Ok, i actually taught myself this a year ago and i do 3 things differently....

1- Tune you guitar down to the key of B (1/2 step)

2- Verses: I play moreorless the same pattern you have (being played on the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th strings) but with G, C, and D barre chords on the third fret (G and C) and the fifth fret (D) and picking the middle strings (strings #2-5). This does

3- Lastly, on the bridge part, ive been playing the progression Am7-D-G-C. You have Am-D(for 2 counts)-then C....which does sound ok.

I guess it all depends how you sing along...but either way, check it out!

otherwise, very nice tab!!
