Here’s the tab for Miles Kane’s part of an absolute classic, not too different from the original. 
Advice on tab welcome and please rate, Thanks!

Chorus repeats again then enters solo

Uses a lot of vibrato. Can’t really write how he uses it but 
you can tell from the video how he does it. Bends are quite 
big, around 2 semi-tones. 

                    Big bends on these notes 
                    Held for a long-time as well

There is some mistake in the verse, the chord progression should be

D - F# - Bm - Bm/A - E - G and then repeats

sometimes in some live version where miles doesnt plays the saxo he plays the chords like this

Bm - A - G - F# x2 all in bar chords in the shape of E

and the ending

G - A (how much its needed) and finish on Bm (bar on 7th fret)

Anyways great tab!
ps did you get a similar sound for the last part of solo? i dont know how to get it with my tremolo, maybe i should try with a delay...
