Fat Friday Feature: Cake's Gabriel Nelson On "Short Skirt\Long Jacket"

Terry (or was it Joan?) reminded me that Cake would make an excellent "Fat Friday Feature".  I've thought of them in the past, but kept forgetting about them.  I believe they've had multiple bass players.  One thing's for sure: whoever is playing, the bass part is almost always super strong - there are a ton of Cake songs I could feature for a FFF.

This bass part is fun because it's one part James Jamerson (in the verses) and one part Cliff Williams (on the chorus).  You get funk and rawk in the same damn song.  Win/win!

Thanks for the idea, Terryjoan!
