[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/w/who/behind_blue_eyes_tab.html ]
Now the arpeggio changes to strumming, the pattern of which I won't try  
to notate, due to my lack of skills in transcribing on computer.  In the  
beginning each chord is just a quarter note followed by another, which is tied  
to a pair of eighth notes.  There are quite a few changes in this pattern so I  
advise listening to the recording, which I assume is almost a given in using  
TAB, anyway.
The chords are:
Cadd9(x32030), D(xx0232), D/F#(2x0232) (Using the thumb for the base  
note is probably the easiest way, albeit classically improper way to form this  
chord.) G (320003), C/G(3x2013), D/A(x00232), E(0221000), A/E(0311xx),  
Bm(x24432), C(x32010), Dsus4(xx0233) and Asus2(x02200).  Many of these are the  
same chords as were arpeggiated in the earlier sequence.  The chord changes in  
this pattern go: Cadd9, D, D/F, G, C/G, G, Cadd9, D, D/A, E, A/E, E, Bm, C, D,  
A, D, Dsus4, D, Asus2.  Again, listen to the recording, as some of these are  
strummed for several measures, while others are merely quick changes lasting a  
quarter note.
Now, it returns to the arpeggiated sequence, with "No one knows what  
it's like, to feel these feelings.  Skip the first couple bars of the intro and  
begin on the Em.  The pattern is nearly identical to the first time played, but  
note the changes between the arpeggiation each time the Dsus4 chord comes  
around.  After playing the arpeggio a couple times go back to the chord  
strumming bit, and then to the break, which is in double time:
           hold bend|------|release bend

e---------------------------Now, the bridge with the guitar playing chords
B--T----12-12-12------------in this order: E5, Bm, A, E, Bm, G, D, Bm, A, D,
G--A-----9--9--9-----9------Bm, A, E, Bm, A, E5, B5, A5, E5, Bm, G, D, Bm, A,

A---------------------------A, G, D, B, A, G, D, E... and then into an arpeggio
E--------------------------0of a B/A (x0444x), and then back to the main  
pattern to close.  During the brige there is a second guitar playing the solo,  
which I promise to include tomorrow, I haven't time tonight.
