Permission to post tab from Neil Hogan.
Following is from tab book.

“In Because, notes with stems down (bass
notes) are not all played with the thumb.
Many notes in the lower voice are really
harmony notes and played with right hand
fingers.
In measure 27, the D#m7-5 chord is played
using the 1st finger to fret notes on two
different frets.  The tip of the finger 
plays the D# on the 5th string while the 
base of the finger plays the A on the 1st
string.
Measure 37 has a bar on the 11th fret while
also playing the 1st, 2nd and 3rd strings
at the 14th fret with the 4th finger.
In the last measure, the notes on the 1st
and 2nd strings are played with the 3rd and
4th fingers so they can be held down while
playing the hammer-on below them.  I know
it’s not easy, but who said guitar playing
was supposed to be fun?”...Neil Hogan

(OBTW...try open 4th string as first note
in measure 9 vice as written...didn’t want
to fool with your tab Neil...but its sure
easier my way!! :-)  Jim
