Pretty close, but it's tuned half a step down and has some open eflats that you missed out on. I might do an edited version of this to show what I mean. Still really close though.

Absolutely nothing wrong with this tab at all. You could tune it a half step down if you wanted easier fingerings, but as it is, it is fine.
