The possible correction for the bridge that you commented was originally how I submitted the tab, however I realized that Mike was playing only open strings and the third fret during the bridge. This became apparent once I watched Mike play the bridge live on Jimmy Kimmel live. You can also play the bridge this way:
F|---14p12----14b(16)-12~14---------------------------12b-|
C|---------14------------------12h14------------12h14-----|
G|-----------------------------------13b(14)--------------|
D|-0-------------------------8----------------10----------|
It will sound good and be easier to play, but that's not how Mike plays it live.
