Here's a more accurate version of the finger-picking for The Wings:

e|----------------------------------------------|
B|-0-1-3-6---5---1-1-0---0-1-0------------------|
G|------------------------------2---0---0-0-----|
D|-----------------------------0----2-----0-----|
A|---0-2-5---3-------------0--------3-----------|
E|-3---------------3-3---3---3------------3-----|

(fast)

I will submit a new version of the tab (v2) with this modification.

Note: The "(fast)" bit of the tab in my comment above applies to the following part:

G|--2-
D|-0--

The text alignment didn't work.
