Just keep that tab going throughout the song (except the bridge).

The trick is to fret the A chord diagramBB and e strings 'the wrong way round' (i.e. pinky on
A chord diagramBB string, 3rd finger on e string) so you can slide down to the second fret on
the e string for the last beat in each bar (marked * above).

e.g. for a A chord diagramCadd2Cadd2 going to C(b5)add2 (second bar)

I think that's about it, any comments (or better chord names!) welcome.
