OK TAKE NOTE OF THIS: they love to do these little fills here and there:

It's the 9-11-10 thing they use in those above lead parts.  They toss 
some of those fills in at 0:43, 0:57, and 1:09.  The only difference is 
they don't fade like they did in the beginning.

From: Fred Lidskog 
Subject: TAB: Champagne Supernova   by Oasis

"Champagne Supernova", written by Noel Gallagher, performed by Oasis.
Song can be found on the album "(What's the Story) Morning Glory?" and 
has been released in the U.S. as a single.

Note: There's a whole lot of stuff going on in this song (including 3
guitars), so I've tried to transcribe everything. The 1st guitar
(Bonehead) is acoustic-sounding during all verses and the 1st chorus and
plays with distortion only during the 2nd & 3rd choruses, the bridges, and
musical interlude. The second guitar (Noel) plays the intro solo and the
fills during all the verses and pre-choruses with a muffled effect, and
plays little solo parts with a dirty-sounding distortion. The 3rd guitar
(Paul Weller, I believe) steps in with a cleaner but heavier distortion to
play the guitar solo during the musical interlude.

[NOTE: Use this rythym and chord progression when playing all verses and 
the first chorus]

Tab Key:
s = slide
/ = long downward slide
b = bend (5b6 means bend the string at the 5th fret to make the note the
string would make at the 6th fret with no bend)
r = release bend
(H) = harmonic
h = hammer on
p = pull off
^ = let note ring while making the note "vibrate"

In the following places where "Riff 1" is listed, play this:

[NOTE: When trying to learn the guitar solo, I would suggest listening to
the song and learning exactly when the soloing guitar plays which notes
relative to when the rhythym guitar changes chords. Then, follow along
with this transcription to hear the rhythym of the fills and the riffs
during the solo relative to the chord changes.]
