Looks pretty good, except the intro. On the Letterman performance. It looks like Dan is playing this way:
e--------------------------------------------------
B--------------------------------------------------
G-----7-------5-------7-5--------------------------
D--5-----5/3------3--------------------------------
A--------------------------------------------------
E--------------------------------------------------
...and then moving down to the A and D strings, then doing a slight variation on the E and A strings that ends up on the first fret of the A string and into the next part. That's how I play it at least.

Hey thanks a lot SaintOne. I watched the video and I saw that part, too. Also for the part before the verse, it should go like this:
e------------------
B------------------
G------------------
D------------------
A--------3---------
E---3-3-3--6-3-----

Seems like all the other parts of the tab is correct.
