Great tab, some of the times are a few seconds off (eg. start of the solo) but its damn accurate.

Really helpful to put the times in as well, because it helped when navigating the song to check the accuracy of ur tab ;-). I might try something similar myself...

The way you made the bass fit in with the guitar makes it sound great when I play it by myself. Awesome tab!
