"Idle Blood" guitar tab request

Musicians unite! Help!
The title says it all.

All I know is that the intro uses chords similar to that of the Beatles' "Blackbird", but I just can't get round to it!

This might help:

I only just created this thread and I found a few chords after 5mins.

The verse:
B minor
A#/Bb

The chorus:
D minor
C
A#/Bb

I'm playing this in standard tuning by the way.

sounds opethy.
I'm pretty sure most of the chords are of the same shape- the type akerfeldt uses a lot with the A string and the B string fingerpicked simultaneously.
The model is that you hold down the A string one fret higher than the B string (I'm not really into technical jargon so this might not make sense!)
But its used in songs like-

The moor
Blackwater Park
A fair Judgement
Heir Apparent
and even
Stairway to Heaven (obviously not opeth)

but yeah, i think that's the model for most of the fingerpicked chords of the song

That was my first reaction and that's why I love this song so much, it sounds like Opeth!
Even the vocals sound like Akerfeldt!

I think it sounds like Katatonia, and almost nothing like Oepth except for some instrumentation.
I think even more of a Porcupine Tree influence here.

The instrumental part right after the 2nd chorus is basically a damnation part but other than that it's Katatonia.

I think the "Idle Blood" outro sounds a lot like the "Burden" outro, I mean, even the drumroll that kicks in the outro!
