Chris Squire's wonderful bass work on this prog rock masterpiece.
I tried to strip it down to a fairly straightforward (!) runout
but there is so much going on it wasn't so simple....
it's not actually to difficult but they start at 100mph and get faster......
anyway,  here it is:

Play this four times

Lack of accuracy. Clearly wrong. Except for the song's main riff, most parts of it are not accurate, lacking a lot of important parts to the song's structure.
