The opening "riff" is just the F# chord (2nd fret position) with loads of
reverb, another way to get that "wavy" feeling from just
playing the one chord is to position your hand to play the F# as I've shown
you above, except hammer on the first-finger barre on
the 2nd fret to begin the riff (^ = downstroke. v = upstroke):

   F#  ^ v ^ ^ ^ ^ ^   do this twice; the second time the lead guitarist 
E|-----2-2-2-2-2-2-2 | (on tour, Johnny) plays:
B|-----2-2-2-2-2-2-2 | (4/5\4) just before the rhythm guitarist
G|-3---3-3-3-3-3-4-3 | (on tour, Craig Gannon) plays the next chords

[Verse 1]

         F#
I am the son and the heir
     A               B          F#
Of a shyness that is criminally vulgar
I am the son and heir
                        A B
Of nothing in particular


[Chorus]

D             A
You shut your mouth, how can you say
C#m E                 F#
I go about things the wrong way ?
     D                      A
I am Human and I need to be loved
C#m       E              F# F# F# A B
Just like everybody else does


[Verse 1]

         F#
I am the son and the heir
     A               B          F#
Of a shyness that is criminally vulgar
I am the son and heir
                            A B
Oh, of nothing in particular


[Chorus]

D             A
You shut your mouth

D             A
You shut your mouth, how can you say
C#m E                 F#
I go about things the wrong way ?
     D                      A
I am Human and I need to be loved
C#m       E              F# F# F# A B
Just like everybody else does


[Verse 2]

D                               A
There's a club if you'd like to go
               C#m      E          F#
You could meet somebody who really loves you
       D
So you go, and you stand on your own
A
And you leave on your own
        C#m              E
And you go home, and you cry
                 F# F# F# A B
And you want to die

D                              A
When you say it's gonna happen "now"
C#m          E            F#
Well, when exactly do you mean?
         D                  A
See I've already waited too long
C#m E           F#
And all my hope is gone


[Chorus]

D             A
You shut your mouth, how can you say
C#m E                 F#
I go about things the wrong way ?
     D                      A
I am Human and I need to be loved
C#m       E              F# F# F# A B
Just like everybody else does

He shows how to play it on youtube from the video 'It might get loud' and others. I know on record he uses a capo but he plays it on the video using his new signature model and a twin reverb with the tremolo on, E with an add on pinky finger on the 3rd string 2nd fret a couple of times, slides up to G then A, and back again.He makes it sound so good but your tablature does too. I have come to the onclusion that he definately plays it more than one way but to be honest, I'm playing your version.
