The tones simply aren't accurate and require different variations than the repetitive sequence they currently have, which is clearly audible in the song. A new version of the tab demonstrates it better than this one.

The beginning should be more like this:

e|--14---------14-------------------------14---------14----------------------|
B|-------11---------11---------12/11\12--------11--------11------------------|
G|----------11---------11-------------------------11--------11--13/11\13-----|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Then repeat that, except when you get to the 13/11\13 part, play 15/13 on the 3rd string instead (or 11/9 on the 2nd string if that's easier).
