very very good tab! i thought i would never learn to play this song and i seriously didn't know this kind of tuning even existed. very very well done.

Tab/chords look good, I would change one thing.

The end of the bridge you have D, B, C. Instead of a regular C major chord using


use this. I think that approximates the chord he's using better.
