Very good as usual! You're getting better and better.

Anyway I think the end is missing a few notes. Try playing it like this:

G|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|
D|---------------7-|---5-----------7-|---5-----------7-|
A|-----------------|-----6-5---5-5---|-----6-5---5-5---|
E|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|

It goes something like that.

Yea I think you might be right about the extra D notes played, very faint, but knowing Cliff, I shouldn't be surprised.

Yeah, he is truly a master and does not get nearly enough credit.
