by the way, thanks to vonbontee for the heads up about the isolated video, makes it unquestionable when you can hear which Beatle it is and stops all the speculation, debate and arguments.apple01heart

Just chiming in later than necessary to go along with both count-ins being George. He overdubbed the first one, evidently while they were screwing around or something. I really don't know where the nonsense that it was Paul originated from.

Well, personally I got it from my own ears. Which were WRONG! Until I heard the multitrack.

Maybe I kinda had this years-long mental picture of them recording it and couldn't imagine George recording both parts himself - especially at the same time! - and mentally placed Paul as the other voice since it was so obviously George's doing the overdub. And then mentally reinforced the logic since it's Paul who plays the first note of music, so why wouldn't he be the one to do the initial count himself?

I remember George saying 'Blimey, he's always talking about “Yesterday”, you'd think he was Beethoven or somebody' - Paul McCartney

I can definitely relate to the assumption of it being Paul; it's just that I see a lot of 'credible' articles or Beatles historians or the like reiterate 'Paul's iconic count-in' or something to that effect. I think when I first heard it as George I tried proving it on another thread on this forum..

Food for thought - my feeling was always that both count ins are georges voice.
