intro: bass guitar riff - notes: E G Bb A G

intro guitar riff:

[Bm] [Bm7] [Bm] [Bm7] [Am] [Am7] [Am] [Am7]

E|-7---7--7--7---7--7---5---5--5--5---5--5---|
B|-7---7--7--7---7--7---5---5--5--5---5--5---|
G|-7---7--7--7---7--7---5---5--5--5---5--5---|
D|-7h9-7--7--7h9-7--7---5h7-5--5--5h7-5--5---| <- play twice
A|-9---9--9--9---9--9---7---7--7--7---7--7---|
E|-7---7--7--7---7--7---5---5--5--5---5--5---|


at the end of the second time playing the intro riff, a second guitar plays the
following fill:

E|--0---|
B|--9^--|
G|--9^--| <- strum while bending entire chord up and down.
D|--9^--|


A|------|
E|------|


NOTE: There is no static pattern in Hugh's guitar playing during the verses, in each verse
he plays different fills. I've tried to get each verse as accurate as possible.

verse 1:
