I can't test if this is right, but I'm gonna take your word for it since you own every tab.
But I thiiiink you could rename Eb/Ebass to Em7b5. Not positive though, that chord shape always confused me.

Thanks steinface! Sounds perfect to me when I play your chords . . .

Roger, you are right. The Ebass is Em7b5.

I am actually using two different finger positions depending on the part (#1 over verse #2 over chorus):

e|--0-- --6--
b|--3-- --5--
g|--0-- --7--
d|--0-- --5--
a|--1-- --x--
E|--0-- --x--
style: #1 #2

Also, I have tried to figure out the tremolo part over the 2nd chorus and here is what I have (incomplete and probably wrong):

e| --17--15--10--15--15--13-----------------
b| -------------------------------11--13--15--

Anyway, I don't have the ear you guys have but I want to at least feel like I am contributing:) Maybe others can correct or add to the above.

Jon
