Plug in Baby chorus chords

Hey all, I did a search and I couldn't find anything related to exactly what I'm looking for.

In all the tabs the Plug in Baby chorus goes like this:

G Bm
And my plug-in ba - by____________

Bm/F# G
cru-ci - fies__ my en - em-ies. When I'm tired of giv - ing.____

Etc. etc.

And that indeed seems to be what matt is playing when they do the song live. But it sounds different to the studio version. I just watched this cover video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IUbUWbRDsK8 and this guy seems to be playing the chords that I hear in the album version. I was wondering if anyone would be so kind as to tab out what he's playing? I tried and failed!

The stems of the song are out there, can't find them on YouTube though. But those should give you a more clear description of what the guitar is like. I was never able to figure out the chords myself but I also haven't tried in a while.

My bad he's just playing octaves in that cover lol. The way he shapes his hand I thought he was playing something else!

That's a great cover version, BTW. Thanks for posting the link.

To my ears, the studio version is predominantly the B-octave part over the G/Bm chorus section. Listening to stems I found via google, there appears to be two parts - the octave part that can be clearly heard, and the "live" part of G to Bm power chords, though the latter is mixed very low in the studio version.

My preference is to play this, which is a hybrid of the two parts:

During the 2 bars of G:

During the Bm and F# bars:

Although not strictly speaking "correct", IMO it sounds faithful to the studio version but retains the heaviness of the live version. YMMV, etc.
