Do you guys know what guitars Paul used on his McCartney album, most specifically Maybe I'm Amazed , I know he used his Martin D-28 for his acoustic work on that album, but I'm not sure about the electric guitars, if I had to guess, I'd say the Casino, but it's also possible he used the Esquire and there are photographs of him using a (most likely) black Gibson non-reverse Firebird that seem to be from around this time, although they could be from the Ram sessions.

Seems like the beard is too short for McCartney. I don't know the exact model of the guitar in the top left but I'm sure you do.

It looks like the Casino was the main guitar he used on McCartney after all.

I think the guitars should be mentioned only if we are sure what guitar they used on the song, for example here's the instrumentation for A Hard Day's Night :

Backing Track:

John Lennon : Lead Vocals, Rhythm Guitar (Rickenbacker 325)

Paul McCartney : Bass Guitar (Hofner 500/1), Backing and Bridge Vocals

George Harrison : Lead Guitar (Rickenbacker 360/12)

Ringo Starr : Drums

Overdubs:

John Lennon : Lead Vocals and Rhythm Guitar (Gibson J-160E)

Paul McCartney : Backing and Bridge Vocals

George Harrison : Guitar solo (Rickenbacker 360/12)

Ringo Starr : Bongos and Cowbell

George Martin: Piano

Here's the instrumentation for Nowhere Man , a song where we are sure of some guitars but not all of them:

Backing Track:

John Lennon : Rhythm Guitar (Gibson J-160E)

Paul McCartney : Bass Guitar

George Harrison : Acoustic Rhythm Guitar

Ringo Starr : Drums

Overdubs:

John Lennon : Lead Vocals (double tracked), Guitar solo (Fender Stratocaster)

George Harrison : Lead Guitar (Fender Stratocaster) (2 overdubs, one for the solo and one for everything else), Harmony Vocals (double tracked)

Paul McCartney : Harmony Vocals (double tracked)

And here's the instrumentation for Oh Darling, a song where none of the instruments can be confirmed:

Backing Track:

Paul McCartney : Lead Vocals, Bass Guitar

John Lennon : Piano

George Harrison : Lead Guitar

Ringo Starr : Drums

Overdubs:

Paul McCartney : Lead Vocals, Backing Vocals

John Lennon : Backing Vocals

George Harrison : Backing Vocals

Just do things like this so you're giving out misinformation.

Just want to say thank for this site/info. It's gold for people like me.

My dad was in Badfinger (Mike Gibbins).
Im about to recreate the gear used on Day Tripper for my YouTube channel. I recreate famous studio setups to nerd out over gear. Eg this is one of INXS I need you tonight:

This is Alice In Chains :

I love this video which gives me a clearer outline of what was used tonally.
https://youtu.be/othSH7Bh6d0

I'm about to blurt out some questions...if you know anything else that may help please chirp in.

Does anyone have some inside info? Was the initial riff pushed through the board to make it more driven? Or was It just a regular room mic'd vox? Were the amps close mic'd and mixed to one track? Or were the guitars only picked up by room mic's?

are there any pics of the studio setup? Baffles? Separation? Were they in the room tracking so there was bleed of the acoustic aspect or were they playing guitars in the control room/isolated?
I heard they sometimes put amps in closets for separation, was this the case?
Was the Gibson the main hook/intro? Or did it play the backing chords?

Apparently it was a pressure song, not fully written so they had to hash it out under a deadline. So I imagine it wasn't really structured/documented well so I'm not expecting any answers. But if anyone can help, esp pics from the session I'd appreciate it.

I'll provide a link here of my results. I should have it recorded/uploaded in a few days.

Welcome @thefyn . First, if Mike Gibbins was your dad (I definitely see a resemblance), I'd like to say I'm a fan of Badfinger and am sorry he is no longer with us. 

I enjoyed your videos above and can see your passion for what you do. Looking forward to seeing some Beatles recreations.

Cheers.

Thanks Zig. Yep That's my dad. Great to hear you liked his music. So much Beatles links. First band signed to Apple. He always said tbey should never have left Apple despite the slow tailspin of the label.

I had a lovely surprise that you may like. Check this out:

I was hoping they used a strat on the track so I could use that guitar. It actually sounds pretty stratty (not the hook riff on Day Tripper but the basic chords/backing).

Nice to see someone of note on this forum, although you should edit your father's Wikipedia so it mentions you if this is true. Since you're here, can you tell us more about George Harrison 's Gibson SG that was given to your father's bandmate Pete Ham.

Many thanks, @thefyn . The yellowed tuning knobs, the short kneck, the reverence ("Why am I talking like that?"), the way you played it, the final two words of the video. They all sent chills up my spine.

Thanks again.

Hi @thefyn, and welcome to the forum.

Here's some information from the brilliant Recording The Beatles book (try to get hold of a copy if you haven't already). It doesn't directly answer your questions but will hopefully be useful anyway.

AFAIK they didn't really use baffles, apart from vocals and drums, for much of their career. The Michelle diagram should give an idea of how the studio was set up in late 1965. And I don't think they recorded in the control room until 1967 (George's lead guitar on Flying might have been their first to have DI straight into the console).

I think it's a nice coincidence I have that guitar in my lap with the kyboard on my knees as I type.  haha

 

I'm tracking right now.  It's going good.  I'm devising a way to playback what I record and capture it while I play guitar.  That way my drums and bass bleed into the guitar mic etc.  Slow going but I want to get this as right as a can.

I am obsessed with the tone of that guitar.  I've procured the same era t-top Gisbon pickups and harness etc.  I also bought a bridge with nylon saddles to get a similar attack.

