After looking it over, it seems about perfect. This is one of those songs that's fairly simple but really awesome to jam to. I'd recommend this tab.

Really good, only I think that in the rhythm part in the intro/verses all of the open notes on the A and D strings are actually 7s on the D and G string, and that the final chord of the intro/verse is the open notes on the A and D.

THis is practically dead on, but i think the breakdown part with the palm mutes should actually be on the G and B strings, not the B and E. other than that, spot on.
