Sounds good but I find the riff easier to play when tuned down a whole step like this:

|---------------------------------|---------------------------------||
A||----------------------------3-5--|---------------------------3-5---||
F||*--2---------------------5-------|--2---------------------5-------*||
C||*--2-------4p-2---5--2-----------|--2-------4p-2---5--2-----------*||
G||---0--3p-0------3------3---------|--0--3p-0------3------3----------||
D||---------------------------------|---------------------------------||

Good stuff. One tiny thing, that you can take or leave. At the end of the opening riff, I find it easier to slide the 3 on the G up to 5, then hit 3 on the B

Cheers for the tab!
