Pretty good except the verse. Clearly every (555) and (987) ,etc is played twice quickly there is no palm muting in between.

Other than that it's all good, but it kind of sucks that the verse is off so much and the last two chords in the verse sound totally off.

And it is an F chord first...you know you can play along with the song right? Try strumming a G and see how that sounds.
