Hey, guy's im pretty new to guitar, and can only play a few things.. mostly plucking though, not a lot of strumming stuff. I haven't learned chords yet, so the only format I know how to read is the one that goes like this..

e|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
B|--0------3-0----------8\--0----------------0------3-0----------8\---0----------
G|-------------4/6------------------2-------------------4/6-------------------2----
D|------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A|-------------0-------------------0--------------------0--------------------0------
E|--3----------------------3-----------------3----------------------3----------------


The song i'm trying to learn is "Mad World" by Tears for Fears (or gary jules) (sounds pretty much the same though). I have the two main parts covered, but have trouble doing the rest. The tab im using is..

If anybody has the time, do you mind converting the chords below, into the simple kind of format i posted above? it'll take less then 5 minutes. It'd mean a lot! (i think the guy in the video does a single pluck, double pluck, single pluck, double pluck pattern... then moves on to the next chord with those same petters....and so on)

verse Chord Progression : Em, G, D, A
Chorus Chord Progression : Em, A, EM, A, Em, A, Em, A
