Good tab, buddy. I really enjoyed learning this song. I do have a few corrections to make, I believe.

Chorus should be:

e-----------------------------|
B-----------------------------|
G-12--11-10-9--8-8-8-7-7-7-----|
D--9--8--7--6--5-5-5-4-4-4-----|
A-10--9--8--7--6-6-6-5-5-5-----|
E-----------------------------|

e--------------------------------------|
B-----3b-------3b----------------------|
G-----3b-------3b---------3---3-3-3----|
D------------------------------------2-|
A-----------------x-3-3--------------2-|
E-3-3----x-3-3-----------------------O-|

e--------------------------------------|
B---3b-------3b------------------------|
G---3b-------3b------------------------|
D------------------9-8-7-6-5-5-5-4-4-4-|
A-----------------10-9-8-7-6-6-6-5-5-5-|
E-0----x-0-0---------------------------|

Then on the 2nd solo, I hear this:
Solo 2:

e-------6b-------6b------6h8p6-10b12-8-8-6------------------------6-|
B-6-7-8----6-7-8----6-7-8------------------8--8--8--8--8--8--8--8---|
G-------------------------------------------------------------------|
D-------------------------------------------------------------------|
A-------------------------------------------------------------------|
E-------------------------------------------------------------------|

e-10-------6b-------6b------6h8p6-10b12-8-8-6------------------------6-|
B----6-7-8----6-7-8----6-7-8------------------8--8--8--8--8--8--8--8---|

Some parts are well tabbed but I think you overlooked some parts where it's clearly wrong, for example Verse 2 and part 2 of Verse 3 (in addition to jmdinardo's correction).

I want to post or [tab]
