Although the bass is drop D tuning,

I could be wrong on a lot of things here, 
but this is how I play it and it comes out 
sounding pretty good.  Any comments appreciated.

Version 2
---------

strum the following chords to the base line

G, F, C

ok, now chorus...  (octave time)


G--7-9--11/12-14-16-12-
D----------------------
A--5-7---9/10-12-14-10-

then back to the chords

slow part

the chords are just a G and a C but only strum 
the bottom 4 strings (6,5,4,3 - or - E,A,D,G)

that's just about it
