The whole song is pretty simple. There is just some small riffs during the first verse I 
can't get, so If you can understand them, please post a comment or correction. Thanks!

  Verse 2 All down strums. During the live performances he loops the power chord part 
and plays some octaves, so it's still, technically, a one guitar song.

Just an obvious FYI, you have the 2nd and 3rd strings tabbed backwards in instances of the first chord you use:

e|----
B|----
G|----
D|--4-
A|--5-
D|--0-

Otherwise, though great tab
