About two years ago I learned all the solos on guitar.  My band was playing Hey Bulldog , and we were looking for a way to end it, since we couldn't fade out.  I suggested we jump from Hey Bulldog to the drum solo of The End and finish that song.  It was challenging playing all the solos, as there are some overlaps, and you have to jump around the fretboard a lot.  The trickiest jump was from Paul's third lead, which ends on some low notes, to George's third lead that soars up to that very high note.  That third George one is my favorite of them all, as it has so much energy and emotion packed into a few notes.  My current band isn't doing cover songs, but I am itching to bring this one back as it is so much fun to play.  It is amazing how each lead is only 8 beats long but does so much with so much character.  I would have loved to been a fly on the wall the day they recorded these.

@ohthatmagicfeeling That's my favorite part of the solos as well! Having learned them for a single guitarist I can attest to the fact that that is a hard jump.

I always though that it was Paul playing that last solo. It sounds so more characteristic of something he'd do.

Favorite Beatle of the moment: Paul McCartney

Funny…..in that the only solo's I could attribute with a measure of certainty….. were John's……...

 

…….So NOT Paul or George.

I should have clarified. I always thought the order was George-Paul-John, not Paul-George-John. I know it's John playing the last solos, seeing as he does the exact same riffs elsewhere in his songs, most notably Yer Blues .

@paulramon1962 I can't find the video now, but I know I've posted it before, it shows which parts are which Beatle, and it's definitely Paul George John.

I'll try and find it for you...

Edit: If you read the previous page of this thread it should help...

A friend of mine did this as part of a group he was trying to set up with a guy to play Beatles covers. He created backing tracks from the complete scores and learnt all the guitar parts. The group never got anywhere because they'd play bar owners the tapes and they thought they were making things up, that there was more than two of them! Anyway, he proved he could do the solos to me because we played along to the drum track he'd done. It was amazing to watch!
