This song it a little underrated in my opinion.  Been listening to it a lot lately.  Fantastic tune.  heart

Every time I hear that guitar part that George plays though I think of the movie where Paul was being all bossy trying to tell him how to play it.  Poor George!  ahdn_george_05

"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!"

I personally love this, and the live version from the 2005 tour in Des Moines is BRILLIANT.

The opening of this song sounds just like All Things Must Pass , particularly the guitar demo. Every time I hear it I think, hey, that’s ATMP … wait a minute…

Anyone else notice the guitar riff in this song sounds a little bit similar to Elvis’s In the Ghetto? I did wonder if The Beatles had heard In the Ghetto as I think they watched Elvis’s comeback special during the same period as the Get Back sessions. But when I checked I think Elvis recorded his song a little later so it wasn’t done on the special.

So was the writer of In the Ghetto influenced by I’ve Got A Feeling ? Or other possibilities are there’s another song which both songs took their influence from or perhaps any similarity is pure coincidence. There is a song John wrote much later “I Know (I Know)” where he used a variation of the riff again.


Incidentally was the riff Paul’s or John’s?

This was the first Beatles song I ever fell in love with along with Don’t Let Me Down . I am currently listening to January 2, 1969 Let It Be sessions in which they really focused on this song, which made me realize me appreciation of again.
