Don't Look Back in Anger, written by Noel Gallagher, performed by Oasis.
Song can be found on the album "(What's the Story) Morning Glory?" and was
released as a single.
NOTE: During many of the guitar fills in this song (mostly during the ones
in the pre-chorus) there are 2 guitars playing 2 different fills. For most
of the fills I've written down the one that is more prevalent in the song
(i.e. you hear it louder than the other fill) but for a couple of them, I
tried to combine the two fills. In verse 2, both are written out, with
guitar 1 being the one playing the chords, guitar 2 playing one fill, and
guitar 3 playing another fill.

Chords used:

         EADGBe
C       (x32010)
G       (3x0033)
G2      (355433)
Am      (x02210)
E       (022100)
F       (x33211)
F2      (133211)
Fm      (x33111)
Abdim   (456xxx)

[Verse 1]

C               G            Am
Slip inside the eye of your mind
          E                F
Don't you know you might find
G                     C      Am G  [play these 2 chords quickly]
   A better place to play
C             G            Am
You said that you'd never been
            E                   F
But all the things that you've seen
G               C     Am G
   Slowly fade away

[NOTE: The "Abdim" chord in the pre-chorus could possibly also be played 4
other ways if you don't think the "Abdim" sounds right:

         G#/E   (4x2100)
         G#/E7  (420100)
         Abdim  (xx0101)

Good job, but let's have some corrections. ;)
Actually, this should be played with capo on the 2nd fret in order to sound rightly. There's some other stuff at the beginning where the tab is not quite accurate.
I think it should go like this:

C F C F
e------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B-1---1---1---1----1---1---1------------1---1---1---1---1--1---1---------------|
G-0---0---0---0----2---2---2--------0---0---0---0---0---2--0h2-0------0--------|

A---3---3---3---3----3---3----3---------3---3---3---3-------------------------3|
E------------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Sounds right to me.
I'm not sure about the solo - I guess, I'll try to figure it out later. But even though: this is a good tab - just some little changes were required and now, for me, it sounds pretty close to the original.
