Beat A Drum guitar chords

NOTES: okay, began this by trying to tab the piano for guitar and gave up on
that. I'll just provide a basic layout for the chords/lyrics (again, from
Kipp's site), and take your opinions on which chords should be 7th, maj7,
sus2, etc etc. Mike seems to throw an A-G run into the G and C chords
quite often.

Here are some ideas:

The G in the verses is a G7, sometimes G7sus2.
The Bb in the pre-chorus is a Bbmaj7 sometimes.
The C in the pre-chorus is a C6 sometimes.
The Gm in the chorus is a Gmsus2 sometimes.

The walk in the chorus goes: A--0-1-3--

The instrumental, I really don't know.. it begins on a Dm7 pattern
leading to an Em, but beyond that I'm not really sure. I think it goes
to an Am, then Bb, Am, etc... the bass tab I posted should be accurate,
so perhaps that's the best guide to use if anybody wants to give it a shot.
