Hey this sounds perfect but I have one suggestion. Instead of GBDGDG with a capo on first fret, try tuning to F#-A#-C#-F#-C#-F# and capo the second fret, its better on acoustic cause there is less string tension meaning less chance of one of those big-assed strings snapping in for face, its not fun believe me. Rock on!
