Guitar Intro:
Notes: I'm putting two different lines here. The first one (1) is just how he 
plays it on the record, the chords get their context from the bass. Below
that (2) is a way you can play it without a bass player with root position 
chords. The hardest thing about this part is getting the rhythm of it.

As a comment pointed out, Mark plays these chords an octave higher than I 
notated here. I've watched it live a few times and I'm pretty sure he's 
playing it as shown in (3). Thanks to dudebud for the correction.

(3)  Dm7             G7

Pre-Chorus:
Notes: I guess that's what to call it. The "I'm too hot" part. Super minimal
part. Do it a few times.

Chorus (Horn part): 
Notes: After the "Don't believe me just watch". This is the horn part, but 
could work on guitar too. There's a break before the 6 hits at the very end,
you can get it by listening along while you play. The intro chords are also
playing during the chorus, but on a synth I think.
