good tab but i think the it should be
3 ----------------7
4 -5-5-5-5h6-7-7--

instead of

3 ---------------7
4 -5-5-5-5-6-7-7--

It's okay. There are a few parts that are wrong, but they're barely noticeable, and you really have to listen to hear them. **** (that's 4 stars, by the way, not shit or ****)

This is definitely not a 5-star tab, but it's close. As pointed out, there are a few minor errors here and there that really only a perfectionist like myself would pick out. For example, on the first part of the outro solo, the second 14 on the high e is played twice. Also, for:
|-10-|
|--x-|
|--7-|
|--0-|
|----|
|----|

I like playing it like this:
|-10-|
|-10-|
|--7-|
|--0-|
|----|
|----|

Makes it sound a hell of a lot better to me. Anyway, just a few suggestions. Still a 4-star tab for sure. Good job!
