the solo is fine
and his pre-chorus is almost perfect also
i have a red hot chili peppers book with the bass tabs so bondman is wrong

for the solo though i would switch that 18 on the D string to a 13 on the G string cause its just easier to get too and instead of playing 10 on the E i would just hit 0 on the D string its also just easier to play and u dont have to stretch ur fingers that much
other than that its a pretty good tab
