I cannot, for the life of me, figure out the chords!!! Someone pleaaase help!

Re: Need I remind you - Major League

He has a capo on fret 3 and I think he's tuned 1/2 step down. So if you are using standard tuning, put your capo on fret 2.

Using the capo as the nut (fret 0) I think the intro and verse is:
>A weird C#5 (x46600)
>Esus4-E (022200 - 022100)
>A weird B5 (x24400)

He's using the B and high e strings (open) as ______ notes.  I don't know what they are called in this context but it means that you keep them as part of the chord even though they don't belong.  (Same thing that happens on those two strings on Wonderwall, i.e. to play it as Noel Gallagher does keep them fretted on 3 throughout.)

Starting at 0:38 it sounds like he alternates between Asus2 (x02200) and E.  At 1:00 on ("this") he uses that funky B5 to resolve back to the pattern of the intro.

Anyway, that's my ear.  Good luck with it.
