For the intro, check out the tab already posted by Martin Mc Taggart- it's
a pretty accurate one. I have to say, in my defence for posting these chords,
my guitar has the two top strings missing as the guitar bridge broke in two
last week(!) So, that's my excuse for any of these chords being inaccurate. 
I think this is pretty spot-on though, and remember if you agree- then
give me a rating!
