Pretty close but there are a few things, the 6ths in the 2nd solo are more like this:

e|-----------|----------|5-7-10---9-7--5---|
B|-----------|--2-3-4-5-|------------------|
G|-----------|/2-4-5--6-|6-7-9hbr-9-7-6----|
D|-----2---2-|----------|------------------|
A|-2/4---4---|----------|------------------|
E|-----------|----------|------------------|

And

e|---12-14-16-17---17---17-|
B|-------------------------|
G|/13---14-16-16hb-16hb-16-|
D|-------------------------|
A|-------------------------|
E|-------------------------|


That same unusual pattern, with the e string note one fret above the bent G string note, continues in the next bar.

Also, in situations like Fill 1, I believe the first few notes are not the open string, but the 2nd fret muffled:

Fill 1

B|---------------------|
G|---------------------|
D|---------------------|

Try that and see if you agree.
