dude, on the part where you wrote ("the bit u do twice before part c") you accidentally wrote on the staff edag, instead of eadg. thought id just let you know.

Extremly bad presentation ! "riff a (last bit twice)" you made no indication of when 'last bit' was.
disapointing

BMWM5 don't listen to G.Gamble. That's guy is insane. Your tab's a little confusing but it is perfect EXCEPT on the "last bit". The 0s should be on the A string not the D. The chord is the same but the bass note drops to an 'A'. Otherwise you got my 5 stars.
