* i think Liams guitar is tuned down to Eb so use a capo on the 1st fret.  
or just use normal tuning.

* listen to the song to get the rhythm

Intro E, D, E, D, G, D, E, B/F   which can be just looped also

This is looped through the Intro / Verse,
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|----------5--5------5--------5--5----5--------5--5--5/7--------------------|
E|--0----0--------------0--0-------------3----3-------------0--2--2--2-------|

E       D              E     D	               G
         better to be       bigger than the other
D                         E     B/F
heart on your sleeve       and hat on your head
E        D               E       D			G
          i want to see       you playong with your shadow
D	     E    B/F
Hypnotise me      with every step

Play some notes out of Em Pentatonic or similar (then loop it in reverse)
E|12--12-12-12---------------------------------------------------------------|
B|------------15-15-15-15-12-12-12-12----------------------------------------|
G|-----------------------------------14--14--14--14--12--12-12--12-----------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

sounds like theres an arpeggio in reverse too!
E|----------15--19--15-------------|
B|------17--------------17---------|
G|--16----------------------16-----|
D|---------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------|

What is that b/f chord that you have there? Is that a split chord? Does anyone know how to play that?
