I love this album, I reckon it's the best by Van the man, but there are some other great 
too.
I haven't put the guitar fills in, but they're pretty easy to figure out. This song is 
simple,
just this riff most of the time and some synth chords; easy stuff.
Check out my tab of Doctor Doctor by UFO (ver. 4), it needs rating, and I swear to god 
perfect
(though perfection by its very nature is flawed, so there could be some errors in the intro...)


Right, to business. You could use a capo for this song, I think he does, but I don't own 
and it's
pretty easy without. The first chord is D#, played open like this:
E|-3-|  ...in four successive semi-quavers, then a one-beat rest.
B|-4-|  It's the same rhythm for all the chords, just listen to the song,
G|-3-|  real easy.
D|-5-|
A|-6-|
E|---|
Second chord, you add the 2nd (or the 9th, it doesn't really matter, they're the same), 
you have
a shape like this:
E|---|  Non capo users: I recommend barre-ing with your index finger
B|-5-|  (obviously), holding the low D# on the A string with your ring
G|-3-|  finger, Pinkie on the 9th (B string), and middle finger on the G
D|-5-|  (D string).
A|-6-|
E|---|
After that it's a G# barre chord, and an A# barre chord, which I prefer to play like this:
E|---|  ...simply laying your ring finger across the third fret, 'coz that
B|-3-|  way it's easier to get back to the D# chord.
G|-3-|
D|-3-|
A|-1-|
E|---|
