Bassline for Rush's "Freewill"

Hey! here's my transcription of the bassline for this awesome song:

Freewill Bassline Plus Tab

Notice that, for the sections in which the song's tempo shifts to half speed, it would be more appropriate to write "quarter note = 80" instead of "eighth note = 160" since the pulse is still based on quarter notes (just at half speed), but I preferred to annotate the tempo change that way just to give the idea of same tempo, but different beat unit. Here's a video of myself trying to play the line:

I've just noticed that Yvon and rd have joined as followers of this modest blog. Thank you so much! :)
