  • - Fixed the errors with the time signature.
    - Changed the melodic breakdown and added tapped harmonics to the second bridge like how Jim Root plays it now.
    - Added the solo played from live.
    - Replaced muted notes with palm muted ones.
    - Removed the count in.

  • - Changed parts of the opening riff to make the 'galloping' sound. For the rest of the riff any mute symbols (X) should actually be played with palm muting instead of muting with your fretting hand.
    I've also changed the hammer ons to slides from the 3rd fret to the 2nd fret because that's how it's supposed to be played.
    - This applies to the Paul's section (bass). Mick's (Guitar) and Jim's (Guitar).

    - For Jim's section, melodic breakdown changed slightly, added open notes on the 3rd string.

    Theres more to that in the youtube tutorial. (Skip to the 6th minute as Jim demonstrates this.)

    - For Jims section I changed the main chorus as well, no string bending on the 7th fret and other things.

    Enjoy :^)

    - Fixed that 9/8 error.

    - Changed main BPM to 135.

    - Enjoy!
