Here's the isolated bass track and some things to listen for.
1. You can hear the influence of Motown's James Jamerson in the way connects the notes between sections, weaving a line that gets from one part to another in a sometimes unusual manner.
2. The part is busy by today's standards with some sections that make you think, "How'd he think of that?"
3. The part isn't played perfectly as there are some occasional brief timing issues, usually being a little late on a note.
4. The very last note of the song is a flam.
