You forgot the rhythm part in the first 2 choruses, the palm muted chords.
They might be

3 5 7 9
x x x x
5 7 9 11
· · · ·

3 5 7 9
5 7 9 11

...but I could be wrong :-)

I think tje bridge riff is not correct, it sounds too low. I think these chords sound better:

7 9 10 5
x x x x
9 11 12 7

Let me know what you think about it :-)

Hi guys, I've updated this tab now. It should be posted shortly. The version I uploaded was rushed so I re-did it with the correct chords used. Just posted 'A Vicious Kind' too. Love that song. Thanks for your help.
