Thanks a lot, just played it trough and the basic chords are spot on! In the recording you can hear that John sometimes goes up the neck to play some chords but it's very hard to figure out until we will see an actual video of him playing the song. One suggestion: the Gm7b11 before the chorus doesn't sound right.John plays this chord instead (from his latest instagram live video): 3x542x

Awesome tab! In re: to what asehauDLM was saying, I found a somewhat better flow using the auto-suggested chord formations from ultimate-guitar. It was a bit easier to play some of the chords which differed from your suggested style, at least just for me personally.
