This is my first tab, so please be kind =)
In my opinion, it sounds like on the album

| /  slide up
| \  slide down
| h  hammer-on
| p  pull-off
| ~  vibrato
| +  harmonic
| x  Mute note

Awesome tab! Although some of the notation you've used like "12p13p12". I'm sure its just a typo, but I think they should be "12b13r12".

And also I think the main rhythm progression is:

Em D G C
e|------------------------------------------|
B|---8---8---8---7----12----12--------------|
G|---9---9---9---7----12----12----9-----9---|
D|-9---9---9---7---12----12-------10----10--|
A|-7---7---7---5---10----10----10----10-----|
E|-----------------------------8-----8------|

Feel free to include it.

All the 13's are bent from 12 and held then returned. Sounds more like the song.
