I was waiting for someone to cover this one, I'm blown away!!! you absolutely nailed it man, great job and merry Christmas.
Could you post the chord progression, as it would be a great sing along for Christmas.

http://tabs.ultimate-guitar.com/p/pogues/fairytale_of_new_york_ver3_crd.htm I transposed down 2 steps (then capoed back up to D... cuz its easier to play the weird chords).... SO it should C....The F/C i play as 0013 and the F/G the same way honestly... i play the Gsus4 D as 0202....none of which are right, but i liked the flavor....In general you can play the fast part of the song in the classic C G C F C G pattern...those chords aren't exactly right
