Hopefully, this is a reasonable facsimile of the guitar played on Incubation on
the Shadowply bootleg (or the Cross of Iron 7" which contains Incubation (Cross
of Iron) and the rather apocalyptic live version of Heart and Soul both from
the Shadowplay performance.)  Not included is the acoustic guitar Ian is
plinking on in the live version.
 
The Substance version appears to have synth added as a sort of background
filler, and the chord portion of the song in live versions is replaced by a
variation of the melody.
 
This song could hardly be considered complete without the unique bass portion...
Oh well.
