The first time I had to learn "Smoke" I was shocked at how immobile the bass line was. I had never paid all that much attention until I had to cover it. At first, I was disappointed, as I wanted to "rock out" on that melodic riff we all know and love. But then I "got" how the anchor is what makes that guitar part so energetic.
