What I know is like 90% of the time I have to make my own sheet of music because of that attitude. You can't really use the above at a gig.
You need the lyrics and chords. If you just want to learn the riff you can get away with something very basic. But in a song like this where there are only like 6 bars of music that are not sung over it makes more since to make it about the lyrics and chords. What I would have to do with this is say oh there are the chords. Now I have to go chart it all out. I submitted a chart of it all. Since the progression never changes you can put the chords over the first verse of lyrics or first line then wing it the rest of the way cause the lyrics are the only thing that changes. I have folders of songs I have charted because no one else would or they would post them in the wrong key.

Just heard this song last night. Listening carefully the start is actually slightly different

Bottom D & B strings should be plucked together first note.

Then instead of going D-B-G (middle) strings, it should be G(Middle)-B-G(middle) strings, same chords as in tab.

Sorry if this doesn't make sense :) I'll try create tab to show-csse.

Nice simple song though.

Isn't the last hammer-on on the third fret? Sounds really weird on the second.
