I've been working on Fire Island's bass for a while now, and after 3 different ways of playing it I'm pretty confident that I got it right.

Try it for yourself, feel free suggest corrections.

I'm not sure how the fills go, So post those if you have em'.

that'd be my guess for the verse
edit: if you wanna slide, playing the g and the c on the A-string might be better.

I'm pretty sure Eric plays this on more than the E string. I'll have to try this some day.
