This is probably the only song by The Pretty Reckless which is actually worth learning
on guitar to be honest, but it is an awesome song to play along to. On the most part,
it's really easy as well! The intro riff is really simple, the chords for the chorus are 
really straight forward, there's only one bit which will probably trip you up...

The riff in the bridge which follows the vocal melody is really quite basic, as it's
only a few notes which are all quite close together, it just takes a bit of practice to be
able to play it up to speed. I had to take about 20 minutes to play it over and over 
before my fingers could do it right :/

Hey man this is alright but i'm pretty sure The Pretty Reckless play in E flat standard for most of their tunes. I learnt this by ear just now and it seems like a lot of your chords are an octave higher than how they should be played. And on the intro riff at the start, the low Eb string is hit before each group of chords. For example it would be:

Intro Riff
eb|------------------------------|
Bb|------------------------------|
Gb|----9--7-9------9-9-7-9-7-9---|
Db|----9--7-9------9-9-7-9-7-9---|
Ab|----7--5/7------7-7-5/7-5/7---|
Eb|-0---------x0-0---------------|

I'm gonna make a tab now actually.

Actually sorry man no offense but about half of this is wrong haha. And like I said it doesn't help that it's in the wrong tuning. I'm gonna submit my tab now

As long as it's the right chord, why does the tuning matter..? :L suit yourself but you pointed out two things, one of which is redundant without the other one, hardly counts "half of this is wrong"
