I've been going through this tab real slowly, and it sounds great, but it's really hard. I would categorize the difficulty level as advanced, not intermediate.

This is a great tab of this song. Lots of nuances I wouldn't have thought to try and play.

This sounds like its transcribed correctly, however it's in the wrong key. It starts in A.
