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!!!
