Anyone ever notice the unintentional distortion on John's guitar starting around 30 seconds in? It sounds like he had a bad cable, but it works. I wish they'd tried exploiting it and done the entire song with a "fuzzy" rhythm.

I got no idea what you're talking about - but isn't "Chains" a great song??

Some of the best early Beatles harmonizing, imo!

Thanks for reminding me!

 

Listen to John's rhythm guitar right at the start of the 2nd verse, his first chord is distorted like it was played througn a fuzzbox. It goes "on and off" throughout the rest of the song, suggesting that it's a short in a cable or something.
