good tab dude, it works on it's own really well and God knows I'm far too tone deaf to do a whole one myself. However, when I play along to the music it just doesnt quite go. The chorus soudns pretty spot on, its just that the intro sound off. Firstly it sounds like there should be a quick 5th fret between the 0 and the 8. Secondly, the notes just generally don't sound right. I'm not sure what the first few notes should be, but I'm almost certain it goes 7-6 then 5 on the B string instead of 8-7-0 on the top e. Don't know what anyone else thinks of that, if anyone reckons they can figure out the intro in D standard?
Playing the E flat version a fret higher is a bit closer, but still sounds slightly out, partly because of the bit I just mentioned but there are othe bits jsut a touch out.

OK, sorry for the double post but I think I've managed to bring you guys' two tabs together to make a full step down version that's sounds just about right. I also added a bit of my own that I saw Brian play in a youtube vid. Do either of you object to me doing that?
