The Beatles had begun work on the song on the previous day, but were unhappy with the results. On this day they recorded takes 6-8, the last of which became the basis of the final released version.
The session began at 2.30pm and finished at 9pm. McCartney played bass guitar, Ringo Starr was on drums, John Lennon played a rhythm guitar part, and George Harrison played a tambourine. During the coda George Martin performed an organ part.
