The Second and Fourth Verses – fingerpicked by Marr when playing live. This is the hardest part of 
the song, because there are so many guitar parts going on at the same time in the recorded version. 
Basically, for one guitar, you either fingerpick what Marr plays live or try to make out a combination 
of the prominent guitar parts from the recorded version. 

Here are tabs for: 
A) the recorded version, rhythm guitar 
B) the live version, fingerpicking

Option A (recorded version):         
    F#maj7                    D#m                /   /  (strike these two with emphasis)
