THIS one is a sh*tload better... good work. the only way the other one would be better was if I was looking for the easiest possible way to play it. and ... yeah, that chord isn't too hard to play, not sure what you're talking about. good tab though. COMPLETE, unlike the other (allegedly better) one.
