I think this:

e|----------------------------------------|
B|-17p15p12-15--12-------12---------------|
G|-----------------15-14----15-14-12-12~\-|
D|----------------------------------------|
A|----------------------------------------|
E|----------------------------------------|

should be this:

e|----------------------------------------|
B|-17p15p12-15--12-------12----------12~--|
G|-----------------15-14----15-14-12-12~\-|
D|----------------------------------------|

E|----------------------------------------|

just with that note on the end changed... i dunno, i think it sounds more accurate :)
