Just make soft harmonic tones at the end

Notes:
B1_____R : Bend the note under the 'B' up one tone, hold the bend
and release
~~~~~~ : vibrato

The bridges that I walk across are weak. Frustrations fill the void that I can’t solely bear.
And I have turned away and searched for answers I can’t understand...

If I never heard this song before, which I heard only once, could I still learn to play it if once if I strummed the first few notes I would pick up the rythm?

I guess what Im asking is if I just breezed through the tabs would It sound anything like how the song actually sounds even if I've never heard it?
