This is certainly a valiant effort for your first try. A little constructive criticism for you - This is a very advanced song a beginner to figure out. The song uses some 6, maj7, m7 and regular 7 chords. If you're listening to the intro of the song, be sure to listen to the bass player. He will give the basic clue as to the chord's root tone, whether it's a C, G, A or whatever. Then, you need to listen to the underlying notes to determine the quality - whether the chord is a minor, major, 7, sus, dim, aug or whatever.
You listed G, Am, D7 and G in the intro. Try playing those chords while listening to the song. While they're roughly correct, you should be able to hear an E note (first string played open) under what you have listed as the second G chord. That E gives us the chord quality of G6. Can you hear it? Then, we go back to a G chord and alternate a few more times between G and G6. Next, you have the Am, which is correct, followed by a D7. While I normally play a regular D here, the D7 is technically more correct and actually sounds better. Next, we play the G chord again, followed by another G6 (remember the E?). Next, we hear another G chord. You should be able to hear an F# note under the G chord on this one. The F# gives us a maj7. Play your normal G, but drop your third finger back one fret on the first string to the second fret. The remainder of the song is roughly correct, however the After Solo part has some wrong chords.
Again, not bad for your first try. Keep trying and don't give up!
