  Bridge 

The bassline makes this part feel bouncy - you can emulate this by playing the notes staccato -  
releasing pressure on the fretboard each time you strike the chord.

  Chorus 

Im not certain whether the final notes at the end of the Chorus are D C D B - they instead might be a  
descending run of notes similar to the bass intro, D C B A. It goes past quick so it may be the bass and  
guitar are not playing the same thing - have a listen and pick what feels best.
