its alright...the guitar is O.K. but it all could be better 3 for trying
First of all, the guitar is tuned up 2 steps to F# B E A Db F#.
Second, those two notes at the beginning up on 14th fret... no no no. Those are harmonics on 12th fret. Done by placing your finger on the string directly above the fret, just barely touching the string. (It's the same thing as Kirk Hammet does at the end of the intro to Metallica's Nothing Else Matters). You don't get those harmonics to sound so good on the 14th fret. Only on 12th, 7th and 5th.
Then in the main riff, if you listen to the song you hear that every time he strikes the 2nd note (the one you say is open 5th string) he pitchbends it up a little bit before pulling his finger off the string, so it's obviously not an open string. It's actually the 3rd fret on the 6th string (the G... or actually the A in this case since the guitar is tuned up 2 steps).
And this is all just from the first line of your tab.
Just start by tuning the guitar up 2 steps and then see how the song will become much easier and more natural to play.
"Tune up"? That's what capos are for.
