

Please post if you have a better idea for the jam at the end.
