good tab!! but i noticed a few little mistakes. for this part:

distortion
---------------------------------------------------------------------
------7-8-10-8-7---------7-8-10-8-7-----10b----7-8-10-8-7----------
-9~-9------------7----9~-------------7-9------9------------7-9/12/9~
---------------------------------------------------------------------
---------------------------------------------------------------------
---------------------------------------------------------------------
the bend on the tenth fret should be on the twelfth fret (same string tho)

the note on the high e string in the twelth fret should actually be on the b string (the one below it)
