Dude,that's much too complicated! You should have done a capo version or another tuning. I do appreciate your work, but I didn't even try to play it. But a lot of respect for that work anyway.

Note that this tab is transcribed for PIANO since that is what is in the song. Afraid I don't even play guitar...
