This is awesome! All I would add is that during the outro the top string is being played as well as the low one to add 3rds, so the outro chords are played like this;

G|----5----|----11----|----8----|----7----|----5----|
D|---------|----------|---------|---------|---------|
A|---------|----------|---------|---------|---------|
E|----4----|----11----|----8----|----6----|----4----|
