Interesting tuning, and the recording sounds like it was recorded slightly 
flat because it doesnt sound in tune perfectly. Please rate/comment so I 
can improve if needed. Thanks!

sounds perfect. I've been wanting a good tab for this for a while, and when i saw it under new tabs by my favorite artists, i couldn't believe my eyes!
