Johnny Thunders and the Heartbreakers

No-one's tabbed it with the lead yet, licks are simple enough, but strumming patterns + rhythm are tricky. 
I would listen to the record for timing too if I were you.2 guitars, I assume the one on top to be Johnny 
and the one under to be Walter Lure, might have got them confused at some point though. I'm pretty damn 
sure of the licks, but johnny in the verse is dodgy maybe. All corrections/comments welcome.

Awsome song.

Key:

~ = vibrato
b = bend whole step
/ = slide 
(13) = pick note while bent (i.e. the B|-11- on the break)
. = play note staccato
h = hammer on
p = pull off
