I'm almost positive this is correct.  Normally, a five-string bass
would be playing this; but, since I don't have one, I transcibed it
for a four-string.  Sounds great to me, so I hope you like it!

I honestly haven't gone through the whole song playing this tab but it's the best one I've seen so far. What I've played sounds right. Good job. :)

Yes, very nice work.

We play it in G as both guitarist refuse to use capos, but I play the same, just one semi-tone out.
