I didnt take a crack at the opening 4 measures. I think I read online that it has
17 guitars layered up, so will leave that to Hal Leonard et al.

Drop a note anytime with any suggested corrections.
Thanks,

I'm pretty sure you're missing a note in the "Fill 2" run. Other than that it seems perfect. Great job.

Also the "12" should be "11" right before 2:12.

During Fill 1, the 17 that you play on the second string right at the start should be a 19.
