when you play the intro the second time I don't think it is:
|-------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|-------8-10-8---------------8---6-----------8---8b9r8--------8-----------------|
|-----8--------8-10-8----5-8---8---8-----5-8---8-------8----8---8-10-7---7-5~~--|
|--10------------------7-------------7-6------------------8------------9--------|
|-------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
I think it is:
|-------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|-------8-11-8---------------8---6-----------8---8b9r8--------8-----------------|
|-----8--------8-10-8----5-8---8---8-----5-8---8-------8----8---8-10-7---7-5~~--|
|--10------------------7-------------7-6------------------8------------9--------|
|-------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
the first time you play the 10:th fret, b string, i think it is the 11:th fret, string
