Bass figure 1 should be this-

G-|--------------------|----------------------|
D-|--------------------|----------------------|
A-|-0--x-0--0--3-3-3-3-|-0---3--0--3--0-0-0-0-|
E-|--------------------|----------------------|
1x, followed quickly by
G-|-------------------|----------------------|
D-|-------------------|----------------------|
A-|0--x-0--0--3-3-3-3-|-0---3--0--0--0-0-0-0-|
E-|-------------------|----------------------|

Missing a few notes here and there, but overall it's a really good tab to get someone started on this song. just need to listen closely and fill in the gaps in this tab.
