Help. I cannot figure out what chords Phil is doing on the intro for hard to handle. Anyone have a link or the answer?

Not having a bass in hand, I think Phil's playing on the intro of HTH:

1. Start on D string 9th fret and then step down: B, A G#, G# F#
2. E string slide down from 9th fret: A
3. A string 4th fret: C# B
4. E string 2nd fret: F# F# G#
5. A string 2nd fret: B A
6. E string: E
7. A string: B
