Very fun song to play, i learned this at college with a bit of help. But most of it was 
easy to pick up after that. Enjoy!

If you want to play the higher octave, as you suggest, then you need to play the -9-9-777-5-5-7-7-999-| sequence on the A string and not the E.

Otherwise nice work.

Correct. The higher octave is on the A string.
Second bridge after the solo can also be 2-00-2-00-2 on E string. Easy if you want to join the singing.
