This sounds majorly correct, but i think this is not the right way to play the verse part and i'm also not to sure about the solo, too. I think 1Not8Now2 got it right in version 3. No offense, this version sounds correct, too. I can't put my finger on it, but this just feels wrong when you play it.

I want to post or [tab]
