Nobody is gonna arrest you if you do

But if you wanna learn the song properly, then I'd learn it properly.

imo, if it sounds good and the notes are the same, then go for it.

Does it sound good? Close enough to the original? Is playing it this way easier for you?

If the answer to all these quesions are 'yes!', then yeah, it's ok to play it like that.
They don't think it be like it is, but it do.

its easier than doing the little up stroke things like what Kirk does :L

i'd say no, since the open string notes provide the root movement melody. that being said i'm a big believer in learning to play songs properly. if you had just eared it out and came up with that i'd prolly say "good job" but being that you're sitting there with the tab and trying to play it i'd say "learn to play it right"

No. I've called the cops and they're coming for you. Say bye to all your friends, for you'll never see them again.


Seriously..

Easy;

The more detailed you copy it is, the more it sounds better.

This doesn't go just for notes, but for everything, from sound to dynamics.
