You should probably just look for the actual song and try to learn it so that when you play this song, you know where you are at. Believe me, I know what I am saying since I thought the same thing. :) :D

Great. What are you all talking about, this is right, great, and easy! 10 stars, no question about it. P.S. The strum pattern is plucking the 3rd string then using UDU. It stays the same for all chords. Rock on Nickish, great tabs, I've enjoyed reading through your full catalog. You should come back and do more!

Why rated down if it's right?

Even if it's a more basic version.

-_- ...FIVE STARS MAN...

:P (and this might be overplayed but it's still a nice song)

it's not my favorite neither.
It was the 1st version of the song published here, that's why this one is so popular.

Like cyndietodd, i dont know why this one is so popular. This is the easy, cheap version. Check out Eddy's for the real deal!

Lyrics are wrong. Even if he sang them this way, they are wrong.

I don't know why this version is so famous here, the most accurate has been tab by Eddy here :

Chords are correct but not at the right place above the lyrics.

I gave it a 9 because the intro and the ending were left out... also the other song that goes w/ it "what a wonderful world" was not included - other than that it is very accurate!!! great job!!
