I just watched the live performance of this song, and during the chorus, steve doesn't play an Ab for the third chord. He goes up past the octave on the A string to about the 14th fret and does a power chord there. other than that, good tab.

+1 3rd chord is G flat but in a higher octave (11th fret A
string)
