I'm giving the credit for this tab to cojak_jr, since he submitted the chords.
All I figured out was the picking pattern for the lead riff off of what he had.
If you don't know what a specific chord is, go to the chord version of this song.

Very nice tab. If I had to be picky, I'd say it sounds almost more 6/8-ish that 3/4.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't ther e four beats per measure in this song? Chordwise, i think the measure structure is quarter note G chord quarter note G/F# chord and half-note C chord
You can hear the drums accent the first and third beats of each measure. I'm almost positive this song is in 4/4
BnL generally stick to common time

My bad.
I was looking at it as though it were a very slow tempo. It is 3/4. But you have to admit, in that sense it does kinda sound like 4/4
