    I am looking for a solid tab that will support this song. I am a guitar player who does not know bass runs and scales. I know the chords are A E A D and assuming its a blues run? I want to learn on the bass and cannot find any bass tabs for this... help?

    Runs and scales on bass are no different than on guitar -- at least if you stay on the bottom four strings. The notes are an octave lower and written in bass clef, but the note names are the same.

    Back in 1978, I was in a band that covered this song and had a regional hit record with it. I put more of a driving blues feel to it.

    Thats kind of the way The Animals did it too. Everyone has covered this one including seperate recordings by Lennon & McCartney in solo efforts after the Beatles.

    Check out Dave Mason's live version. It has more busy bass lines.
