Listen to the song to figure out the pattern; it's somewhat
based off a 12-bar blues (at least in the verses).

When playing, make sure to cut the highs quite a bit, and
probably the lows (but not much).  The whole song is pretty much 
a low-mid workout--it has that late '60s blues-bass vibe to it.
