Not bad at a first attempt, but I think the intro should be played higher on the neck. It makes it easier and sounds better. Check out version 1 for what I mean. Otherwise, good job.

i think what's going on with the pre-solo thing is that Myles is playing what you have down, but Mark is just doing the higher notes of what you wrote out. if you play on both strings that you tabbed out for Mark, it doesn't sound like the song anymore...
