Have we ever determined what’s making that noise in “I Want To Hold Your Hand “?
Paul plays it on the bass, but there’s something else playing it an octave higher.

I think that’s addressed on the “I Want To Hold Your Hand ” page – if not in the body of the article, maybe down somewhere among the comments. I vaguely recall it being identified as George playing a second bass guitar an octave higher, or something similar.
GEORGE: In fact, The Detroit Sound. JOHN: In fact, yes. GEORGE: In fact, yeah. Tamla-Motown artists are our favorites. The Miracles. JOHN: We like Marvin Gaye. GEORGE: The Impressions, Marvin Gaye. PAUL & GEORGE: Mary Wells. GEORGE: The Exciters. RINGO: Chuck Jackson. JOHN: To name but eighty.
