The first few notes here sounded off to me,

|---10----10--------------------------------------|------------------------|
|------11----11----11-----------------8-10-11-10v-|--11v-10v-11v--10-------|
|---------------10-----7--9----7-9-7--------------|-------------------10-9v|
|-------------------------------------------------|------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------|------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------|------------------------|

I hear it more like this. () show the changes.

|---(10)-----(6)--------------------------------|------------------------|
|------(10)\----(6)\----------------8-10-11-10v-|--11v-10v-11v--10-------|
|--------------------7--9----7-9-7--------------|-------------------10-9v|
|-----------------------------------------------|------------------------|

This matches Bill's fretting hand better on a youtube video I'm watching to help learn the timing.

Fantastic tab!
