Ditto on the love for George's "Til There Was You" solo.

 

Also, John's work on "All My Loving" is stellar. He really was a great rhythm player, period (rhythm playing is an underrated art, imo).

The ascending guitar licks in You Never Give Me Your Money which build the song into the "one sweet dream" section. Maybe my favourite guitar part in any Beatles song.

The guitars between Polythene Pam and Bathroom Window. Have been on a Pepper and Abbey Road kick recently, mainly Abbey Road.

The guitar in Sexy Sadie, Come Together, The End, Octopus's Garden; George really knew how to end a song. Also, Wild Honey Pie, I'm Only Sleeping, and Everybody's Got Something To Hide Except for Me And My Monkey.

Totally agree, especially since the latter is my favourite Beatles song.

"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"

Not only are they good guitar work, but the musical conception of them chord-wise and key-wise is brilliant.  My guess is it's all, or mostly, Paul's genius.  But you never know, John could have helped in a crucial way.  I can just see Paul having a still incomplete idea of what he wanted, then going to John and explaining it to him, playing what he had, and John adding in his musical know-how to help perfect it.

Chordwise the whole song... is simply ridiculous in a good way. Who knew all those chords could work together?

My guess it was mostly Paul, I especially like the "bell sound" in the song, and 1,2,3 part.

Never really paid attention to that little bridge. But yeah, great crescendo

http://www.tubechop.com/watch/1062120

What other Beatle songs have great crescendos? "Please Please Me" "A Day In The Life" ...

The guitar tone on the White Album (as well as the drum sound) has always blown me away. I *love* the tone and attack of George's guitar, especially like on Sexy Sadie, Cry Baby Cry, Dear Prudence, etc. Absolutely wonderful.

I love "Happiness is a warm gun", when it goes Zeppelin-esque 2-3 years before even their debut album :) . Lennon genius!

I love that part too, proves how diverse The Beatles could be. (Led Zep's debut album was recorded in '68, released in January/March (UK) 1969 though).

Yeah sorry about the Zepp thing, but you can't really find this guitar bits on their debut. I should actually say Black Sabbath for that matter :) .

Wrong again, Sabbath formed in '68 (as a band called Earth) and their debut was released in 1969. 8) And several bands were doing heavy rock before The Beatles did in '68 (Cream since '66, The Who since '64, Hendrix since '66), and doing it heavier than they were. I love The Beatles to death (obviously) but they weren't the pioneers 100% of the time...only 95% of the time :)

I love the guitar solo in Old Brown Shoe. I can't believe that the song is often underrated and overlooked.

Probably because of the bad mixing, but the bass is really cool on the track.

I never heard of any Cream song sounding like this, or Who for that matter. Black Sabbath debut was released in 1970.

Listen to Cream's "Disraeli Gears" (1967) "Wheels of Fire" albums (1968), Hendrix' first two albums "Axis:Bold As Love" (1967) or the heavier bits from The Who's "The Who Sell Out" (1967)...in the case of the heavier songs/music, The Beatles were playing catch up with what was going on around them.

I like the intro to "She Said She Said", one of the Beatles' great riffs.

My favourite song is 'Stairway to Heaven' by Motley Crue on their 1876 album 'Yellow Submarine'.
