1. Welcome to TalkBass 2014! If you're new here, we just went through a major site upgrade. Please post all concerns and bugs to the Forum Usage Issues forum. We will be monitoring that forum. Thank you for all of your feedback.

    The TalkBass iphone/android app is NOT WORKING currently. We're working on it. Tapatalk IS working, so if you need to use an app, use Tapatalk. Try using your browser though - TalkBass is now 100% responsive to your phone/tablet screen size ;)

    Please read the TalkBass 2014 FAQ for lots of great info on the new software.

    Would it be a safe assumption that that is a P with flats tone?

    It's harder than people think to tell the difference between Flats & Rounds on a recording. Without researching it I'd be willing to bet that they were rounds.

    John Deacon almost always used flats, Rotosounds to be exact.

    Deacon used a Stingray on the song. Deacon switched to halfrounds in '77 or '78.
