its a little bit off from what I play, basicly the same, but a great tab none the less. You did an awesome job!

This is undoubtedly the best Black Dog tab here, why it only has 3 stars i can only assume is due to lack of lyrics or not the exact structure or something stupid. Anyway what you did for the harmony is excellent. It's closest to the live version too as that also only has one guitar. Great job!
