I developed this years ago for singing while playing the bass, but it also worked well for getting students up and playing the song quickly. If one tries to copy the walking upright bass part on this tune off the record, it will surely take a while, as it is loose and improvised. I hope this version gets you inside the tune so that you to can walk all over these changes like the Van Morrison recording eventually. I have included the chords for easy theory reference.
