Great song and very good tab. The only change I think is that the "Low D" in the Pre-chorus is actually an octave higher (i.e. played on the 12th fret of the dropped D string. Plus I think it's played with a pick rather than "popping" the G string (but maybe wrong - I'd need to see it played live to really know).
