okay here's the deal
great tab
but the post chorus guitar 1 i think it was
with the power-chord like chords
that part's wrong(but close, you still get a 5 from me anyway)
anyways
the chords are these, played this order, but i won't
include the strumming pattern.
note that it repeats like your version
e|-x--x--x--x--x--|
b|-12-8--7--8--5--|
g|-x--x--x--x--x--|
d|-12-9--7--7--5--|
a|-10-7--5--5--3--|
E|-x--x--x--x--x--|

otherwise, great tab, i used to play your version,
but i just found that out watching a video,
and thought you should know..
