A correction for this tab:

I realized after I posted this and got a 3-star rating on it that there were a couple mistakes. On the first break where it says:
Break 1
e|--3--3----5--|
B|--3--3----5--|
G|--4--4----5--|
D|--5--7--x-7--|
A|--5--5--x-7--|
E|--3--3--x-5--|

It should say:
Break 1
e|--3--3----5--|
B|--3--5----5--|
G|--4--5----5--|
D|--5--5--x-7--|
A|--5--3--x-7--|
E|--3--3--x-5--|

Next, at the Outro, where it says:

e|--7----10-7----7----10-7----7----10-7----5-11-7-------------|
B|--8----12-8----8----12-8----8----12-8----7-13-8-------------|
G|--9----12-9----9----12-9----9----12-9----7-13-9-------------|

E|--7--x-10-7----7--x-10-7----7--x-10-7--x-5-11-7-------------|

It should say:
