The ONLY thing wrong is the out-chorus. The first bar should be on the 3rd-5th strings, not 2nd-4th.

But anyone who can play this can figure that out. 5*

Great catch! In the beginning of the outro, the power chord was accidentally placed on the 1st fret of the 4th string, instead of the 3rd string. I just corrected the problem, which should be reflected on the tab within a few days.

Thanks Slash!
