I slightly struggle to understand how it is you have seemingly tabbed this by watching the video of Justin playing this live, yet have missed the fact that it is clearly played half step down. Also the chords you've put are slightly fuller than what he actually plays but that's fine, each to their own, doesn't really make a difference. It's a pretty decent effort though.
