    I'm sure we've all thought it has been this:

    Code:
    ------------------------------------------
    7-8-7-5-----------------------7-8-7-5-----
    --------8-5-7-----8-------------------8-7-
    ------------------------3-----------------
    
    But if you listen closely, in the little runs [Bootsy?] never accentuates the second A on the D string. He either does a pull off or a slide. Like this, which I think is the true right way:

    Code:
    ------------------------------------------
    7-8p7-5-----------------------7-8p7-5-----
    --------8-5-7-----8-------------------8-7-
    ------------------------3-----------------
    
    But if you really slow the song down and analyze that note it kind of sounds like he's playing a C there. But indisputably, the third sixteenth note is NOT accentuated.
