Careful where you stand

Hi, I hope this is a little more helpful than the last tab, which I should say I
owe some credit to to help me figure out some of the notes. 

Plus, this tab also includes the electric guitar too

Hope this is of some help!!!!

Very nice. Thanks!

However you should also notate the low 8th notes Chris is playing on the E string.
