There are lots of mistakes in the solos, I have made a tab of it im pretty certain is 100% correct but ultimate guitar has serious issues with my computer when I try and post one up there. Ive covered the solos on my youtube profile thing, if you send me a message with your email adress ill send the tab.

Hmm, nice work on the tab ;D
Well, I haven't tried to solo yet but the rest seems pretty much right...
