A few adjustment to your tab. It is almost there.

I edited parts of your tab, filled the missing part, and I also removed some of the X's b/c I was having a hard time reading the chords & they usually mean that they're muted.

Just figure out the picking patterns and I think this should be 100% accurate. Great tab man! 5*

Legends:
/ - slide up
\ - slide down
h - hammer on

I meant fingering patterns not picking. He doesn't use a pick when playing this song :)
