this is more a comment than a correction. i would like to say you have done an awesome job at this.. thanks for the hard
work!! its bloody near perfect.. it confused me a bit at first.. after i listened to the song and followed the tab i
understood what you were gettin at with the different riffs everywhere ... the only correction i have is in the line
"with the son of god just hanging like a common criminal" you have written that the chord is E but in your riff its Em..
Em is the correct chord... you just missed the little 'm's

thanks again!!! adom
