Pearl Jam - Rats

I play guitar, not bass, and I figured out the song on guitar. The 
other bass tab for this song is very mediocre, it only has the main 
verse riff. Ament wrote a great bass part for this song, and I think 
it deserves a quality and thourough tab.

And that’s as far as I can hear. The last G is on 4:15 in the song.
After 4:15, the song is inaudible

The order is pretty straightforward, but if you need to know:
Intro
Verse 1
Chorus 1
Verse 2
Chorus 2
Solo
Chorus 3
Chorus 4
Coda

This is pretty good.

Only one thing I believe is incorrect and that is the main verse bassline. It's actually;

G------------------------------------------------7--|
D------------5-5-5---------------------5--(7)/9-----|
A--7---------------7\5--------7---------------------|
E---0--5/7-------------6/7-----0--5/7---------------|

Hope it helps! :)
