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.

George played the bass part on Two of Us on his Fender guitar in the Let it Be movie and on the album.

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.

There are a lot of things that are incorrect on Rock Band, so let's not take that too seriously.

 

I'm always so flabbergasted when I see how everyone knows all their instruments. I really don't have a clue what guitars or bass guitars they used. I know Paul played a Hofner and Ringo used a Ludwig drumkit and that's about it. Lol.

Paul didn't always use his hofner bass, only until Rubber Soul and on let it be. He played his great bass stuff on his rickenbacker which imo sounds and looks better

I know that he didn't just use the Hofner. That was an example of the only things I knew.

Okay. I don't think it's so important which instrument who playd, the main thing is that the whole thing sounds great, isn't it?

They kept a 6 string bass around for the guitar players to pluck at when Paul had his hands full……...

Best 6 string bass I've heard from a guitarist…….Peter Green's live, 'Green Manaleshi'……..Which I guess adds very little to the conversation……

 

I was distracted by George vs George……..So 'Green's, Green' sorted of fitted……..'Oh Well.'
