Alan Valensi: "Hey Matt te importaria si complemento mi tab, corrigiendo la guitarra de nick con la parte de tu tab de 0:44 a 0:59?"
Translates to: "Hey Matt you mind if I add my tab, guitar nick correcting the part of your tab from 0:44 to 0:59??"

Reply: "Hey Alan, please feel free to add your tab if you think mine is incorrect and/or yours is better or complete :) Thanks."
Translates to: "Hola Alan, no dude en añadir su ficha si usted piensa mío es incorrecto y / o la suya es mejor o completa por favor :) Gracias"

Not sure of accuracy of translation, I only used Google Translate.
