- Fretted notes are notated as n*

yeah, the tab is not 100% right. I can't say anything about the position and stuff, but i do know that the chord in the fourth bar and repeatings of that bar is wrong; it's not A|-3-| D|-4-| G|-4-|, but A|-3-| D|-5-| G|-4-|

and that Eb harmonic "A|-2&6-|", i can't really play it perfect, so i play this: E|-4&7+-|, if you get what i mean. it's the same, but you can't play it together with the open E-string..

also some fretted notes are wrong, at the bars where there are no harmonics played; like bar #6

+-------------+ ----------------
|-R-----------| -R--------------
|---0*--0*-2*-| --------0*-2*-3*
+-----3*------+ is actually ---0*-3*-------- except for that great job
