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.
