for Guitar 1's Verse B: if you listen to the recording carefully, youll notice that the bottom note moves twice, not just once. the bottom note will go from 11th fret on D to 13th fret on A then staying on 11th fret on A. that's one way to play it. on and the lyric is "two steps forward and THREE steps back" just in case you cared for the nuance.

The intro is wrong. I played along with the recording and it sounds waaaaaaaaaaay off. But, the rest of the tab is perfect.
