I like the intro to "She Said She Said", one of the Beatles' great riffs.
Absolutely! I love the guitar tone they had during that 1966/Revolver period…really chiming and shimmery but with real balls and crunch behind it. Paperback Writer, Rain, She Said She Said, Taxman, etc. Great sound!

Listen to Cream's "Disraeli Gears" (1967) "Wheels of Fire" albums (1968), Hendrix' first two albums "Axis:Bold As Love" (1967) or the heavier bits from The Who's "The Who Sell Out" (1967)…in the case of the heavier songs/music, The Beatles were playing catch up with what was going on around them.
I am talking about 0:45 part:
To me this sounds more Black Sabbath than Cream to be honest.

If we can count bass too (because they are guitars, after all..) I'd like to acknowledge Lovely Rita, as well as Good Morning Good Morning for all the guitars. I also like the acoustic guitar in Yellow Submarine.. Really, really helps the song.

Hmm that bass part in Lovely Rita IS great. I should really pay more attention to Paul's bass, since some songs really do have an amazing bassline. I also really love the bass in While my guitar gently weeps, Come Together and Don't pass me by for example.
As for the guitars, I love the riff from I feel fine, the guitars in Ticket to ride, the solos in Taxman and I'm only sleeping and just that whole Revolver sound like you can hear in songs such as She said she said and And your bird can sing. I love the guitars in And I love her, Till there was you and the solo in All my loving. Something is great too. Oh and of course in a loooot of other songs.

Since Linde brought up bass, I've always liked the bass playing of Klaus Voormann (he's also the guy who drew the intricate Revolver album cover) on the song "Step Lightly" on the post-Beatles Ringo solo album that was famous for featuring all four Beatles (though on separate tracks).
Voormann plays the bass in a cool jazz style, with some nice "walking bass" riffs here and there. And the bass has a nice deep trebly sound to it, reminiscentof Paul's "fuzz bass" but more restrained (not so "fuzzy").
Also of note:
1) very neat use of clarinets
2) a tap-dancing solo by Ringo!

Revolver sound: yesyesyesyesyes, definitely.
Something is great too.
My. Favorite. Guitar solo. Ever.

Paul played the solo on 'Taxman' and 'Good morning' Lots of attack!!
Lots of great stuff from George. I agree with the comments about his work on 'Til there was you'. It's why I will sometimes listen to that song.
And John? Debate rages over the crunchy chord based solo on 'You Cant Do That'. Apparently that's George but sounds like John to me. I'd like to give it to him.

Does debate really rage, though? I thought it was generally accepted that John played that one. Sounds like him to me, too. (But I sure don't want to start a new controversy over it!)

According to the Beatles Bible, which I always consult in these matters, it is John playing lead. Then I though I would definitively end this debate by posting a link to this youtube video of The Beatles playing "You Can't Do That" (ostensibly) live on stage in concert. )
I think it is funny that for the entire length of the guitar solo, which has to be by John, the camera stays focused on Paul and George singing background vocals. What, did the camera crew think that there was no interesting visual in a guitar player actually, uh… playing notes?

Not a problem at all, it's nice to have things to talk about! And nobody cares about such a harmless mistake; I've made similar ones. The "Hey Bulldog" solo has indeed been discussed here – I suspect it's George, but who knows?
(Welcome to the forum, Atlas, btw! Dunno if you've "Introduced Yourself" on the relevent thread yet…)

I see that many of you have pointed out the great guitar work on 'Revolver', but the high point for me with the 'Revolver' Guitars is the guitar break towards the end of 'Got To Get You Into My Life' where everything else drops out briefly before the song kicks back in, that bit always gets me to sit up and take notice, outstanding…:-)

I'm not surprised that no one has mentioned Dig a Pony, as it is often overlooked due to John's dislike, I suppose. The guitar work, all throughout the song, is one of my favorite amongst the Beatles catalog. Another favorite is the work on I've Got a Feeling, especially that sense of 'falling' it gives after the chorus. If I recall correctly, it is John who plays it. And of course, I admire Here Comes the Sun mainly because of the simplicity of the chords George used to create a unique, impeccable melody. Then there's the intro to In Spite of All the Danger which obviously is nothing spectacular, but has found its way to my heart nonetheless. And so many more…
I have a friend who often teases me with, "The lead guitar on While My Guitar Gently Weeps is the best from all the Beatles songs." If nothing, he earns a smack in the head every time.
