this is a very good tab. i have found it to be almost completely accurate, but i did notice a couple of minor mistakes.

in this part of the tab:
Riff 1
eb|---------------------------------|
Bb|---------------------------------|
Gb|---------------------------------|
Db|---------------------------------|
Ab|-------7-777-------8-----8-7-5-5-|
Eb|-5-555-------5-555---555---------|

Db|---------------------------------|
Ab|-------5-777---------------------|
Eb|-8-888-------5-555-5-555-555-555-|
* *** * *** * *** * *** *** ***

the last part of it where it goes:
-5-555-5-555-555-555-|

should be:
-5-555-5-555-555-553-|


and in this part of the tab:
Riff 4 (Solo rhythm)

its teh same mistake as before. the last note on each barr needs to be 1 whole step lower. for the notes where its 5th fret the last note is 3rd fret and for the notes where the last note is 3rd fret the last note should be 1st fret.

besides those mistakes the tab is flawless.
