Good job for your first tab!!!
this is real helpful to me, my band are doing this song along with Jaded, and until i read this tab i could never make it sound good. the only problem is, i couldnt understand how to do the outro, it's kinda confusing (good tab otherwise)

acutally the main chords are
-7 7- -5 5- -4 4- -3 3- -2 2
-7 7- -5 5- -4 4- -3 3- -2 2
-5 5- -3 3- -2 2- -1 1- -0 0

it has a richer sound..and also..you dont have to tune it down 1/2 step..i played it this way with the music and it sounded 100% right so there ya have it
