Not sure about Josh using a capo on rhthym (he didn't when they played on Ellen) but it doesn't really matter. The lead is pretty much perfect! Thanks for a good lead tab (finally!) 5*

I don't believe a capo is used on this track, but here is why your tab is correct and why using a capo on 4th fret works.

The verse consists of B, F#m, and Emaj7.
When you put a capo on the 4th fret, the G shape becomes B, the Dm shape becomes F#m, and the alternate Cadd9 shape you're using becomes Emaj7.

So good job on this tab, friend. You can so get away with playing the song this way.
