@Joe what's the origin of having Lennon on acoustic guitar?
This is a very popular cover of a Dylan composition, Harrison plays distinctive slide guitar on it, and sings around the guitar riff.
I'm like Necko only I'm a bassist ukulele guitar synthesizer kazoo penguin and also everyone. Or is everyone me? Now I'm a confused bassist ukulele guitar synthesizer kazoo penguin everyone who is definitely not @Joe. This has been true for 2016 & 2017 but I may have to get more specific in the future.
@ewe2 It comes from an interview with Alan White: http://web.archive.org/web/200.....ennon.html
However, I've looked into it a bit further and it seems like it might be false. Here's a good discussion on it:
Because it's in doubt, I'll remove the credit from the article. Thanks for bringing this up.

Does a Dylan demo exist with George playing slide? I believe George initially wanted his playing on New Morning but Dylan went with his own take instead and so George chose to record his own version on ATMP

Not a demo, @sir walter raleigh, but Dylan's first studio attempt at the song is from the 1 May 1970 Dylan/Harrison session and does feature George playing slide, believed to be the earliest recording of him playing slide.
It's quite an annoying guitar part, in my opinion, where George keeps echoing the vocal line (similar, I would guess, to how he's said to have played on Hey Jude and Two of Us to Paul's dislike).
They recorded five takes of the song that day, one a false start, and the fourth take (misidentified as "take 2") appears on the second disc of The Bootleg Series (Rare and Unreleased) 1961-1991 Vols. 1-3.
Unfortunately Bob's still holding out on having his stuff on YT so unable to post it.
