I know that I sent this in already, but this arrangement is easier
to read and print out.

I don't know how accurate it is overall, but I see the glaringly bad error and it's really easy to see how the mistake happened and how to fix it.

Note: I've never make a comment or correction on here so sorry if I do this wrong.

The mistake is in the opening bars of the verse. He just got the finger placement switched backwards as seen below.

Corrected Verse (this is like the intro):

Correct verse opening:

e ---9----------9--------------------------7-----------|
B ------10---------10------10--------8-----------8-----|
G ----------11---------11---------9-----9-----9-----9--|
D 0----------------------------0-----------------------|
A -----------------------------------------------------|
E -----------------------------------------------------|


The following is the mistake the creator made. Compare the two and you get it right away. The part below is backwards with the 9th, 10th and 11th strings as shown below. The finger on the 9th fret should be on the e string, 10th fret on the B and the 11th fret on the G string just like in the intro.

Wrong Verse opening

e ----------11--------11-----------------7----------|
B ------10--------10------10-------8-----------8----|
G ---9---------9----------------9-----9-----9-----9-|
D 0--------------------------0----------------------|
