Please note that this is the way I play the bass line to the song. Sounds right to 
me and i even played it this way for my College Solo performance and had no criticism for it.

Standard Tuning

Also take into consideration, the rhythms during the different parts of the songs

This sounds perfect other than the 589 on the G string of the chorus. In the song the notes go down, rather than up as you have it. If I'm mistaken I apologize, but that's just to my untrained ear ;)
