This bottom staff of the acoustic guitar figure is roughly strummed in a
Dylanesque way. The chords with the note on the high E string and mostly
upstrokes. Note that while this figure appears in the verse, it does not
appear in the keyboard solo section (which comprises the usual verse figures
for the electric guitars, leading me to believe this was probably Amanda
Brown's contribution to the arrangement, alternating from acoustic to keys
for the solo).

This isolated bar is best put here as a lead in to the main solo as it 
begins
one bar before the established guitar pattern it plays over (it appears at
the tail end of gtrs 1 & 2 Fig. 3).

* The asterisks above (only for this solo) indicate a sweep, impossible
  to tab in the limited space I have. Before the 10th note on the B string,
  however, there are two notes played lightning fast on the keys leading up
  to it. To replicate the effect on the guitar, it's probably easier to 
sweep
  the 10th frets on the D and G strings in a percussive way.

SONG BREAKDOWN:

Intro: Intro Elec. Gtr 1 (2 beats lead in only) then...
       Elec. Gtr 1 & 2 Fig. 1 (equalling 8 bars)

Note: singing begins (the words "Tallulah took a") on last bar before Fig. 2
      begins. I don't know the technical name for this type of lead in but
      it's a cleaner structure to demarcate the verses as I do in favour of
      guitar patterns.

Verse ("Shower for an hour.."): Elec. Gtr 1 Fig. 2 + Acous. Gtr Fig
                                               (equalling 10 bars)

Pre-Chorus ("What she's missing..."): Elec. Gtr 1 Fig. 1 & Elec. Gtr 2 Fig. 
2
                                                                     (8 
bars)

Chorus ("You tell me..."): Elec. Gtr 1 & 2 Fig. 3 (8 bars)

Verse 2 (Makeup needs a shake-up..."): same as before (10 bars)

Pre-Chorus: as before (8 bars)

Chorus 2: same but twice in length (equalling 16 bars)

Solo: Elec. Gtr 1 Fig. 2 (10 bars) + keyboard solo (beginning last bar of
            Chorus 2).

Pre-chorus: same as before (8 bars)

Extended chorus outro: repeat chorus gtr figures until fade
