It's one of those Beatle mysteries- who bassed on
Birthday? With the conflicting sources I guess we'll never know. As an experienced bass player myself, though, I'd say the playing is more McCartney-style.

Funny, I always thought the bass line of "Birthday" had a very lumpy sound to it, i.e. not really typical of Paul's playing.  Let's also not forget that in The Beatles: Rock Band George is shown playing the Fender VI in that song while Paul plays his Epiphone electric as well as the piano.

I love the dreamscapes on Beatles RB, but they did a lot to make their life easier.

I still can't believe George played bass on Maxwell's Silver Hammer, the bass sounds really good. How did Paul scold George about the bass in Two of Us? The bass sounds good in that track.

Once there was a way to get back homewards. Once there was a way to get back home; sleep pretty darling do not cry. And I will sing a lullaby
