I've heard the multitrack of this song and this is about as close as a tab could ever get to being 100% correct

Yes it's 100% correct pitch wise but it isn't exactly easy to play. You have to cover huge distances on the fretboard in the bridge and make it way to hard to play. Try the bridge like this:

G|-2--2----------------------------4----2--2--------------------4-|
D|----------------2\0-----2----4/6------------4\2---------2-4/6---|
A|--------2-h-4------4----------------------------2-4-------------|
E|----------------------------------------------------------------|

and this is tab is just an export from the guitarpro file btw.
