There's no guitar in the song, so tabbing this must have been tough, but it sounds awesome. Good work!

This tab is awesome. I love this song, and I like the idea of singing it along to a guitar. Thank you for taking the time to tab it out.

hey man, great chord-melody... i just have two suggestions:

i think every second time it goes to that Cadd9 chord, you have a typo. i don't think that (x 3 x 0 2 0) is what you want, i think you want to repeat the (x 3 0 3 0) instead. it sounds much better. the C# really clashes with the C in the first chord, and there's no theoretical purpose for it.

secondly, i would suggest adding an A to the implied V chord at the end of each phrase-- the one that looks like ( x 7 0 0 x x). what i'm saying is, add the 5th (x 7 5 0 x x). it's not much, but it sounds nice, makes the chord fuller, and also makes melodic sense, as A is scale degree 2, which leads down to scale degree 1 in the next chord, the G.

other than that, it's a pretty solid tab. nice work.
