Already realizing that driving, standard rock 'n' roll eighth notes wouldn't cut it in such a sprightly number, McCartney played a quarter-note walking bassline that provided real lift.
His choice of notes, along with bouncy dynamics, approximated both R&B and jazz - a perfect counterpoint to the ringing guitar patterns and Ringo Starr's swishy hi-hat.
Perhaps more amazing than McCartney's intuitive playing (shifting approaches during the chorus and again in the guitar solo) is that he could do it all - and still does - while singing lead...and not looking at the fretboard. Try that on for size!
