Not bad. Definitely helped with some of the lower parts that I wasn't sure on, but there are definitely some parts that are off. Still, nice job

Im not completely sure on the tuning for bass, but i know for guitar, the 7th string is automatically an A for standard tuning. Wouldn't it be the same for bass. so technically the B wouldn't be lowered. it would just be an A. I'm not dogging ya, I'm just that way. i notice a lot of little things. but hey nice tab.

The 7th string of a guitar is B, not A, Petrucci used a 6 string guitar tuned to A# for this song. The correct tunning for the bass is AEACG, just check any live videos.
