There's hardly any guitar in this song, or any chords for that matter! As the keyboard
is playing practically single notes throughout with the bass following it,
the closest you'll probably get to playing this song on guitar (that's if you'd ever want to,
it's hardly a song fit for playing live)is if you play the keyboard notes as 5th chords,
if anyone has a better way of transcribing this then please let me know!

the little guitar riff Hugh plays (the only thing that seems to be at normal speed) is:

E------------------------------
B------------------------------
G------------------------------
D---6--------------------------
A-------7----7-9-7-5-----------
E---------------------7---5----
