Disturbance At The Heron House (Guitar chord)

#
From: Scott A. Yanoff

DISTURBANCE AT THE HERON HOUSE (published in NME, sometime in 1989)
{The main riff goes something like this:}

(B) --keep a finger on the 3rd fret
(G) ---2-0-(0)-4-2-2-2-4---0---
(D) -0-0-0-(0)-0-0-0-0-0-2---0-
(A) -every other time, play this string open...

{I'm pretty sure that Peter is just picking a Dsus2 chord throughout
the whole verse, but Mills is doing other "stuff" on the bass. I play
the chords Dsus2 and Dsus2/C just to make it interesting. I probably
should pull out McCabe's Guitar Shop and see what they did there, huh?}
