Cat Stevens – Father And Son tab ver. 3

This is a tab I found on UG, it's got not author so I can't say who transcribed 
all the chords, but I completely re-did the solo, I couldn't find a decent tab of 
it anywhere on the net. 
I also formatted so it's a bit easier to follow through with the song. The solo is 
going to be a bit off but it's pretty damn close. 
If your interested, I transcribed the solo off of a Youtube clip, only decent one 
I could find, here's the link to the clip, it may help :) ENJOY!!!
