Playing the mi-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-ind gueeerrilla
             Fmaj7   C/E          D9     D9/C

                           C         G6/B     Am    Am/G

Projecting our images      in space and in ti-ime      

{Chorus 2}
 C      D       G          G/F

PLAY RIFF THROUGHOUT THE VERSES


G6/B:  X20000 or X20030

Am/G:  302210     Fmaj7: 1X3210    C/E:  032010
D9:    XX0230     D9/C:  X3X230    G/D:  XX0433 

Suggestions from DiddyD:
Instead of Am/G a C/G (332010) works as well, I think I`ll play both.

The bass progression in the Chorus can be this, too:
G:   xx5433   
G/F: xx3033  
Em:  xx2000  (or xx2033) 
G/D: xx0003  (or xx0033)

Excellent effort. 5 stars.
The Am/G I play as C/G (332010) but it's a very subtle difference.
Just a suggestion, the bass progression in the choruses I would emphasise on the 4th string:
G (xx5433) G/F (xx3033) Em (xx2000) G/D (xx0003)
