This is spot on, however I think the little begging bit goes a little somethin' like this:
|18-17-15-11-10------|
|--------------------|
|----------------6---|
|------------------4-|
It also sounds like it's played on a fretless to me, but no the rest of the song.
One last thing, instead of going to the 6th fret on the E, I prefer using the 1st fret on the A, but that's just me.

5/5
