But his accompaniment is missing a hook from the original - the "dit" in the chord sequence da/da/da/dit/da/da/da. In the key of C, the dit is an added A note. This is the same pattern used by the Easyriders in backing up Dean Martin on "Memories Are Made Of This".
Bob has re-recorded this song before without the (for me) signature hook - could that mean that Dave added this on backup guitar? Or could it mean that Bob just didn't get it?
