Overall I gave this a 5 star rating because everything is spot on except for the middle section of the solo. Granted your version might work, I'm bias to the actual solo where he stays on the A string the whole way through and ends on the first fret then slides down to the 5th fret on the high C. The bends to begin the solo are spot on, and so is everything else. Just the hammer on section of the solo through me off, but regardless still deserves 5 stars. Only tab I've seen posted, and it's spot on whole way though. Even the lead guitar on the outro was perfect. (even though I can get myself to play the solo because I want to play it the way I see in the video lol)

Ok I take my solo comment, I just saw your video on Youtube and how you played. Granted it's different but ****ing eh! what a cover. And it sounded mint, so your solo works, and no I'm going to watch your video and learn both ways to play it.

Sick cover by the way. All of your videos are!

Thanks! And yeah, I don't like playing that part all on one string even though that is how he plays it, so I modified it to suit my playing style better. I did learn it both ways too lol. But, afterwards I realized I didn't want to play it on one string so I shifted it around. I know it's not perfect, but it sounds good to me. I'm not the greatest at learning (or tabbing) solos for that matter. But, I appreciate the comments on my tabs all the same. :)
