Who is playing the guitar hook that runs so effectively through this song? Is it John or Eric?

 

On a separate note I often wonder what a Beatles version would sound like if Paul hadn't veto'd it as a potential single with George Martin producing and whether that rejection was a root cause of the band folding, at least from John's perspective given that transcript of a September '69 meeting (recorded for an absent Ringo) that seems to point that they were tossing around ideas for a follow up to Abbey Road .

I've always wondered that......

Sounds like John.....maybe they are both at it together.

Can you imagine?

"Come here Eric......Look you put yer fingers here like this.....Turn up the sound and reverb and then forget all the clever twiddly stuff and crunch it.....That's it brilliant brilliant........Want to Join the Beatles??"

According to Joe's article, it was played by Eric Clapton. John had a hand in its creation, though.

The following people thank Beatlebug for this post:

Wigwam

it verges from the sublime to the ridiculote
