Not bad at all, though

Not bad at all, though there's something about your tabs that keeps bothering me: You sometimes forget to include the chord's third or confuse minor and major; e.g. the very first chord in this song should be E minor. (originally A minor)

It's true that sometimes I

It's true that sometimes I confuse minor and major(the exemple you gave is irrefutable XD) but I fail to see how the lack of thirds in a few chords can be a problem when you can see what kind of chord it is by the rest of the measure =/

Time for examples: Q Q

The green part is fine because when played properly you'll hear the whole minor seventh chord (B D F# A) eventually.
However, the red part is just root and quint of D major. Try adding F# on the 4th string while playing D on the 5th string (possibly omitting that D on the 2nd string). Sounds much more defined, doesn't it?

Also here:

You added a second root to this dominant chord (B D# F#) but adding A to make it a dominant seventh chord would be much more effective in preparing for the imminent tonic.

I got caught up with this

I got caught up with this because I didn't like the changes to the bassline, so I started editing the original bassline from the song back in. Do you see any problems with it like this?

Oh!And Auri,I really like

Oh!And Auri,I really like yours changes,they sure are harder but much more complete.You should do solo stuff more frequently.
Anyway,is there any other changes to do,before we can get this tab updated?

I only wanted to suggest

I only wanted to suggest changes for that part. Mostly because it's my favorite bassline ever, so I wanted to play it that way :-)

I'm still playing around with it. I changed the 1h2 in measure 3 to a 6h7 on the 6th string.

Well,here's the updated

Well,here's the updated version:

I think I got what you mean,I

I think I got what you mean,I only know the basics of music theory but I see what you mean by more defined chord.
Well,this is some good advise,I'll look more into it and use it in the future :D
