This is a very taseful bassline from an excellent song. A fretless would be
useful for all of the sliding, pulloffs and hammerons.  I left out some if the
fills but all of the important stuff is there.
 

Wait till after guitar intro, then...

E|----3------3-----3-3----3--2-|-3-3-3---------------|
 

rest a bit...
 
then just basically go nuts over Gm7, Am7, and Dm7 pentatonic.  I'd have to
look at the guitar music to see if those are the actual chords but if you play
enough notes nobody will notice that you're outside the chord.

E|--3--3---5--5------|
 
Note 1:  There's a lot of stuff you can do here.  The first lick I put in there
is just about what he's playing.  The second one is just something else that
will fit.  Minor pentatonic scales are your friend!
 
Note 2:  Basically the same as note 1.  Minor pentatonic scales are your
friend... the chord is Dm7
 
Note 3: Get your own pentatonic licks!  I'm not giving any more out! :) The
chord is Am7
