It's an open B5 chord that slides down two fingers to an augmented 4th(B+4?). You have the open B, a B on the G str, and two fretted F#'s that slide down to F's.

The open 5 is also central to Heaven Help.

I personally love the song. I don't understand why its almost everyone doesn't like it.

I Love it. It's a cool tune. Granted, it was kinda a buzz kill to witness live but there are some killer versions out there.

This is a very interesting tune. No one I know liked it at first listen, probably hated it. It really gets out there though, opens up some doors that you might not want to look behind, but at least you know they are there. I dig it.
