Avenged Sevenfold - So Far Away chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Ok here's a pretty deep song and maybe hard to listen 
to for some people.. but i liked it a lot and figured 
it out. please leave comments with potential corrections 
as i think some of the Bm chords are supposed to be Bsus4 
chords. During most of the D major chords in this song, 
he does a little fill on the high E while keeping the rest 
of the chord fretted.
 e)--2-2-2-3-2-0<<.. Like that. 
During the middle instrumental with the solo acoustic 
guitar (12 string i think), he uses some different voicings 
to create a melody... I believe those voicings are mostly 
sus4 chords.

Dsus4: XX0233
Bsus4: X24452

A final song, a last request. A perfect chapter laid to rest
