Disclaimer: Each lesson I do is basically transcribed by ear but usually I check a video of a live performance to make sure I’ve got fingerings and positions correct. I can’t guarantee however that everything is 100% accurate and honestly, I have seen 1000’s of TABs and none of them were flawless (including official TAB). Should you spot an error, please don’t be angry but just share your insight as a comment so others can reap the benefits…
