Thanks for putting out this tab. For some reason Figure 2 doesn't sound quite right to me, but I can't seem to figure out any other way to play it. However, I did find a mistake with Figure 10, here is the correction.

Tuning is actually CGCGGe, which obviously changes the second string for this whole tab

I want to post or [tab]
