Hmm... I don't think it's right. For example the after chorus riff is clearly wrong, you only have to see it played
right to know that.

What do you mean? Wrong notes, or should it be slides? Try and be more specific, and then I can change it

Well, both Troy and Josh use slide on the post chorus riff. http://youtube.com/watch?v=dbFRP8PLQN4
