     When it's (unintelligible) ...

Chorus:
The chorus is a Cmaj chord at the third fret (3 3 5 5 5 X) with some picking
on the 3rd, 4th, and 5th strings (low to high), after which parts of the intro
repeat.  There might be a Gmaj in between the Cmaj and the Emaj-based part.
The bass is definitely going to a Gmaj, but it's hard to tell what the guitar
is doing (i.e. it doesn't matter :-})
The next verses are basically the same, with the first guitar playing different
fills and harmonics.

Someone else can figure out the bridge before the solo and the solo itself;
my fingers are tired.
