When Smokey Sings - ABC - 1987 - Pop/80s

This 80’s smash hit song was rated as the #1 song “written in tribute“:

I’ve been trying to learn this song by ear and have become obsessed with it lately. Tabs and notations for this song don’t exist — at least I couldn’t find any. As a result, I had to listen to it numerous times to try to figure out what is going on with the bass track. The song sounds like a hybrid of a synth bass and a bass guitar. In fact, it may have been recorded with both — using the synth bass for most of it.
