These chords are incorrect, although close. It starts at Am and the other three chords are:

0 1 2 3 3 0 

0 1 0 2 3 3

0 1 0 0 2 3 


If you watch his hands on the video you posted, you'll see it done correctly by Mr. Rice himself. Also, there are some little things he adds in, such as putting down his pinky on the B string during the Am before moving to the next chord, and during the first strum of the second chord he strums without putting down his finger on the G string.
