That was a very impressive try at tabbing Angeles. I've never seen a better version than yours. I will play it this way from now on. My only piece of advice would maybe to put your pinky on the fifth fret of the B string, rather than the fourth fret when playing the Asus4 chord. You're probably a better guitarist than I am though so I won't tell you it's wrong.

Thank you

I'd say guy above is right aboutfifth fret rather than fourth. Also sounds good if on the little 4-2-0 riff you slide 2/4-2-0. Excellent tab btw.

just a minor irrelevant observation ..

you say its tuned 2 steps down capo'd on the 7th .. so it can be played standard capo'd on the 5th ? ..

well 7 to 5 is only 1 step .. that would mean its tuned to D standard and capo'd on the 7th fret .. not tuned two steps down .. that would be C standard and youd have to capo the 3rd fret to play it in standard instead of the 5th. remember one fret is a half step.
