This isnt insanly bad but........

your going to low and the chord structures are way off.
Should be:

CHORUS:

C#m (slide up neck to) E (slide up to) A

Basically it u stay with that same fingering for the chorus u just slide up to the C#m at the 4th then to the E at the 7th then the A at the 12th

I want to post or [tab]
