I'm just into my second year playing, but I'm already finding out how some beginners lessons on songs, or "beginner tabs" can be really off from the original. No judgment on what's "right, or wrong", but just a note that it's easy to miss some brilliance. I say, go back and check your favorites! I'm sure that more experienced players do this as they learn.
My example (pet peeve?) is the verse from the song "Le Freak" by Chic. I first learned by (what seemed to be a good) YT video, and internet TABS. Played it, and it sounded good. But still, something sounded/felt wrong. Then I found more accurate notation/TABS, and the feel really changed so much (and was harder to play). But the true version is really so much better (in this case, a low E and a hammer on were missing). The additions really improved the groove of the song - really like night and day.
