Not bad, but verse leaves much to be desired. Karmeleaux
This song starts with chord sustains for the verse rhythm, and that left the impression it was going to be as uninteresting as the other White Stripes songs. That impression started to get wiped away for the ending of the rhythm, with the little section that moved around the fretboard and had a fair ratio of HO/POs.

Unfortunately, you go right back into the verse rhythm. While it moves around, it's very slow and not very engaging. The sustains grow even longer as you approach the chorus, and then the chorus is largely the same as the verse.

The post-chorus, however, is similar to nice rhythm I mentioned earlier, and even throws in HO/PO chords this time.

The bridge comes next and is a pretty unremarkable chord progression (duh-duh-duh duh-duh-duh duh duhhh), and after the neat intro fill again it's back to the verse until the end, which starts to grows old.

Despite my criticisms, the verse and bridge aren't bad, they're just not really notable. The little fills are pretty cool, even though they're not around near enough, but I can see people who enjoy the song having a decent time with this one, which is more than I can really say for any other White Stripes bass I've played.
