Lack of accuracy. I believe the main riff is played on 12th fret of the D string, the notes in the chorus don't seem to match up with the song and the solo should be on the D string rather than G

This guitar version looks easier and accurate, thanks for putting the instructions in every parts. By the way, can I asking you for Bass version?

Yes, solo plays on the 4th string. And the chorus I think this:
