I made a typo on the tab. In this part:
E|--------------------------3-4--4/8--9-8-9-11-11-|

just shift the tab to the A string instead of the E string so its like this:
A|--------------------------3-4--4/8--9-8-9-11-11\-|

So play the corrected tab in the intro and after the first chorus. I made the mistake in both places.
