As the guys above said, the tuning doesn't really matter, unless you are playing with the same fingerings but in a different tuning. And that's when being able to transpose helps. If you want to play...

Is that from Nightrain?

The verse riff of Nightrain is just one chord and they just play "around" the chord. The tab you posted uses notes from the Am7 chord. It's just the chord and some "fill...

I would say learn both. A good bassist can do both. It's about the sound you are after. Sometimes you have to play with fingers to make it sound right. And some parts sound better with pick.
