    I dont have a copy to hear the chords you are refering to but I'm pretty sure that's Steve Lukather (TOTO) playing guitar on that tune and She's a Beauty ( which is him and Mike Landau )

    Man, I used to play that song everynight back in the early 80's.

    Today, I have no recollection except I think it was in E Major.

    And, I'm not having any luck find a tab for you.

    I think it's A maj B/A E/A
    Verse is A to B
    Chorus is: E/G# /Asus2 /C#min / Asus2
    _________E/G# / Asus2 / D / B

    I know the verse part... but durint the chorus part on the E he's doing something similiar to the A Part on the verses.... ugh.... dunno if that makes sense.... and he's plucking the chords on the
    "you wont even miss when I'm gone" its something like Aflat to Amaj to Dflat to Amajor.... just not sure notes he's picking... I'll give it another try tonight, just having a hard time hearing it...... thanks for the help though..

    I know somewhere in that part he plays a chord that's like a A/C#,. Similar to this...

    --x--
    --5--
    --6--
    --7--
    --4--
    --x--

    I would be a perfect chord after a D Major chord for a decending phrase...like

    D | A/C# | Bm | etc...

    I seem to remember that chord, or that fingering in there somewhere, whether it's an A chord or not I don't remember.

    If I mess around on guitar tonight I'll pick it back out and give you some hints.

    thanks I'll mess with that tonight also, I'm pretty sure the open E 1st string rings through each chord... since that first one you posted has an E on the second string that could be a possibility......

    I messed with this before leaving for work today. I just picked it out from memory, not listening to anything. Here's what I have for the "you won't even miss me when I'm gone" part...and this is the basics...

    || G#m | A | C#m | A | G#m | A | D | B ||

    The G#m could also be, and I think it is, an E/G#. Where G# is played in the bass below an E Major chord.

    The C#m chord could also maybe be a A/C#. Where C# is playing the bass below a A Major chord.

    It ought to get you in the ballpark.

    I'd have to hear it again to see exactly what specific notes he picks (if it's arpeggiated rather than just chorded), but the chord progression for that section (in the key of Emaj) would be:

    E2 / A add2 / C#m / A add2
    E2 / A add2 / D add2 / B B

    E2 = 2nd inversion - an E, but with G# instead of E as the 'bass' note; in other words, the triad would be G#-B-E instead of E-G#-B

    E /G# is 1st inversion
