Hometown Glory Tab

Hey all.  This is my first tab so I apologise in advance if it's a bit crap.
It's for 'Hometown Glory' by Adele, a song originally composed for piano and
which I thought would sound great on guitar but which actually, in all
honesty, doesn't really survive the translation all that well.

Still, I've put the time in and, who knows, *someone* out there might
like it.  So here ya go.

First of all, you need to retune the guitar.  There may be a more optimal
retuning but this one works well for me.

E tuned down to C#
A tuned down to E
D, G, & B stay as they are.
E tuned down to D#

The bulk of the song is basically this pattern repeated over and over again:
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/a/adele/hometown_glory_tab.html ]
7-7-7-7-|5-5-5-5-|5-5-5-5-|3-3-3-3--|
-6-6-6-6|-6-6-6-6|-6-6-6-6|-6-6-6-6-|
6-6-6-6-|6-6-6-6-|6-6-6-6-|6-6-6-6--|
--------|--------|--------|---------|
6-6-6-6-|4-4-4-4-|--------|---------|
--------|--------|4-4-4-4-|5-5-5-5--|

There's also this little interlude where she kicks it up a couple of octaves:

19--19--19--19--|17--17--17--17--|17--17--17--17--|15--15--15--15---|
--18--18--18--18|--18--18--18--18|--18--18--18--18|--18--18--18--18-|
18--18--18--18--|18--18--18--18--|18--18--18--18--|18--18--18--18---|
----------------|----------------|----------------|-----------------|
----------------|----------------|----------------|-----------------|
----------------|----------------|----------------|-----------------|

And then it goes back to the first bit again.

I've done this by ear so there may be unintentional omissions or other
mistakes.  By and large, however, the above gives a close approximation of
the piano version.

Any comments and feedback will be gratefully appreciated.  Cheers.
