First of all, it's easiest on a 5-string bass and that's what I'm writing the tab for.

not a good tab. the chorus and solo riffs are wrong, and the five string just confuses the hell outta me.

You are flat half a step from the start. Fist three notes are A, F, D. Start from there.

Thanks for trying. I agree that it is better to use a 5 string than to downtune every other song.
