I haven't checked it all out, but it looks really close to me. I play it, but have never taken the time to tab it. It's a hard one to tab. You've done a really good job.

In the second verse (where you have said some rhythms may vary)
2nd line of riff 2 is

A|-5---3---2---0---|5---3---2-3-----|

That's it... I don't think there are any other variations.

This song is so funky! Lovin that organ vibe, so Deep Purple.
