On the album, John strums along (in  the left channel, clean) with the
chords shown  above,  whilst  Michael  (in  the  right  channel,  with
distortion), aside  from  the links between the verses and fills shown
below, plays mostly  power   chords  as  shown  above. The alternative
chords are fuller chords that you can use if playing it by yourself.

Note also that Michael's  part  on  the  first  and  third line of the

chorus goes like this:
  + + + +   + + + +   + + + +   + + + +
|----0---0|----0----|----0---0|----0----|

|---------|---------|-2-------|---------|
|-2-------|---------|-2-------|---------|
|-2-------|---------|-0-------|---------|
|-0-------|---------|---------|---------|

If you want to improvise your own  links  and fills you will note that
Michael uses A chord diagramE MajorE major pentatonic all the way.
