    i think its 7 eighth notes followed by 2 quarters to end the song. this is after the very fast sixteenth notes on the 7th fret on e

    Pretend a band decides to do this song and the geetar player and the bass player learn it from tab.......

    This is the verse bass part from this site.

    Verse Riff 1:
    |-3-|
    |---------------------------|
    |*-------------------6-7-8-*|
    |*-7---7-7---7-7---7-------*|
    |---------------------------|
    1 & a 2 & a 3 & a 4 & a


    This is the Verse part from www.guitaretab.com

    Verse

    \--------------------------------------------------
    \--------------------------------------------------
    \--------------------------------------------------
    \--------------------------------------------------
    \--------------------------------------------5~6~7-
    \-0--0--0--0--0--0--5~6~7--0--0--0--0--0--0--------



    I DO NOT want to be in the room when those two start playing this song

    I Think the Bass part is Mostly:

    Main Riff:

    |---------------------------|
    |*-------------------7-8-9-*|
    |*-7---7-7---7-7---7-------*|
    |---------------------------|
    1 & a 2 & a 3 & a 4 & a

    There are a few variations later on in the song, between the 2 "Let it Roll" Parts

    And I think it's this twice on "Save our City"

    |-----7-7-5-5------|
    |-------------7-7--|
    |-7-7--------------|
    |------------------|


    For the "Let It Roll" It's like

    |----------------------|
    |*-------------4-----*|
    |*----4-4-7-7---7----*|
    |--5-5-----------------|
    1 & 2 & 3 & 4 &

    Playes as straight 8th notes. I think twice the 1st time and 3 times the 2nd time

    I thought you must've made a mistake cause you seem to know what you're talking about. But I decided to post it anyways.

    The few ending notes I have trouble finding too, guess I'll just try again when the mood for that song comes around again.

    I play the main riff on the open E string like so:

    ----------------------
    ----------------7-8-9
    -----------------------
    -0-0-0-0-0-0-------

    Let the E ring, don't mute. Sometimes 9-8-7 on the G string rather than 7-8-9.

    The "Let it Roll" part is just a stock pulldown to A. I pull down to the A on the E string. Four bars of stock A blues. Then on the E string: 4 triplets of B then slow C C C B and everybody stops. "All night long" and back to the main riff.

    For the ending do the above stop. Guitar plays a little outro, then the bass plays E D on the A string. So you end on the D which leaves the listener hanging and makes the song more memorable.
