You know, I was about to come on here and post what I had come up with for a tab, but it looks like you've beaten me to it... And this is pretty much exactly what I was gonna post. Haha. I think the solo, though, is different... I'll be posting that shortly in another tab. Other than that, awesome. :)

Thanks, I realized the solo was wrong after I tabbed it, but I didn't enter the tab under my username so I can't change it :( Thanks though.
