Couldn't tell you the notes with 100% certainty without a bass in my hands, so I won't try. I always try to play the last couple of notes a little late and sloppy for authenticity's sake.

I've played with a pretty good bass player who called a waltz, I personally like that and look for an accent on every third beat. Our drummer swears its straight 4/4 and counts it in fours but accents every third beat, which is simply impossible for me to keep track of - like 1 2 3< 4 1 2< 3 4 1< and so on....his point is with the middle and ending chromatic riffs it has to be straight 4/4 or you can't count it.
We rarely if ever nail it because the drummer never gives me an accent beat to shoot for. He's more like 1,2,3,4,1,2,3,4, and so its like wish me luck every time! because timing has never been my strength, unfortunately!
