This is fucking awesome. I've been after this tab for a long time. Previously, I only came across another on another tab site, much farther up the fret board and without harmonics. It didn't even sound close.

I'm not an expert, but from what I've been playing of this one so far, it seems to be right on.

Thanks a ton! :)

I would just add:

Hook your guitar to your belt, and be sure to play with a frown.

Good stuff.
