Who's playing the fuzzy electric guitar on the Rubber Soul version of "I'm Looking Through You"?

 

I think it's Paul. It sounds more like his flashy, frantic style than George's slower, thoughtful style (Not saying that one is better than the other). The Anthology 2 take sounds more like George to me.

I've never seen anything beyond speculation that it isn't George.  I know some have said it sounds like a McCartney solo thing and that it sounds rushed etc but, to me, that's just a bit of anti-Paul bias feeding speculation.  

 

I will say that I can appreciate that the style may sound more Paul.  Again, however, I've never seen anything beyond speculation - speculation often with an anti-Paul tinge.  Not to say you do Runforyourlife, but others do.

I agree, it has to be George, Paul was double tracked on acoustic on that track, and listen real close to the percussion, yes, Ringo is flicking the back of a pack of matches with his finger in time.  No joke....

Aren't there two different electrics audible during the fade-out? One playing the little hammer-on lick and another one playing something of a little solo?

I'll have to give it a close listening with headphones.

Indian music can't be listened to the same way you hear rock and roll. You cannot do 'Yea Yea' and 'Go Man Go' - Ravi Shankar
