A chord diagramA augmentedA quick note on chords.  The actual name of the Fmaj7* is Fmaj7b5, which looks like this:

e| 0
A chord diagramBB| 1
A chord diagramG+G| 2
A chord diagramD MajorD| 3
A chord diagramA augmentedA| 0
A chord diagramE MajorE| x

As played here, you could call them C-Cmaj7-C (without a 3rd/5th for the A chord diagramC majorC and no 3rd
for the A chord diagramCmaj7Cmaj7) and F5-Fdim-F5 (no b3rd for the A chord diagramFdimFdim).

As they're plucked here, it's easier to just make the C/Fmaj7 shape respectively and
lift up your index finger for the major 7th.  That also allows you to do John Darnielle's
cool little extra bits.  You can also choose to pluck the A chord diagramG+G string with a third finger.

Here's the progression.  These progression is fingerpicked.
e|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A chord diagramBB|---1--0--1----1--0--1----1--0--1----1--0--1-------------------------------|
A chord diagramG+G|--(0)(0)(0)--(2)(2)(2)--(0)(0)(0)--(0)(0)(0)------------------------------|
A chord diagramD MajorD|--------------3--3--3-----------------------------------------------------|
A chord diagramA augmentedA|---3--3--3---------------3--3--3----3--3--3-------------------------------|
A chord diagramE MajorE|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Simple enough, right?  Sir Darnielle throws in little flourishes that shouldn't be too
hard to do.  Just keep making that C-esque shape and pluck around some of the other
strings too.  If you can figure out a single note run that sounds good, do it.
