this was awesome.. i just have 2 corrections i noticed... in the 1st line in the into the third chord should be a C instead of an Am... and second of all on the second like with the hammer on and off thing the G string should be played at the 5th fret not the 3rd.. because it keeps in in the shape of the Cm chord. otherwise excellent

Thanks! Great tab. Probably my fav from Surfer/Pilgrim, except for the way overplayed Where is My Mind.
