Artist: The Decembirists
Song: The Rake's Song
Album: Hazards of Love
Tuning: Bass standard EADG

Intro and parts throughout the song:
G|-------------------------|
D|-------------------------|
A|-2-2--2-2-2---2-2--2-2-2-|
E|-2-2--0-0-0---2-2--0-0-0-|

or you could do this for the intro:
G|-------------------------|
D|-------------------------| It is best to pluck the strings, not strum w/ a 
A|------2-2-2--------2-2-2-| pick for both
E|-2-2--0-0-0---2-2--0-0-0-|
Both sound great. I have trouble deciding which one sounds the best.

And for the 'Alright, alright,  alright' part, do this:
G|-------------------------------|
D|-------------------------3-3==-|
A|2-2-2--2-2-2--2-2-2--2-2-------|
E|-------------------------------| Moderetly fast part for bass

And then go back to the intro/verse part
G|-------------------------|
D|-------------------------|
A|-2-2--2-2-2---2-2--2-2-2-|
E|-2-2--0-0-0---2-2--0-0-0-|
   or
G|-------------------------|
D|-------------------------|  
A|------2-2-2--------2-2-2-| 
E|-2-2--0-0-0---2-2--0-0-0-|

And for every time he said 'Alright, alright' just do this:
G|-------------------------------|
D|-------------------------3-3==-|
A|2-2-2--2-2-2--2-2-2--2-2-------|
E|-------------------------------|
