Yeah it is. The tab is completely perfect I would say. Eddie plays it quite fast so it is kind of hard to follow with just my ears, but I would say it is pretty much awesome. And never mind all the MJ sucks shite, I listen to this song because Eddie's playing the guitar licks and solo, which makes the song so badass. 5 stars.
