Rock Band Bass Thingy

So you know the sound that the bass makes before you actually start a song? I've tried to figure out what it is so I can do it at shows just for fun but I've had trouble figuring it out. Does anyone know it? At 0:13 of this video is where it's at.

If anyone has the tab already or could ear it out, I'd appreciate it extremely. Thank you.

Sounds like its in standard, with a slide. Something like this, I guess?

G||---------------|
D||---------------|
A||---------------|
E||--2--0--/5--\--|

It sounds like more than 4 notes to me. Maybe 6? Or perhaps 1 or 2 of em are dead notes?

It actually does sound like an attempt to mimmick the sound you can get when you pick up a bass from a stand or something that's already plugged in as your hand holding it by the neck frets a few notes.

Sweet question, OP.

I'm all about fitting in small subliminal things from culture to activate peoples subconscious =)

ie.. phone ringing or text ring tones in songs.

Indeed. However, I still haven't figured it out.

It's just a crackle (or perhaps a muted note) then the E string then the A string...
