This is a start the rest is up to you lot's of sliding and variations going on.
Not everything is Bass I have wrote down but it sounds cool for me to play it like this, all up to you what you do with it off course, I'm no butthole surfer, i wish.
And all this starts at 8 minutes in the song for those who don't know the song.

No. Just no.

Even if you only watch the song on YouTube, there is “stereoscopic” footage available showing Jeff playing from the moment Paul comes in. And one can clearly hear the bass is through a flange or a combo of distortion and flange. I do not know if Jeff is consciously trying to imitate Jimi Hendrix's guitar playing on his bass, but the progression just after Gibby is quoting some of Tom Berenger's career-best lines is the whole reason I desire to learn this song.

Fair warning: do not watch this video if you are under the effects of acid. You can also hear the division between the guitar and the bass a little more clearly here than on the CD album. Which is quite the accomplishment for a YouChoob video.
