This is pretty damn good! Not entirely convinced by the final section... there's a bit more to it (and it gets simpler). Major error is the declared tuning. It is one and one half steps down, so C?-F?-B-E. The fret positions in this tab are correct for this tuning.

for some reason in comment above it changed the sharp symbol to a question mark. I will try again here, but if it does it again, I'm not questioning which note - the question mark should be a sharp sign lol.

C#-F#-B-E

Thank you for your compliment. But the pitch is correct, because I took the music from the album Cross Purposes (www.youtube.com/watch?v=fukaWyXmwNY), and this live album they use this tuning I pointed out. But nothing prevents you from using it to play the version of SBS, paying attention to the pitch, which is what you mentioned.
As for the final stretch, I believe to be correct, Iommi fold exactly the same notes.
