Notation legend:

   x   -> mute.
   \   -> slide up.    \   It can be after or before the note, like 1h3,
   /   -> slide down.   |  but if there's no enought space it can be 
   h   -> hammer on.    |  over or down, like G|-13-...
   p   -> pull off.    /                      D|--h-...
   ~   -> let ring.
   r   -> rest.
   S   -> slap.
   P   -> pop.
   + + -> the rhythm of the song, generally 4x4. If there are 2 digits notes
          or there's no enough space, I lengthen it, 
          from (+   +   ...) to (+   ·   +   ·  ...) 
   |·------·| -> repeat this a number of times, for example |·3-3-3-3·| x4
                 repeats 3-3-3-3 four times.

Lack of accuracy. Chord names are clearly wrong. The tab itself is not correct. The verse should be a "complete" arpeggio with open A in bass
