@Pineapple Records I listened to the version on McCartney. You're right, it's actually not that much of an arpeggio, one at the beginning, one in the middle and one at the end.
That's really funny whenever I listen to this song I perceive it as being full of these arpeggios but now that I listened to it and paid attention to how long the arpeggios last, I found out that it's only 33 seconds out of 168, so only about 20% of the song. These chords really stood out to me though, so much apparently, that I completely overestimated their duration. Really weird, I'm sorry about the inaccuracy.
