The bassline is in the key of Ab Major, with almost every note being diatonic (a scale tone). The exceptions are an occasional
open D string and an occasional E on the D string. So the real trick is choosing the right fret positions and fingerings.
I mostly use a finger-per-fret technique, but for those of you who don't, my fret numbers should still guide you to play this song mostly in the first position of the bass, with a shift over to third position for the bridge.
By avoiding a lot of position-shifting and sliding around, it's easier to get a steady left hand and focus on the GROOVE instead of just making it to the next note on time, which is sloppy.
I think you will enjoy learning this bass line, and you'll find my tab helpful, to the point, and worth every cent!
