BASSLINE:

The bass is mainly just E and C as follows, except for before the
second verse he goes to D for one cycle.
This is the bassline for most of the song.
I'll just show the basic notes. Listen for the strum pattern.

VERSE:

The following riff goes with all the verses. Listen for the
16th note strumming and the rests at the start of the first verse.
The G chord denoted below is an inversion of a G5 (power chord).
It should be played with an upstroke i.e. the G note first while
the D power chords should be played with down strokes.
For the C5 I've shown the open E note on the sixth string in
brackets. This is sometimes played whether by accident or design.
It gives the 1st inversion of a C major triad.

CHORUS:

The chorus is really just D to E (implied minor) but between the
singing Dave strums a pattern on the second fret. This is done
with the pad of the first finger and lifted up where necessary.
Once again, listen for the strumming.

    Oh, Oh,...          Oh
