    It is a catchy little walking line for sure.

    Another classic, "Bernadette". That song, and the line will randomly haunt me for a week or so at any given time.

    I've been on a Herb Alpert-Burt Bacharach kick for months now. It's bled into Sinatra & other adult pop songs.

    Lately I've been listening to the 'Silk Degrees' album by Boz Scaggs an awful lot. Great soul/bluesy pop from the 70's, and David Hungate's P (strung w/ rounds) sounds killer - its the sound I strive for w/ my Fender P5 & D'addario XL's. Comes pretty close, IMHO.

    My actual playing? That's another story... :)

    Matching headstock on a P bass! Talk about rare!
