Excellent tab, although it should be played with a capo on the third fret.

I agree with the waste's comment about the capo on 3. You tabbed everything right though, I only wonder if is played with an alternate tuning somehow...going from that Ab7 to G7 is really tricky, and the recording sounds so fluent...or maybe i'm just not good enough to pull it off ;-)
