I like this far better than the other tabs with barre cords
I have two comments

The song is in C#minor so the chords should be F#m instead of Eb and G#7 instead of Ab7 the chord diagrams are still the same

I think the A9 should be an A7 alternative 2111
And the A13 following then can be a F#m7 1111
If you use these are much easier to play

Great tab, thank you!

I'd suggest the following voicings:

A9 x-0-2-4-2-3
A13 x-0-5-6-7-5 (= A7add13) OR x-0-2-2-2-2 (making it an A6)

To make it a bit easier
I'd replace the A9 with this A7 x02023
and play the following A13 as x02022
