Those are pretty good tabs.... i can understand them, but it took me a bit to. I think it would be hard for someone to learn the song who wasn't very experienced, or who was trying to cram the song in the day before a gig or something. I personally suck at learning songs by ear so i rely on tabs like these. Overall, just think about that type of stuff when you're making the tabs.

This isn't the bass line. Leave the Db (4) out of Your chorus riff for starters, the bass doesn't play it. Strike Your E (7)and D (5)only once each for a four count leting them ring over what the guitar and keys are playing.
