(After the first verse other instruments add the third to C5)

Am/B
Shorthand for the altered dominant reflects the guitar voicing
Overall harmony is B7sus4b9

INTRO/VERSE:
(11-string guitar)
(12-string without the octave 3rd-string)

Each chord is a simple "power chord" rooted on the 5th-string
and played in conjunction with the open 3rd-string.
The picking pattern is consistent throughout - this would not
be the case using first-position chords.

Hold the  E5  pick the strings  5 3 4 5 3 4 5 3
Shift to  D5  pick again
Shift to  C5  pick same

   Em*               Dsus4             C5                C5
   1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +   1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +   1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +   1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +
E|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|

G|---0-----0-----0-|---0-----0-----0-|---0-----0-----0-|-----   /   -----|
D|-----9-----9-----|-----7-----7-----|-----5-----5-----|-----  / O  -----|
A|-7-----7-----7---|-5-----5-----5---|-3-----3-----3---|-----------------|
E|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|

The picking pattern continues in the second half of the verse
but the string combination changes.

   Am                B                 Em                Em
   1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +   1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +   1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +   1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +

   1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +   1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +   1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +   1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +

A|-----------------|-3-----3-----3---|-2-----2-----2---|-----------------|

INTERLUDE:
A couple of weird chords occur briefly...

|Daug        |Eb#9  Eb    |Ebaug       |E           |
                           E     Eb  -bass


Em-LICK:
   1  +  2  +  3  +  4  +    1  +  2  +  3  +  4  +
E|-------------------------|-------------------------|
B|-------------------------|-------------------------|  / = legato slide
G|-0-----------------------|-------------------------|  -  3rd-string rings
D|-2-/4--4-/5--5-/7--7-/9--|-9-/11-11/12-12/13-13/14-|      and retriggers
A|-------------------------|-------------------------|      randomly
E|-------------------------|-------------------------|

Without a 12-string this may be preferred:

   1  +  2  +  3  +  4  +    1  +  2  +  3  +  4  +
E|-------------------------|-------------------------|
B|-5-/7--7-/8--8-/10-10/12-|-12/14-14/15-15/16-16/17-|
G|-0-----------------------|-------------------------|
D|-------------------------|-------------------------|
A|-------------------------|-------------------------|
E|-------------------------|-------------------------|
