There seems to be some confusion about who plays what on Day Tripper, in terms of guitars, especially concerning the solo. After listening extensively to the Capitol stereo mix, I have come to the following conclusions…
- George plays a "doubled" lead guitar. There is a distorted guitar on the right channel, and a twangy clean one on the left.
- John plays the jangly rhythm guitar, mostly 7th chords.
- During the solo, John plays a B7 chord. George plays the solo itself through the right channel, on the clean guitar, while playing the volume swells on the left channel with the distorted guitar.
- Another item of note, Paul plays the riff in E at the 7th fret of the A string (In the same range as the guitar), but drops down to a low-A (Or possibly the 5th fret of the E string) when the riff goes into A, creating that cool guitar/bass "octave" effect.
