do you know what key the song is in? because that will effect what notes your going to use when building your chords.

The easy way to do it would be just to make them power chords. But you could also determine the key the song is in and then from that select the possible chords that could be played with each note, then get the one that sounds best to you/with the song.

For example. The B could be a B chord (the obvious answer) or it could be a G chord OR an E chord. That E could be major or minor depending on the key. But it looks like the song is likely in Am/C or at least it predominantly is but I haven't even listened to it yet since my roommate is asleep.
You could do that with each note until you made a logical progression within the key.

The thing with bass is that mostly only the root note is played along with the corresponding chord on the guitar. For ex- the B note on the bass might be played with a Bmajor or a Bminor chord. The G note can be played with a Gmajor or a Gminor chord.

So once you've identified the notes of the bass guitar, just convert them to major or minor according to the key it's in and you have a song.

Can you explain why B G or E?

The B can act as the root of a B chord, the major third of a G chord, or the perfect fifth of an E major or minor chord.
