excellent job, but that little riff that he plays twice once after the 2:42 mark and again right after the 2:48 mark is a little off. it sounds like that second half should be up a fret.

Whenever it does this:

e|----------------------|
B|----------------------|
G|----------------------|
D|----------------------|
A|-14--14--16p14--------|
E|---------------17--14v|

It should be this:

e|----------------------|
B|----------------------|
G|----------------------|
D|-14--14--16p14--------|
A|---------------17--14v|
E|----------------------|


otherwise pretty good job
