I tabbed this quite a while ago, and no one cared lol, but here it is. It's not the whole thing, but just the jist of it. I have my guitar tuned down 1/2 step, just so you know to adjust accordingly:

First part: pick an open chord, let it ring to get the effect
e---------------------------------------------------|
B---------------------------------------------------|
G---------------------------------------------------|
D---------------------------------------------------|
A---------------------------------------------------|
E----0----------------------------------------------|

Play this sort of intermittently, and a little muted. Make sure to play more of the B string than the e.
e-----12-------------------------------------------|
B-----10-------------------------------------------|
G---------------------------------------------------|
D---------------------------------------------------|
A---------------------------------------------------|
E---------------------------------------------------|

Piano tabbed for guitar: x4
e---------------------------------------------------|
B----12---10---9---7----10--9--7---5----------|
G---------------------------------------------------|
D---------------------------------------------------|
A---------------------------------------------------|
E---------------------------------------------------|

More piano, maybe guitar, maybe synthesizers... i dunno
e-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B----15--14~---10--12---15--14--10--10--12--15--14--12/7--|
G-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E-------------------------------------------------------------------------|

During the verse, play this:
e-----12-------------------------------------------|
B-----10-------------------------------------------|
G---------------------------------------------------|
D---------------------------------------------------|
A---------------------------------------------------|
E---------------------------------------------------|

Later versus play something like this:
e-----12-------------------------------------------------------12|
B-----10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-9-9-9-9-12-12-9-9-10-|
G-------------------------------------------------------------------|
D-------------------------------------------------------------------|
A-------------------------------------------------------------------|
E-------------------------------------------------------------------|

Bridge: something like this x2
e---10--8-7-8-7-5-7-5-3-2--------------------|
B---------------------------------------------------|
G---------------------------------------------------|
D---------------------------------------------------|
A---------------------------------------------------|
E---------------------------------------------------|

Chorus: Not so sure about this... maybe 2 guitars?
e----------------------------------------------------10-10-10--12-12-12-14-14-14-10---|
B----12-12-10--12-12-10-12-12-10-12-10-----------------|
G-------------------------------------------------------------------|
D-------------------------------------------------------------------|
A-------------------------------------------------------------------|
E-------------------------------------------------------------------|


Try that and see if it works, there are a few parts missing, but it's a great song.

No, I am not the specialist... The really sad thing is that this is only my 2nd tab, and I don't think it's that good and isn't the whole song lol, who would want to steal it????

oh yes, you schould write him a nasty email! so many people steal tabs and then they say they're theirs. i remember once someone sent me an email and said that i should remove my springsteen-chords/ tabs from my website because they were his. but hey, i tabbed them a long time ago because no tabs existed from those songs... i never removed them and he never sent me an email again because i said to him that most of his stuff is stolen from very many people and that made him quite angry - so it's quite "important" to complain!

Hehe, I sent an email to this specialist person... and also to their web admin. We'll see if they do anything. I just told them to give me credit.

Update: They have given me credit for the tab. They were nice about it, too. So everything is good.
