Very nice!

Really happy to see this tab,

Really happy to see this tab, wanted to learn this song for a while. The rhythm is killing me though

Well, the rhythm's not

Well, the rhythm's not written right, so that might make it harder.

I'd write this with a triplet feel in 4/4. You could write it in 6/8 instead, but not 3/4. If you write it in 6/8, the notes that go across the middle of each measure should be tied so you can see that each measure is divided into two beats. Otherwise it's a lot harder to sight read the rhythm. In other words, Q E Q E with the middle two tied together, rather than Q Q. E

EDIT: This page describes it pretty well. This tab "disguises the beat", to use his terminology. http://www.musicarrangers.com/star-theory/t07.htm

Anyway...

Tab mangled into triplet feel

I think I might have botched a few note duration percents--Omnicide uses them to let notes ring out past what's written instead of Let Ring, and I'm not sure it works right with tied notes, so I don't think I can quite replicate his attention to detail this way.

Thanks for the correction

Thanks for the correction auri, i don't know much of theory but if it makes easier to learn, i can "fix" it and post an update.

Oh my gosh...
