Almost, but close enough for government work. Your intro is messed up in the second half it's not 5-3 it's 3-2. And the bass doesn't come in until the 5th time through on the intro. Also you forgot the fill that Geddy plays in the chorus after the first phrase.

Is your bass tuned like a whole step down? Do you have your bass tuned like D,G,C,F? That's the only way I can make this tab sound right is to tune my bass down like that.

geddy doesnt come in until the drums do in the verse and i dont think he plays the open E's but just the rest of the riff. (sry if this comment makes no sense)
