Is the instrumental totally correct? It sounds a little odd to me, though maybe that's just the way I'm playing it.

The notes are all spot on, but instead of playing 7 on the A and D string, you can just play it on 2 on D then G. I just prefer jumping around up and down the neck because I prefer the slides in it. Makes it sound a bit cooler i think
