E chords.  I marked this as D-D-A-A-E-E.  These sound fine as open chords.  While the
is sung, you can strum the top three strings of an E chord. For the chorus, play C#m, D E as barre chords. Right after the chorus, Andy Summers does a barre chord slide from to E three times - denoted as D/E. This part ain't easy! - stodman
