I have spent lots of time working on this tab, and it's a very good tab. So enjoy. 
A lot of things that he does is hard to hear, but if you really listen hard enough 
you can hear it. The speakers that I used to figure some of the little things 
out, you could hear the bass perfectly, so this is VERY accurate. Once again, 
enjoy!:)

X=mute
