Tuning: down half a tone

I love a couple of the riffs in this song ("Shot down, playground..." and "Come on, come on...")

This sounds generaly quite accurate, except in particular in the phrases "Blame it on the daddy...".
Any suggestions for making this bit sound better would be appreciated! EMail me at yalaki@hotmail.com

Any wrong notes/chords, questions, requests, anything: yalaki@hotmail.com

The solo is a bit poor - I lack effects he uses and one part Tak plays it way too fast!

All stop suddenly, except guitar which plays a slight variation on the intro:

You might like to add a fifth in a couple of places in the next phrase. Otherwise it may sound a little too low pitched (?).
