It's your arrangement, so you can ignore this of course, but it sounds funny to me starting the song on an inversion. It doesn't really get the harmonic motion between the intro and the next section, either.

So when I was playing through, I decided to play the intro like this instead:

S S S S S S S S S S S S S S S S  S S S S S S S S S S E   E   E
e |--------------------------------|--------------------------------|
B |--0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0-|--0---0---0---0---0-----0-------|
G |--------------------------------|----------------------------6---|
D |--------6---------------6-------|--------6---------------6-------|
A |----6-------6-------6-------6---|----6-------6-------6-------6---|
E |4---------------4---------------|4---------------4---------------|

Oh, but besides that one thing, I think it is a nice arrangement :-D

I agree with Auri on this...because the harp plays the bass notes as well, you can hear it in the original with the harp playing the part you have written out and a lower "bum bum bum, bum bum bum, bum bum bum," pattern that is also played in the harp with the root note. This is aside from the actual bass playing the lower bass line.

Just playing the inversion as the intro is very uncomfortable to listen to, it's too ambiguous to start with, you need to stabilize yourself with the root. The rest of the piece is very grounded, so there is no real reason not to have the introduction the same way. Feel free to ignore the advice, but imho, Auri is dead on.

This tab is very nice but really tough on the left hand.
