I've also seen the bridge played like this. My friend (and the bassist for my
band), Chris Burgess, plays a version that plays the octaves of the notes. Here's
how he does it (I'm not a fan of open strings, so I avoid this at possible, or I'd
play it simple!), if you want to try this out.

G|———————————————————————0—————————
D|———————0———————————2—3———3—2———2—
A|———2—3———3—2———2—3———————————3———
E|—3———————————3———————————————————
It looks tougher in the tab. However, you don't have to slide your fingers at all.
So basically, you're playing a run in stationary position which is pretty darn
skippy!

Chorus

Outro

Then finally…
G|———————
D|———————
A|—————3—
E|—0—3———

And let the A|—3— ring at the end. Sorry I didn't give you a repeat value on each
line, but...I think you can swing that. Anyways, that's all, peace and love people!
