I worked this out in less than 2 hours so it shouldn't be too hard to get a grasp of.
Listen to the song to get the timing/strumming pattern etc.

Uh, I think the tab is mostly good, except two parts in the intro:
1. The first note is played by sliding, so it should be 3/4.
2. The second bar of the intro is DIFFERENT from the first one - there are more notes in the end, so it's like this: 4-4-7-4-4-7-9-11-11p9p7
