E DComments: I've updated the intro/verse ("main") progression to show the correct timing. In doing so, I've simplified it only to a rhythm overview. There are slides, palms/mutes and double strums mixed in there, but you should be able to figure out the interpretable details more easily without me complicating the picture. The sliding between G, A, D/F# and D/F#, G, and back up to Bm should be intuitive if you look at the formations. To get this down, I recommend using 2 figured chords with the Bm and D/F# using middle (on 6th string) and ring (on 3rd string) and G and A using index (on 6th) and ring (locked on 3rd). The correct way (Dave's way) is to use E-form bar. Since I am not Dave, nor trying to be, I use only 2 fingers out at a time and it is still a really fun and quick moving pattern. Additionally, my sloppy, fat fingers are really good about accidentally muting strings. Well, here you WANT to mute out the 5th and 2nd strings (so, job accomplished). For the muted 4th string, I have found that it doesn't sound bad left open. I think I'm starting to prefer it this way actually. Going back to my 2-finger suggestion, if you start out by picking, simultaniusly, the 6th and 3rd strings with your thumb and middle finger (respectfully) then you will hear the song unfold. When the light goes off, grab a pick and start strumming.
