It could just be his "D" string. When tuning his gutar he intentionally left the D flat so Aunt Mimi could tell which guitar was his. It is much more noticable in "Twist And Shout ".
To the fountain of perpetual mirth, let it roll for all its worth. And all the children boogie.

Anyone ever notice the unintentional distortion on John's guitar starting around 30 seconds in? It sounds like he had a bad cable, but it works. I wish they'd tried exploiting it and done the entire song with a "fuzzy" rhythm.
I got no idea what you're talking about - but isn't "Chains " a great song??
Some of the best early Beatles harmonizing, imo!
Thanks for reminding me!
Listen to John's rhythm guitar right at the start of the 2nd verse, his first chord is distorted like it was played througn a fuzzbox. It goes "on and off" throughout the rest of the song, suggesting that it's a short in a cable or something.

I just noticed this distorted sound, and it's great. I thought it was George's guitar, though. It's funny how we can hear this kind of fuzz effect in this song when it is not their wildest number on the album. I'd say it is caused by the valves of their amps instead of a bad cable.
Anyway i think it's great. A little dirty sound in a little cute pop song
"I Need You by George Harrison"
