NO.
You can hear that he is paying eighth notes. This tab is WRONG.

1. this tab is straight from the official tab book
2. I write tabs with "phrases" of the guitar. I do not put the actual notes on the tab.
Conclusion-->This tab is right. You're a phucking moron. Go bother someone else.

And hold on... You're contradicting yourself anyway...
You CAN'T have copied this direct out of the official tab book because then it would sound right when played as if it were written the normal way.

You sir... Are a tit.
