This is pretty good. You could get away with it being right if you played it for people, but when its layed out in front of you, you know where the errors are. Between every C and Am, theres a B/D chord. It gives it that slow decreasing sort of sound. You also missed some other chords....Sorry man... "A" for effort.. but i gotta vote 3 stars.

Good work otherwise... Considering its the only tab for this song.
