Thats pretty good man but remember to mention that he uses a acoustic for the rythm and heavy distorted guitar for the chorus

Yes you have all of the chords right but the tuning is all wrong. It is tuned to DADADD. If you tuned it like that then you can do all the fills that he does. What till my tab is finised an you will see how it is played.
