Ok, So here's whats up, This tab in my opinion, is absolutely Flawless except for the tiniest thing that almost noone seems to catchn but i've noticed it forever. when listening to the song, during the chorus on the 8th notes,
" E E E E E E E E E E E E E E E E
||--------------------------|-------------------------|

||-----14-------14-------14-|-------14-------14-------|
||o-12-------12-------12----|----12-------12----------|
||--------------------------|-------------------------|"

You'll see the 17-16 there at the end, but when i listened to the song and compared it with this tab, it sounded a little off. so i played around a little bit and found that it sounds much better like this when compared with the video

Heres a link to follow to the video, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2BXt-g4euqA , go to about 2:16 seconds into the song and listen from there, you'll notice just about what i did, that the note after the 17th fret is much lower than the 16th fret that was posted, other than that GREAT TAB, i love your work here =].
