It's good, only thing, it would sound a lot better at capo at 2nd fret and play the verse like this (relative to capo so like an 11 without capo would be a 9 with)) :

G|--------------------------------|
D|11/7-7-7---11/7--7-7 ---7/9--9-9|X3
A|-0/0-0-0----0/0--0-0----0/0--0-0|
E|-9/5-5-5----9/5--5-5----5/7--7-7|

Tom does a lot of open chords like this.

although your suggestion is playing the right notes differently, it is clear in the song he is using octaves on the a and g string with an open b audibly ringing out at times
