This sounds completely correct to me. The bass line prettymuch follows the
guitar part. Tune to drop-D tuning(low to high: D A D G). I'm pretty sure this
is played with a pick. You should be able to figure out how to articulate all
of the notes from listening to the song. I call a lot of the parts bridges cuz
I don't know what else to call them.


[Intro]

 (bass enters at 0:07)
G|--------------------------------|
D|--------------------------------|
A|-----------------(drums build up|
E|8-8--------7-7---into main riff)|


[Main Riff]

 (the 7h8p7 is a sixteenth-note trill, not eighth notes like the rest)
G|----------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|----------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|--------7-0-8-0-10-0-8-0-7h8p7----------10-0-8-0-7-------7-0-8-0------|
E|0-0-0-0------------------------10---8-8--------------7-7---------10---|(3x)

G|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|--------7-0-8-0-10-0-8-0-7h8p7--------------------------------------|
E|0-0-0-0------------------------10---8-8---------7-7-----------------|


[Verse]

G|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|5---5-5-----------15-15\13-13\12-12/13--------------------10-10/12-12\8-8\7-|
E|--------x-x-0--------------------------8---8-8-x-x-10-----------------------|
( I'll try  she said as she walked away,  Try not to lose you. ...)  (2x)

G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------------------------------------7/-|
E|12-12-12-12-12---0-0-0-0-0---0-0-5-7-8-8-8-8-8---10-10-10-10-10---10-10----|

G|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|----------------------15-15\13-13\12-12/13--------------------10-10/12-12\8-|
E|-12---12-12-x-x-0--------------------------8---8-8-x-x-10-------------------|

----|
----|
8\7-|
----|


[Bridge]

 (or whatever you wanna call it)
G|-------------------------------|
D|-------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------|
E|0-0--------00000---------------|(x8)


[Chorus]

 (half-time feel, the 2h3 are 32nd notes, the 2h3p2 are sixteenth notes):
G|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--------------------------2h3-2h3p2-------------------------------------|
A|5-(5)-----------3---3-3------------5-3----------------------------------|
E|--------0---0-2------------------------3-----3---3-3-8---8-8-8-8-8888--8|

G|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|5-(5)-----------3---3-3-3-3-3333--3----------------------------------|
E|--------0---0-2--------------------3-(3)---3---3-3-3-5-5---3---------|

G|--------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--------------------------2h3-2h3p2---------------------------------------------|
A|5-(5)-----------3---3-3------------5-3------------------------------------------|
E|--------0---0-2------------------------3-----3---3-3-8---8-8-8-8/20-20-20-20-20-|
(those are 20s, not 2s and 0s)

G|----------|
D|----------|
A|----------|
E|20-20-20\-|

G|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|5-(5)-----------3---3-3-3-3-3333--3----------------------------------|
E|--------0---0-2--------------------3-(3)---3---3-3-3-5-5---3---------|


[Bridge 2 Part 1]

 Harmony Riff(still half time feel):
G|----------------------------------------------------------|
D|323-------------032-----------------------------323-------|
A|--------535-------------534---0---1-4-3-1-0---------------|
E|----------------------------------------------------------|

 Bridge #2: Part 2:(prettymuch the main riff again, end half time feel):
G|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------(while lead guitar plays main riff alone:------------------------|
A|-----------bass follows backing guitar)-----------------------------------|
E|0-----------------------------------------------------------------0-0-----|

G|------------------------------------------------------------|
D|------------------------------------------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------------------------|(then play
E|----------------------------8-8---------7-7-----------------| main riff 4x)


[Bridge 2 Part 3]

 (half time feel again):
G|------|      |---------------------------|
D|------|      |---------------------------|
A|------|(8x)  |---------------------------|(2x)
E|0-0-0-|      |0-12-11-0-10-9-8-0-7-0-6-5-|


[Bridge 2 Part 4]

              (end half time feel)      (this riff is half time feel again)
G|-------------------------------|      |-----------------------------------|
D|-------------------------------|      |-----------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------|(12x) |-----------------------------------|
E|0-0--------00000---------------|      |0-6^---0-5^---0-5^---0-3-0-5---2---|

End of Bridge #2. Now, just go back to the chorus again. Let the last note of the
chorus ring for a little bit, then for the outro, just repeat the first bridge riff
8x through, and end on the first two notes of the riff. That's it, so enjoy.

there should only be two 0s at the start of the main riff instead of 4. good tab though. 4 stars
