Awesome tab

this is just a suggestion but instead of
|------------------|------------------||
|------------------|------------------||
|o-------2-2-/-9-9-|---9-9-----------o||
|o-9-----2-2-/-9-9-|---9-9-9-9---9---o||
|--9-----0-0-/-7-7-|---7-7-9-9---9-0--||
|--7---0-----------|-0-----7-7---7-0--||

wouldn't it be just a little easier if you played it like
|------------------|------------------||
|------------------|------------------||
|o-4-----2-2-/-9-9-|---9-9-----------o||
|o-4-----2-2-/-9-9-|---9-9-9-9---9---o||
|--2-----0-0-/-7-7-|---7-7-9-9---9-0--||
|------0-----------|-0-----7-7---7-0--||


i dunno, just one thing in the main riff that's how I'll play it.
a little less moving your hand. I'm just saying. haha
