There's some discusion throughout the thread, after the initial "for reference" posts.
Hope that is useful? Don't have much time to post today.
Another idea - looking at some live performances of how they've done this in the Brian era they will often play the 2-4 power chord, then just play the 6 > 7 part as single notes without the 2nd fret B.
To that end, a great tip I had from a producer was for the bass player to take off his shoes & put one foot up on the bass drum. Seriously, it helps you to feel when it hits & lock in tight.
Of course, do this at rehearsals, but not on the gig... ;)
When I learned to play bass the biggest thing I had to overcome was not thinking like a guitar player. I knew where to put my fingers but I just didn't know what to do with the thing. I didn't sound like a "bass player", I sounded like a "guitar player on bass".

I ran a set of Pyramid flat-wounds on my Les Paul for a while (over a year). I loved the sound, & I loved the feel. The only thing I didn't like was - you guessed - not being able to bend the G string so easily. However I adapted.
I only took them of when my band came out of "hiatus" and I...
The serial number is missing, so it'll never be 100% certain. Having said that, there are enough circumstantial factors that have accrued over the years to be reasonably certain that it's a '59. Gibson think so, anyway. That being said, as we all know "'59 specs" continued into early '60, which...
This is absolutely true, of course, but it's also worth adding that playing "in time" with other musicians is very different from playing to a backing track, so you should play with other people as soon as possible, & as often as possible.
I don't mean to imply that people don't play "as in...
