Great tab, well done! Only a couple of suggestions I'm going to make which makes it easier to play in my opinion. These are for riffs 2,3 and 4. Instead of:

Riff 2 Riff 3
G----------------------------I-------------------------I
D----------------------------I-------------------------I
A----------------------------I-------------------------I
E---11--11---11---9--9---9---I--7--7--7--9--9--9-------I

Riff 4
G--------------------------------------------I
D--------------------------------------------I
A--------------------------------------------I
E-11--11--11------11--11--11-----------------I

Why not just have:

Riff 2 Riff 3
G-----------------------------I-----------------------------I
D-----------------------------I-----------------------------I
A---6---6---6----4---4---4----I---2---2---2----4---4---4----I
E-----------------------------I-----------------------------I

Riff 4
G-----------------------------I
D-----------------------------I
A---6---6---6----6---6---6----I
E-----------------------------I
