The intro is just a C chord with a hammer-on on the D string from 0-2

And your interlude is off.

I play it with the hammer on on the A string from 2-3, I like the sound of it a little better, though i think you may be more accurate.

Regarding the interlude, tell me what part, I'm pretty confident on the accuracy. The only part that might be off is the 0h3p1 part, it tooke me a while to figure it out.

The hammer-on should definitely be on the D-string, but I don't think the solo is wrong, just tabbed weirdly.
