Hey, I think it sounds perfect, but I think the intro is easier to play this way (The ending part of the intro)
You play this:

|---12-13-12-10---------------------10-12-13-12-10---------------
|---------------13-12-10---10-12-13------------------------------
|------------------------13--------------------------------------
|----------------------------------------------------------------
|----------------------------------------------------------------
|----------------------------------------------------------------

But I think this is easier:
|12-13-12----------------------------12-13-12------------------
|---------15-13-12----------12-13-15----------15---------------
|------------------14-13-14------------------------------------
|--------------------------------------------------------------
|--------------------------------------------------------------
|--------------------------------------------------------------

I think it's easier for me, but maybe it's just me. It's only a suggestion.
