Great tab, I play the open B and E strings instead of the G7 on the Good Morning, Smithers Jones part but other than that I play it the same way. To add some depth you can use alternating 331 and 553 on the Bb - G part with "We could ..." and then use the regular open chords for the other Bb - g parts. At the end you can improvise with arpeggios of the chords to match the original.
