I have some questions about this awesome john song:

Who played the e-piano solo, Paul said in a playboy interview it was him but emerick said paul composed the e-piano part and played it in the beginning but that John played it in the end. I think that's likely, possibly paul did just forget that john
played it in the end. Does anyone know who acrually played it?

Did Paul sang harmony vocals: Some say he didn't but it sounds more that he just didn't sing on the choruses. Wikipedia says that you can hear on the multitracks, discovered with the rock band game, that paul did. Does onyone know something about that multi-track thing?

Many people say that john added a rythm guitar later but on the anthology take george plays a rythm guitar but no solo. The beatlesbible says that lead guitar was added on 30th july, was that the solo, if yes, who played it? Are there two kead guitars? Is there anyone who knows something about the guitars on come together?

Joe has Paul playing the electric piano, and as well as Paul doing the backing vocals.

Nowhere else to put my random thought so here is where.

Considering the divisiveness (flip me, thats the correct spelling!!) throughout the recording sessions of 'The White Album' and the Get Back sessions i wonder if the placement of 'Come Together' as the album opener was also some kind of statement of intent that the band were getting back to a sort of harmony in the studio and putting aside their differences whilst making the music (even if one mention of business had Ringo and George Martin running for the exit).

Hmm, an interesting sentiment. The song was written for Timothy Leary's gubernatorial run according to John. It was sort of a throwaway song, stealing bits from Chuck Berry as well as himself, and I believe Come Together was Leary's campaign motto. 

 

Still, I like your reasoning better. Let's just go with it a-hard-days-night-john-4

Too bad this sentiment only yielded one more album.  ahdn_paul_01This is another one I've read that Paul helped elevate; he was the one who gave it its funky beat via his bass line.  Yes, the opening line is lifted directly from the Chuck Berry song "You Can't Catch Me," but that's beside the point.
