This style of tab posting isn't really helpful for people who just want to read the tab, play and sing all at the same time. Its hard to figure out which riff is which, then use the legend to put it in order, while reading the lyrics at the very bottom. I'll rate it if I could ever play it.....Or maybe I'll re-tab it how I like to see it if its accurate.

I agree, not sure on the format, can't play it this way.
