This is an EXCELLENT tab, perfect.

Don't get me wrong, its a good thing that you know this is by carol king, but i would suggest putting this under James Taylor so that people don't think that its a different version. His version is the more well known one. The other tabs under James Taylor aren't as good as this =)
