Great tab. Only change I'd make is that I play the Em7 like this instead: (020230).

Everything is great, man! Only I'd like to make the note that, as I have noticed, Elliott plays 3123X1 instead of 312X31. When I got it the first time, I made that mistake too, because in the footage of him playing it really looks like his finger is in the second string. I would get it right some time latter just because you can tell that he uses the third string as the bass of the chord.
Great job in the tab. Cheers, man.
