    I understand that Bootsy played the bass on this song. I have always enjoyed the line but one part has always puzzled me. It is just before the 4 minute mark. Sort of a muted decending line with some sort of effect added or ???? Any ideas?

    It is Bootsy on that track and Bernie Worrell is also on it and he might be the synth bass sound you hear right before the four minute mark.

    Bootsy sounds like he's playing some sort of patting as opposed to slapping with an open E.
