In the verses the ring finger stays on the 3rd string
throughout. From Am, move the middle finger to the 6th string
for the D7/F# (don't play 1st string), the Gadd9 is formed
with index finger off the 2nd string and little finger on the
6th string, the middle finger moves across to the 5th string
(don't play 1st string), then resolveback to the Am again.

In the choruses the little finger stays on the 1st string
through the C -G -D4 progressions. 

Am    = x02210   Em = 022000   D4      = xx0233
D7/F# = 20021x   C  = x32013   D       = xx0232
Gadd9 = 32020x   G  = 320003   Dadd9/4 = x54030

[At the end of Choruses: 
 Either play the 1st inversion D and D4,
 or slide up from the C chord to a Dadd9/4 to play the riff]
