Gimme a shout (via email) if you need help figurng this out, 
I'll send you slow sound clips.

This is the Lead guitar part (yes, theres a lead guitar part) and main chord progression

Some parts are probably totally wrong, and are probably played differently,
but this is how I would play it with the most amount of ease, because It is
very simple to limit hand movement by not switching positions.  Also, use your
pinky fingerfor all the 8's in the Intro and Bridge, even for the pull-offs.
The chords over the verse are repeated throughout the song, and they are there
to clarify the timing... The notes are played at the chord changes.
The Lead in the Verse is only played during the second half (3rd and 4th time
the acoustic playes the chord progression)

Capo On 2nd(so 5 would actually be 7 frets from the top of the neck)
           (and there is a reason, for chord strumming)

Chord Progression: Asus,Em,G,D,Asus
