Originally the song is in Fm. 
By placing a capo at the first fret you make it a little bit easier because now the song can be played as Em.
Therefore the chord progression of the whole song is Em | Am | Bm | Em.
If you play this in a band like me and your singer is able/wants to sing it in regular G you can remove
the capo.

Since this is a reggae type groove I recommend turning the tone knob (on a passive bass) all the way down
and playing close the to the neck to get a very deep and smooth tone.
For the absolutely original sound you should also palm mute all notes. I don't do it because I don't like
the sound.

This is not 100% like the original. It takes some of the key lines to which I add my own spice.
Especially the the little E minor lick on the last bar of the Chorus/Verse.

[Chorus/Verse]

Repeat this until the break at around 2:37.

   Em                           Am

A|----------------------------|--7-------------7-------7--5|

[Break]

If you count each bar in eighth notes with 1 + 2 + etc. the notes should be played on 2 and 4.
 
  1  +  2  +  3  +  4  +
