see i added in the sliding part it makes it sound more like the song on the album cause there are 4 notes played but u have 3 for the change in sound and heres the 4th one its the 6 then the 5 two times then the slide to the 3 thus making 4 sounds for the changed part of that part of the song

ok dude its pretty good, but kurt plays the solo starting on the 5th fret, 3rd string, and you forgot to add half bends and whole bends. other than that its good. i gave you 4 stars just for missing those
