The outro has been messed up when it's been posted on the site. Does anyone know how I can edit/remove it to put the changes in?

Just so you know since you said this is your first tab, normally tabs go from EADG, not GDAE. This whole thing is upside down.

Yeah, I noticed that soon after I put it up. It's still legible though, if you use your loaf.
