Chord progression is 100% correct, with NO DOUBT! I play guitar for years and i used to jam with other musicians playing this song like that ;)

It's just not transcribed in the original tuning (otherwise it's too high to sing) and i forgot to mention it. Now it's done (see the note "orignial tuning +3.5 steps") and fully accurate.
