Best one I've seen yet, however, I think some things are not quite right (could be wrong). I play this song almost daily. Instead of this (solo): A-3-0-3-0-3-5-| |-2-0-2-0-2-5-| I play E-7-5-7-5-7 A-5-(repeat) (similar to the second part of this tab, but on the E string primarily. Seems most AC/DC bassists like to play the E string and tune slightly flat (E and A). Also, the slide up is E-5/7 instead of 3/7. As for the E-1's in the chorus, if you tune down, play E-2's. My humble opinion. Good job!

^^^^^
this guy is spot on. Cliff Williams has a love affair with the E string. If it sounds like it could be played on the E string, chances are, it is played that way. Always go for the deeper tone. Other than that, I'll give this tab 4 stars. It's thorough, but some minor inconsistencies are present. The song is simple enough though that if you go by this and listen to the song, you can figure it out. Good job!
