[Song Structure]

[Intro] (x2)
[Verse]
[Break 1]
[Break 2 (x2)
[Break 3] (Played the same as Intro - x2)
[Break 1]
[Verse]
[Break 2] (x2)

There are easier ways to play Break 2 but I was getting the best tone from my
guitar when I played it in this position. This is also how Albert appeared to 
be playing this when I saw them in Chicago.

great tab but i think the chord progression in the intro is F#-D#m-A#m-D#m. I'm not 100% sure but pretty sure anyway cos it's sounds that the 3rd chord is minor. Anyway you've done excellent work and this is a 5 star tab!!!
