That's is strikingly right on the money. Who ever did this did a brilliant job. The voicings are right on the money.

I think riff one should be:

|-----------------------------0--|
|-----------------------------0--|
|---------1-0------------1-0--0--|
|----------------------0---------|
|-----2-3---------0-2-3----------|
|-0-------------0----------------|

and in your chord key, why do you distinguish Amaj7 and A when they're the same? just wondering. i still gave you five stars.
