Not accurate at all. Where's the 2nd guitar in the verses? There is clearly a palm muted 2nd guitar while the octaves are ringing on the 1st...Why not listen to the song in stereo (getting the left AND right guitars) and then tabbing out Finch songs? Please don't tab the whole album the way you are now. It's just lazy...
