This part is difficult to hear (cigarettes and coffee), so I think I'll leave it to 
else who wants to tab it.

It's just the bass playing (if I'm not mistaken) from 3:20 to 3:36, so after that here 
the guitar:

Verse 3:37
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|  x4
A|-------------------------------3-1~----------------------------------------|

   ****    ****     ****    ****

Ending 3:53
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-1111-3--1111-3---1111-3--1111-3-------------------------------------------|
   ****    ****     ****    ****

There you go, I am 100% sure that all of what I have tabbed is right, except for the 
which I invite people to help me improve.

This is definitely in Drop D, as the note Dave plays in the verse first up is a D. This in turn makes everything you have tabbed completely wrong. Please consult version 1 for more information.

As you can see, the rest of the song is correct, so I don't see how the whole tab is "completely wrong." I really don't see the need to tune down if all you're going to miss is one note. Unless you're a perfectionist.
