Cool interlude:  This is the best part of the song...Stuart calls the D
an Asus4.  His are good chords, but I think they are played up the neck.
Barre the A with your index finger.  The D and A use the same barre -
don't move your index finger between A and D.  The E is the same formation
as the D.  Slide up to the E the first time.  Neither E string is played
here.  Also, the consecutive D's are damped, that is, let up on the left
hand pressure after hitting the chords.  They also are slightly
off the beat - you'll just have to listen to the record.
