The other versions have not been quite correct,
and after studying Dave play it live I think this
is a pretty accurate version of the song.
I know the lyrics are correct for sure

Average tab but you got some stuff wrong e.g
its supposed to be a bend on the intro not 6 6
x to x
4 5
Other wise it sounds crap. And the second guitarist does other stuff which dosen't do that.
