Pretty good start. A few things I noticed: One, Amos plays this song in drop D (low E tuned down to D). Some of the chords are named wrong...Asus should be D2 and Asus/b should be D/b I think. If you hear the fingerpicking on the second chord you can tell he also plays a note on the second fret of the high E string (which is why I would call it a D/b rather than Asus/b.
