on the high E string in this next measure instead of playing it open.
You can too if you want. (On the tab, I've placed the note in braces):

When you slide up to the 12th fret, it sounds like it should be G-12 B-10 e-12 Just saying though I might be wrong

I think overall this is a pretty good tab. I just have one thing to say, I like how you tabbed it out with regards to timing, my only comment is with the main riff.
you made the first note a quarter note and the next an eighth, I think it should be the first two notes are quarter and the rest are Eighth notes. If you listen to the song the first is a quarter and the second is also a quarter there equally timed. also the 12th fret G is an eighth note. it will still fall perfect under the 4/4 time. check it out! let me know what anyone thinks.

you know what, I completely missed one of the notes,so when I played it I felt the timing was off with that strong note on the e, so I thought the second note should be longer. Well forget what I said, you were right with the timing. Lol no worries, good tab.
