Absolutely 200% correct (but don't they all say that...). You'll find that
if u play this it does actually sound right, purely cuz it is right.

You messed up on the tuning at the top, it doesn't adhere to the tab, (says theres no 6th string and in the tab there is), small mistake :)

Well this is a good tab. I even took my old, fake Strat and removed the two strings to try it. Didn't sound exactly right at times (even though I see in the Buffalo video this is what is played), the intro being the main thing, but thats probably cause that guitar is a piece of crap.

gave it a 5
