Awolnation - Sail tab

Ok my attempt at a standard tuning version of the song, it's my first full
 tab so criticism is welcome, i tried to show some timing here with the
spacing but i doubt it's perfect so listen along. I also tried to tab it in
 a way that uses minimal hand movement up and down the fretboard, lemme know
 if a section feels awkward and I will post an alternate way to play it. At
 the bottom you'll see a diagram of the dynamic of the song showing which
 parts overlap when, in brackets over each section you'll see the
 corresponding symbol that signifies that section in the diagram. Hope it
 helps!

Lalalalala
{didn't bother attempting rhythm here, sounds cool slightly palm muted
r = let ring, the hammer-ons are not necessary but since i couldn't think of a better 
interpretation here they make it a bit more interesting}

*Section A comes in for the final part of each chorus and Stanza
*Section B comes in for the final part of some choruses
*Lalalas are sung during section E (obviously)
*Some sections overlap at parts not noted in the diagram but are turned down so low i 
omitted them
There are a few more untabbed ambient effects and vocal harmonizations but those are the basics
