In Part I Guitar I, I think you need to omit those open C notes that are played before the sliding notes on the G string. It was harshly throwing off my rhythm. Otherwise, fantastic tab, never would've figured this song out.

I think it should be this.

The part 2 or the bit just after 'falling out of love' ain't quite right.
It sounds like it's around the chords to the main riff if that makes sense?
I'd put a tab up but it's literally just the first two chords guitar 2 plays so you can probably work it out yourself.

I think Part 2 for Guitar 2 is a little off, here is my revision.
