Another Great Live Bass Provided by Entwistle Karmeleaux
From the get-go, this song is tiered higher on bass than guitar. And it's the awesome kind of harder.

The intro to this song gives you an idea of what's to come. Good amount of movement and scales. But thetaste of it is a bit too short, as we move towards the verse rhythm, which becomes just R R R G so forth (it moves up a fret later on). This song would probably lose a star if this went on long, but luckily there's a sort of scale after every line in the song, so it's a blast overall.

The chorus is largely dead space, but when there is bass, it's tending to scale. Really, the song tends to scale any time they're not vocals.

The guitar solo comes, and in my opinion the bass is a good deal stronger during it. A slow doublestrum scaling around the fretboard.

This song, overall, is fairly similar in structure to My Generation (Live). A great bass held back only by the verse parts. And again, it's not held back nearly enough for it to matter, recommended to all bass players.
