Standard Tuning

There aren't many parts to this song, so I am going to outline the main riffs.

Put lots of reverb on and let everything ring. Fingerpicking until the ending, where I pick up a plectrum
but Joe doesn't.

12* = 12th fret harmonic


Main part of intro/outro:
                                                   Variation 1           Variation 2
e||-----------------|-------------|--------------||--------------------||-----------------12*---||
b||-----3---2-------|-----0---0---|-----0----0---||--12*-12*-12*--7*---||--12*-12*-12*--12*--7*-||
G||-----------4-----|-------------|--------------||-----------------7*-||-----------------------||
D||-------------4---|-------------|--------------||--------------------||-----------------------||
A||-2-------------2-|-------------|-0-----0----0-||--------------------||-----------------------||
E||-----------------|-3-----3---3-|--------------||-0---0---0---0------||-0---0---0---0---------||

Second variation of the main pattern (appears in the outro and half way through the intro)
                                                           Final variation of the harmonics 
                                                           (only appears in outro)
e||-----------------|-----1-0-------0-|-------------0----||-----------------------------------------||
b||-----3---2-------|-------------3---|-----0---1/3------||-------12*-------12*-------12*-------12*-||
G||-----------4-----|-----------------|------------------||---7*--------7*--------7*--------7*------||
D||-------------4---|-----------------|------------------||-----7*--------7*--------7*--------7*----||
A||-2-------------2-|-----------------|-0-------------0--||-----------------------------------------||
E||-----------------|-3---------3-----|------------------||-0---------0---------0---------0---------||

Ending before bridge part/before outro (I think the dirty bass note is keyboard, but distortion and tremolo
on guitar sounds good):

e||-0--------------||
b||-0--------------||
G||-0--------------||
D||-2--------------||
A||-2--------------||
E||-0--------------||

Bridge:

Initially

e||---|-------------0---||
b||---|-0---2---3-------||
G||-2-|---------------2-||
D||---|-----------------||
A||-0-|-2---0---------0-||
E||---|---------3---0---||

Gets louder ("I've discovered a man…")

e||---|-------------0---||
b||---|-3---2---3---0---||
G||-2-|-4---2---0-----2-||
D||---|-----------------||
A||-0-|-2---0---------0-||
E||---|---------3---0---||
