Album: The 2nd Law (2012)
Bassist: Chris Wolstenholme
Tuning: Standard

This song sounds like there are two bass lines in first half. My
transcription represents main rhythmic part. Second part sounds more like
additional and consists of eight-notes with fade outs. 

Note: There are some dotted notes and some staccatos. Examples:
(6.) <--- This means dotted note.

 .
(6)  <--- This means staccato. 

Time signature 4/4
Tempo - 132
