I love this tune. nice work.
That varies with the actual instrument. My hollow body guitars and the thinner solid body ones do have a different angle with the sold body necks...
Seeing that your avatar shows a string bass, the other option is bowing. :)
Me in my youth on bass.
All my guitars and basses have straps set so that they are in the same position when I am sitting and standing.

Excellent player - used a pick early on for things like the solo on "My Generation", but developed a 4-finger right hand style that was amazing....
or 3 or even 4 fingers
I use mostly fingers but always have a pick at hand for the times when the bass line needs a pick.
However, my real...
Correct. Unless they are specifically accented more than the 1 and 3.
Because if you play to a 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 pattern, and the 2 and 4 are the accented strong beats, you learn to swing. So we set the beat so it only...

This doesn't mean you are a great,...
That's true...but I would have not had the fun of wearing out the vinyl grooves of a song until I got it right. Plus it was good ear training.

I've heard this a lot from non-musicians:
"I love that song...the...
Interesting - Steely Dan’s lyrics are what I like least about their music!
