Great job on this tab mate! If anyone doubts this tab you can go to YouTube and watch The Crypt Sessions. This tab is not 100% to how Michael plays it but it is damn close. Keep up the good work James.

this is correct, but the C6 is more like an Am7, the D6 is Bm7/A..
however how you tabbed is 100% correct how I see him play it in a live video, so doesn't matter.

C6 and D6 are also the same notes and inversions, but he keeps that A note in the bass all the time, if you would just play real D6 and D6 it would sound different
