About this tab version
This tab uses the correct tuning that the song was originally written in. Was this info helpful? Yes No
This is Mike's part only; there's already a good tab of Steve's part.
The other tab for Mike's part is in the wrong tuning (DAEAC#E, which they never used for any of their songs).
This uses the correct tuning - FCCACF (try not to break a string going from A to C!)

[Intro]
F|---------2--------|---------2--------|---------0--------|------------------|
C|------------4-----|------------2-----|------------4-----|------------4-----|
A|---------------3--|------------------|---------------3--|---------3----(3)-|

F|--0---------------|--2---------------|--4---------------|--2---------------|
Omit the last note (in parentheses) the final rep.

"Goodbyes..."
F|--2-----------------|
C|--4-----------------|
A|--3-----------------|

Play that chord once at the beginning of every rep of the main riff for a total of 4 times.

Good correction for the tuning, as

And finally, at some points, during the bridge, Mike let ring the highest F string, like that :

F|--------------------0-----
C|--------------------------
A|-----------7-----7----7---
C|--------7-----7-----------
C|--0-----------------------
F|--------------------------

To be precise, just after "not to be", "think it's best".

And FINALLY,
the last bit I would change : the "never did" part, which is the same to the last bit of the bridge d) part. I believe it's :

F|-------------0------
C|------------------0-
A|--------5-7---7----- (Hammer on for the 5/7)
C|-----7--------------
C|--------------------
F|--0-----------------

I'm almost sure of what I'm saying

Good correction for the tuning, as indicated on AF setlist ;) And your tab is overall excellent.
Nevertheless, as I pointed it on tab n°4, I think in the Bridge, b) part, it's :

F|-------------------------|-----------------0--------
C|-------------------------|--------------4-----4-----
A|-----------7-----7--5----|-----------3-----------3--
C|--------7-----7----------|--------4-----------------
C|-------------------------|--------------------------
F|--0----------------------|--4-----------------------

and not

F|-------------------------|-----------------0--------
C|-------------------------|--------------4-----4-----
A|-----------7-----7--5----|-----------3-----------3--
C|--------7-----7----------|--------0-----------------
C|-------------------------|--------------------------
F|--0----------------------|--4-----------------------

(4 not 0, on the second C string)

It sounds more accurate, and it's what Kinsella plays I believe. It's also the same thing on the "let's just pretend", change the 0 for a 4. In fact, the two sound good, but if you hear closely, it's definitely 4 (E note).