I'm having trouble getting a vibrola though.  Too expensive.  I'm going to try and build the same guitar.  I have the lumber etc.  I just need time.

Let's circle back around to "Rock And Roll Music " for a minute. I didn't realize there was so much controversy surrounding this song, but apparently there is.

Mark Lewisohn says it was recorded live, one take, with no overdubbing, and that George Martin played the piano.

Geoff Emerick says that Paul McCartney did the piano work, while George Harrison played McCartney's Hofner bass.

Derek Taylor says in the album's liner notes that John, Paul, and George Martin all played on the same piano (implying, obviously, an overdub).

John C. Winn agrees, saying the piano part was overdubbed and played by John, Paul, and George Martin all sitting at the same piano.

How on earth do you settle that? Lewisohn had access to the source tapes and notes, right? But Geoff Emerick was an eyewitness. Derek Taylor may not have been an eyewitness to the session (I've seen zero sources claiming that he was), but he certainly got that odd bit of information from someone on the inside -- who would invent something as specific and curious as "three men all sat and played the same piano at once"?

Against Emerick's claim is the fact (not just an opinion) that if George Harrison did indeed have to take over and play Paul's Hofner, he would have had to play an upside-down guitar since the Hofner was strung for a lefty. That bass part may not be the most complicated thing in the world, but it's more than a root-fifth part. It's got moving arpeggios all through the verses, and does some octave jumping in the chorus. I'm not saying George Harrison couldn't pull it off on an upside-down guitar, but in one take?

But if that is George Martin on the piano, as Lewisohn claims, he certainly became very good at the piano, very fast. I don't want to stray into territory where opinion forms the facts (e.g., "I don't think Martin could have played that part, so therefore, he didn't"), but the facts are that his piano contributions to Beatles records up to this point were either a) fairly simplistic, or b) played a half-speed.

Also, I would need to hear the piano in isolation, but that final chorus (after the words "so keep rockin' that piano," appropriately) very much sounds like there's bass, middle register, and ringing top register parts all being played on the piano. That's getting way too far into subjective territory, though.

Not sure how you ultimately sort that out without appeal to opinion and "here's what I hear on the record," because that's a lot of experts all giving differing reports of what happened.

I just assume that Geoff made a mistake and ignore his theory instead opting for the John and George on guitar, Paul on bass, Ringo on drums, and George Martin on piano theory.

I think the song was probably recorded in a single take, then the piano (perhaps involving more than one person) was overdubbed after. I think it could well have been half-speed, because the triplets in the final chorus are mighty difficult to play. Martin overdubbed half-speed piano on several songs around that time (eg Misery , A Hard Day's Night ) so it's not unlikely.

Mark Lewisohn was working to a tight deadline and I think he relied on John Barrett's notes for a lot of the entries, rather than listening to absolutely everything (I might be wrong about this). When I met him a few years ago he said that book (the Complete Recording Sessions) is in desperate need of a revision, but he was far too busy on All These Years. He's also said that the Winn books are a worthy successor, so I suspect that's a more reliable source in many cases.

Geoff Emerick is a tricky one. It's difficult to say "No, that's not what happened" to someone who was actually at the sessions, but I think his recollections have been found to be suspect on other occasions. According to Ken Scott, when Emerick's book got commissioned he went around asking a lot of EMI staffers for their recollections, so things might have got twisted along the way. He also loves McCartney and seems to dislike GM, so would have been happy to give Paul the credit. The book was ghost-written too, which makes things harder still. It's still a fabulous read though.

Are there two guitars on the song though? There's no lead, so George was likely doubling up Lennon's rhythm (or Lennon was only on vocals). It's possible that GH was on a left-strung bass – it's not the most complicated bass part – but I think it's more likely that Paul played the instrument.

I have 5 theories, ranked from most to least likely, take your pick:

1: The song was recorded in one take without any overdubs and used George Martin on the piano

John Lennon : Lead Vocals, Rhythm Guitar

Paul McCartney : Bass Guitar

George Harrison : Lead Guitar

Ringo Starr : Drums

George Martin: Piano

2: The backing track was recorded in one take but the 3 person piano was later added as an overdub

John Lennon : Lead Vocals, Rhythm Guitar

Paul McCartney : Bass Guitar

George Harrison : Lead Guitar

Ringo Starr : Drums

Overdubs:

John Lennon , Paul McCartney , and George Martin: Piano

3: The song was done in one take without any overdubs, including the 3 person piano

John Lennon : Lead Vocals, Piano (middle end)

Paul McCartney : Piano (bass end)

George Harrison : Guitar

Ringo Starr : Drums

George Martin: Piano (high end)

4: The song had piano in the backing track, but also later had additional piano as an overdub

John Lennon : Lead Vocals, Rhythm Guitar

Paul McCartney : Bass Guitar

George Harrison : Lead Guitar

Ringo Starr : Drums

George Martin: Piano

Overdubs:

John Lennon , Paul McCartney , and George Martin: Piano

5: The bass was done as an overdub while John, Paul, and George did the 3 way piano on the backing track

John Lennon : Lead Vocals, Piano

Paul McCartney : Piano

George Harrison : Guitar

Ringo Starr : Drums

George Martin: Piano

Overdubs:

Paul McCartney : Bass Guitar

And here's a far out there theory that is most likely false but still more likely than the George played bass one just for the hell of it:

John Lennon : Lead Vocals, Rhythm Guitar

Paul McCartney : Bass Guitar

George Harrison : Lead Guitar

Ringo Starr : Piano

George Martin: Piano

Mal Evans: Drums

Neil Aspinall: Piano
