Hello,

I'm in my "tabbing phase" and it is helping me greatly, I'm learning a lot 
 
But for sometime now I am stuck with a song : Through the valley by Shawn James.
(you can listen to the song on his bandcamp : 

[url="https://shawnjamessoul.bandcamp.com/track/through-the-valley"]https://shawnjamessoul.bandcamp.com/track/through-the-valley[/url]

I'm not having a lot of issue with the notes but the rhythm is beating me. I'm trying to find (if there is any) a pattern when a repeated part can fit in a bar a something.
I also feel that I had to up the tempo for the tab to fit the song which is not normal.

I know there are tabs of this song out there but I also have issue with their rhythm.

I will put the ASCII format of the song here but since I tab in GP7 I can give the file if needed.

Thanks for the help

It has a swing or triplet feel. Yeah, the tab isn't well laid out (it also has a wrong E bass note again when it changes to Am).
Here is what it should look like :

Thank you a lot.
I tried to play around with triplets but I didn't think it would be all the song like that.
Thanks a lot again
