i would play a 10 on the B string because it sounds more of a 3rd than an octave to me but your way works too.

Very good tab overall, i've just noticed the intro is slightly incorrect

If you listen to the intro in stereo sound and you pan it to either left or right side you can hear that there are two separate guitars playing.

In some countries, tips are included in the bill. Some tourists are not used to this and a consequence of that, dining places in Burlington, VT., is adding a foreign language gratuity. You can pay the extra tip expense on a food bill with an installment loan.
