Do you mean part that comes at 0:32 (1:03 you can see fingerings) ? I used to play that that song w/my old band. I basically played the part Robben plays ... it is basically triads but the fingerings are a bit unusual on video. It goes something like this:

Code:

  F  G  Dm  G  F F#  G   C  G
   
|-5--7--10--7--5----------------
|-6--8--10--8--6--2--3-3-5--3---
|-5--7--10--7--5--3--4-4-5--4---
|-----------------4--5-5-5--5---
|-------------------------------
|-------------------------------


First two Fs and Gs are fingered w/ index finger bar and middle finger and Dmin is little finger bar chord.

Hope this helps!

that is exactly what i'm doing, albeit sometimes in 10th position... and sometimes with some ad lib alterations.

ok, how this, what do you do for the intro (Gsus)?
