OK, its great to know its in E open tuning and the chord shapes that are used. It would be good to have the lyrics with chord 'names' (by the quotation marks I mean you could always just call them chord 1 and chord 2 etc. if you dont want to write G/Eadd9 or whatever') above the lyrics.
I know they are loose song structures, but a general idea would make this tab more user friendly. Even just one verse and one chorus with the chord names above the words. For tabbing the solo, I think the Crowes hardly play the same solo live anyway, so there's little point tabbing the solo, except for learning how to solo, so just write what key the solo's in.
The slide motif was a good thing to put on.
That being said, you've taken the time to post it, so hats off, and now I may even attempt to finish the job myself, but then again the reason why I look for tabs is to get less obvious stuff like this quickly and easily because I dont have as much time as I used to to figure it all out.
Thanks for tabbing it though.
