i've been playing music forever and i've played this song countless times. maybe i misnamed a couple chords. there's also one small part that has a mistake due to copying/pasting error. but one should be able to figure that part out and correct it. other than that, this tab is 100%correct and accurate. another note is that there are multiple versions of this song live, so he may play it slightly differently. this tab was based off of the studio-recorded version.
