First It Giveth Bass Tab

In this song the QOTSA seem to never play the same riff twice, but I'll try my hardest...

1/2 step down and Dropped D (making E a Db, or C# if you like, I'll tab it as E)
but DON'T tune down D or G, making this look like Db, Ab, D, G

I'm going to number the riffs to make this a little less typing...

Riff #1
G---------------------------------------------------------------------
D---------------------------------------------------------------------
A-222222222222222-333333333333333-------------------------------------
E---------------------------------444444444444444-0000000000000000----

Riff #2
G---------------------------------------------------------------------
D---------------------------------------------------------------------
A-222222222222222-333333333333333-------------------------------------
E---------------------------------444444444444444-4444444444444444----

Then the guitar comes in, and you *play riff 1 again*, then

Riff #3
G---------------------------------------------------------------------
D---------------------------------------------------------------------
A-222222222222222-023333333333333-23555555555555555555555555555555----
E---------------------------------------------------------------------
Play the 023 and the 235 (they use that variation a lot in this song, but it
happens at random) or it doesn't sound right, then *play riff 1 again* then

Riff #4
G---------------------------------------------------------------------
D---------------------------------------------------------------------
A-222222222222222-333333333333333-555555555555555---------------------
E-------------------------------------------------4444444444444444----

Then riff 1 again, leading to riff 2 (this is where they go nuts on the
variations) and I'm not %100 sure about this one

Riff 5
G---------------------------------------------------------------------
D-000000000000000-111111111111111-------------------------------------
A---------------------------------2222222222222222--------------------
E--------------------------------------------------2222222222222222---

Play that 3 times, then
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/q/queens_of_the_stone_age/first_it_giveth_btab.html ]
Riff 5 (variation)
G---------------------------------------------------1----3--1---------
D-000000000000000-111111111111111-3333333333333333--------------------
A---------------------------------------------------------------------
E---------------------------------------------------------------------

Then play normal riff 5 again, and finally the chorus!

G---------------------------------------------------------------------
D---------------------------------------------------------------------
A-2222222222222222222222222222222-555555555555555---------------------
E-------------------------------------------------4444444444444444----

G---------------------------------------------------------------------
D---------------------------------------------------------------------
A---------------------------------------------------------------------
E-0000000000000000----------------------------------------------------

Then the Pro-Chorus or the after chorus (get some rhythm going!!)

G---------------------------------------------------------------------
D---------------------------------------------------------------------
A-22222222-3333-------------------------------------------------------
E---------------44444444-0000-----------------------------------------

Then the bridge, which has no bass and then these riffs in order:

Riff 1
Riff 2
Riff 5
Riff 5 (var)
Riff 2
Riff 3

Then the chorus again, when you hear the variation it is

G---------------------------------------------------------------------
D---------------------------------------------------------------------
A-2222222222222222222222222222222-555555555555555-7777666666666666----
E---------------------------------------------------------------------

and then the open E, then finally the outro:

G---------------------------------------------------------------------
D---------------------------------------------------------------------
A-222222222-3333------------------------------------------------------
E---------------------------------------------------------------------
