Where it says to use traditional fingerings, the C that sounds the best is the one
that is played: e 3

This is definitely the most accurate out of the three versions for this song, but still is of on some of the notes.
I rated this four stars, but if you fix it up, it would be easy to boost that up to a five.

I can't figure out what the problem is, but if hurricaneherman found one there must be one!

I know this is four years late, but if you still get on and maybe see this, could you let me know what the problem is you see? This was my first tab ever, and after I'd only been playing guitar for about 8 months. Also, I wrote this tab out while listening and watching a cover of this on youtube for four hours straight hahaha. (It sounded good and matched up with the original recording, so I just figured it was right.)
