Here is the full version of Yesterdays by Switchfoot.  The song is pretty easy to play,
the very end being the exception.  I suggest you scroll to the very bottom, queue up the
to 3:30, and learn the difficult riff at the end before anything else.

In the chorus and verses, the top note played is often the melody, and should be heard
the rest.  To ensure your playing sounds as good as possible, don't let any open strings
when playing these chords, and make sure to strum from top to bottom on the offbeat.

Okay, the fourth part bar of this riff is BY FAR the hardest part of the song.  Learning
will take about the same amount of time as learning the rest of the song.  Be sure not
mute the B string when you practice it.  When you slide from the 6th to 4th fret on the 
string to come back to the beginning of the outro, you need not pick the note again.

Outro [3:30 - 3:56] with suggested picking : : d d u d d u d u  E------5----------------0--|

UG butchered my tab at the bottom with a messed up line ending... and it's also simpler as follows (sorry):

No... pretty sure the intro is right. If it's wrong it's something small and subtle. Care to tell us what you see wrong with it?

All in all, this is a very good tab, I can't see anything wrong with it.
