 different, and some variations in playing are present too.

 Bass guitar (8:07).
 This motive can be seen many times in all the song:
 (8:08)/(8:28)/(8:48)/(9:08)/(9:28)///(11:38)/(11:58)
 So repeat 5 times in (8:08) and twice in (11:38).  I've made this
 playing guitar, so maybe (I really don't know) this is not correct
 for a bass-guitar.
