Oh yes, I feel like a troll. But is it just me, or do I find Paul's mouth bass in "I Will" strangely appealing? 

I thought it was John.

'Nowhere Man' is one that no dude here has taken notice of ! Yet to think of 23-year-old Paul building it up is still pretty unbelievable to me. Being a guitar and bass player myself, I've always been intrigued by that bass line and I once put it down, realizing that Paul hardly ever plays QUITE the same thing from verse to verse. He really invented the walking rock bass line in 'Nowhere Man', like jazz players swing when they 'walk' ! He does it here in a clear gentle way that fits John's song perfectly. Just try to think how as a bass player you could underline John's melody, hearing the song for the first time... Now imagine yourself in the mid-60s hearing what you hear from the pop charts with no one even paying attention to bass guitars, then you come up with THAT... Purely amazing.

John did percussion, Paul was on vocals, guitar and vocal bass. According to what I know..

I didn't see if anyone said this already but I think the bass from Devil In Her Heart is real nice.
