E----------------------------------|-------------xxx-3---xxx-5-------|

Keep in mind that the strummed chords (x) at the end of the bars are
played continuessly with the 1st chord of the beginning of the riff.
I also play the strummed chord (upstroke, downstroke, upstroke) and
very rapidly.


Chorus:

  PM......................| 
      (play this bar 3x)

I think they change the pick-up or turn on an effect on the 3rd x.
On the 4th x replace last bar with:

Just play the sequence sustaining each chord:

then:
