This is one of my all time favorite Beatles songs, the harmonies, the chord progression, and the Fender Stratocaster, Nowhere Man is to Fender what Mickey Mouse is to The Band Concert, it's impossible to listen to this song without thinking of a Strat and those harmonies are beautiful.

I just happened to listen to this one today! I love this song... everything mentioned above... the harmonies are sublime!

The guitar tone is so warm and bright on this song. As are the harmonies. Odd that such welcoming music couples with such bleak lyrics.

and in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make

I love how they chose to use the Fenders here.

I know! They sound amazing. The ping at the ending of the solo is like a full stop.

Yes, so much treble, you could swim in it -- droooool a-hard-days-night-paul-7

I must beg to differ, however: it's more like an exclamation point!

I love treble in my guitars, the brighter the better.

That's one of the reasons why I love Johnny Marr's playing. 

Nowhere Man is one of my favourite tracks on Rubber Soul and I used to regard it as one of the best Beatles tracks. I think the simplistic structure lets it down slightly.

Could this be? A fellow Johnny Marr lover?

Yep, I believe I put him at number 5 on my top 10 guitarists list. 

He's up there with the greatest imo.

He was #1 on mine. Actually, Morrissey, Marr and Rourke could all be #1 on their respective lists for me (well, Rourke if not for Macca).

At the end of the Fender guitar solo in Nowhere Man, why does Paul say it's the place to be.
