This song has three guitars in it, one is a 12 string, which has a capo on the 2nd fret
and plays the top chords which are shown here in parentheses.  A 6 string guitar plays
the other chords and the lead.  Forgive me if there are a few mistakes/typos in here...
this thing was a pain to type out :p

This is where things get complicated....
The 12-string starts messing with picking patterns based around these chords:
        Am   E7   G   D9   F   C   Dm   E7

The 6 string playing the chords begins playing what the 12 string was playing in the
intro, but without the capo.

The lead guitar starts playing this:
