SOLO: (play solo in dotted rhythm. Notes in brackets are very hard or 
impossible to play [with the use of one single guitar]. Use the x’s at the 
top of the tab to determine beat rhythm. I apologize for the difficulty of 
reading this tab :D.)

With the only one he never loved.

A lot of the chord voicings are incorrect in the verses. The D, A, and E are all major 7th chords and the last part of the phrase ends with an E major instead of the 4 Bs.

Also I'm pretty sure the chorus goes A Amaj7 Dmaj7 Fmaj7. Solo sounds good though.

the Amaj7 in the chorus should be played as x02120
The chorus is quite incorrect actually. It should be
A, Amaj7, Dmaj7, Fmaj7 played as x02220, x02120, x5767x, x-8-10-9-10-x
He slides the last chord down a fret at the end of the chorus most times.

The outro goes G, G#, and F#.
