A couple of mistakes:

This riff:
G|---------------|---------------|
D|---------------|---------------|
A|-------------0-|-----------3-2-|
E|-1-2-3-4-3-4---|-1-2-3-4-3-----|
should be:
G|---------------|---------------|
D|---------------|---------------|
A|-------------0-|-----------3-2-|
E|-1-2-3-4-3-2---|-1-2-3-4-3-----|

And this riff:
G|---------------------|------------------|
D|---------------------|------------------|
A|---3---------------0-|-----------3-2----|
E|-1---3-1-2-3-4-3-1---|-1-2-3-4-3------3-|
should be:
G|---------------------|------------------|
D|---------------------|------------------|
A|---3---------------0-|-----------3-2----|
E|-1---3-1-2-3-4-3-2---|-1-2-3-4-3------3-|
