Its got 1 or two missing things, but you tabbed it really good for there being no exsistant sheet music, I was able to play it right off the bat, good job. What you missed that I mainly noticed was toward the end of the solo.

best song on the album
the Robin Solo 1 section might be sharp 1 half step but im still bebating it myself, it really just depends on how hard u bend it
