way too many mistakes..

first of all the intro goes like this:
Bend the 7th fret on the E string..
|-4--4--4------0--
|-4--4--4------0--
|-6--6--4------1--
|-6--6--6------2--
|-6--6--6------2--
|-4--4--7b8r7--0--

and what on earth is this chord?
11,12,12,11,11 ????

ya...you're right...sorry, I was half asleep and without a guitar when writing this... although...it's not an authoritative tab of the song... and surely a using a little intuition wouldn't hurt so much?!

oh, and that chord was supposed to be 11,13,13,11,11,11 ...I thought you'd have figured that out.
