How to reproduce the sound from a favorite song?

First question is more general:  Is there a best methodology or approach towards reproducing a sound that you like from an existing track?

I've been trying to reproduce the bass sound heard at the beginning (and throughout) this track:  

EDIT: The link to youtube doesn't seem to be showing up.  The song is called Positive Vibe by NIGHTkilla if you care to look it up.

I've watched a lot of youtube video tutorials on how to make different kinds of sounds, but I've had no luck in making anything remotely like this one.

Any help/advice appreciated!
