Author’s Note*
I tried to make this as accurate as possible but I did not use any aid
besides my own ears and guitar so if there’s any mistakes email me where I
screwed and you can say you’re better than me! Enjoy the tab!

Key

h – Hammer on
p – Pull off
/ - Slide up
\ - Slide Down
( ) – Ghost Note, or in other words you don’t need to play it cause it’s not
that important

All sounds perfect, except the part in the solo where it slides on the D string from the sixth fret to the second fret sounds to me like it should start on the fifth fret

That's very good, but I think in the second solo instead of this

E:|---------------------|
B:|-------1-3-1h3p1-3-2-|
G:|-3-2-3---------------|
D:|---------------------|
A:|---------------------|
E:|---------------------|

should be this

E:|---------------------|
B:|-------1-3-1h3p1-----|
G:|-3-2-3-----------3-2-|
D:|---------------------|
A:|---------------------|
E:|---------------------|
