It sounds excellent, but there's just a few technical problems. You have some entirely unnecessary time signature changes. Two measures of 3/4 followed by a measure of 2/4... these really should just be two measure of standard 4/4 (just because a chord changes on the 4th beat doesn't mean it's a whole new measure).
Also, I really think you should have transposed all the notes down 5 frets, and tuned everything up by 5 semitones and just left a note about the capo on the 5th fret. Everything would have still sounded right and would have perfectly simulated the way the song is played, relative to the capo. The way you have it is just a bit more complicated to figure out when you're *actually* playing an open string.
Again, PHENOMENAL job getting the notes right, just not the most technically sound tab.

Thanks for the comment man! Yeah I realized after I did those time signatures stupidly, was too lazy to go back and fix. Just followed along on their guitar playthrough they posted, haven't tabbed in a while so was just trying to get it done fast so just tabbed everything 5 frets up. Happy playing!

If you have Guitar Pro, it's straightforward to transpose the entire tab down 5 semitones and then specify where the capo belongs. That said, I don't whether it actually makes the tab easier to read, since it makes it a little harder to figure where the high notes are played.

With the tab editor open, go to Tools >> Transpose, and in the menu that pops up select 'All bars' under 'Transpose' and '-5 (perfect fourth' under 'By' and click OK. Then go to where you set the tuning on the menu on the side, and set the capo on the 5th fret.

Great job on the tab!
