|-||Drummer Hal Blaine and bass player <a href="http://www.songfacts.com/blog/interviews/carol_kaye/" target="_blank" target="_blank">Carol Kaye</a> played on this. They were two of the first call Los Angeles studio musicians known for working with Phil Spector and playing on many hits of the era. According to Kaye, Brian Wilson, who was himself a bass player, always had the bass parts written out for her, and "California Girls" was the only song where she was able to get a lick in that Brian didn't write. She says the bass part is reminiscent of a Country song called "Tumbling Tumbleweeds."|
