One of Pauls best raving vocals in my opinion. Just the sheer confidence of it, the Barnum energy, is infectious. And that wordless bragging guitar, just great. I'm used to the stereo version where the guitar is clearer, but the mono version is worth the listen, it packs a wallop.

Funny you should mention the guitar in this: today I was listening to the isolated rhythm guitar. John got bored after 20 seconds, it would appear, and tried to be really funky and weird.

If one doesn't have the rhythm guitar to this, one needs to get hold of it. It is a perfect example of how much John was doing in the way of drugs at that point.

Funny you should mention that, it's actually Paul on rhythm guitar, not John.

I thought Paul did lead on this, not rhythm.

It's a Paul song which means Paul pretty much did everything.

Here's as detailed of an instrumentation I can give you:

Backing Track:

Paul McCartney: Rhythm Guitar

John Lennon: Bass Guitar (1966 Burns Nu-Sonic)

George Harrison: Lead Guitar

Ringo Starr: Drums

Overdubs:

Paul McCartney: Lead Vocals

The Beatles with Mal Evans and Neil Aspinall: Harmony Vocals

James W Buck, Neil Sanders, Tony Randall, John Burden: French Horn

Paul McCartney: Lead Guitar (1964 Fender Esquire)

Paul McCartney: Bass Guitar (1964 Rickenbacker 4001S)

George Martin: Crowd Noise Sound Effects for the intro and outro

The main lead guitar is Paul although you could consider George's part on the backing track lead as well.

For me, it is one of those songs that I like both in mono and stereo.  I usually prefer everything in stereo! a-hard-days-night-paul-7

Take 10 RM1 is interesting for the original tail of the song prior to the splice/segue into With A Little Help From My Friends. Also, I never knew it was Paul on rhythm guitar as well. I don't hear that much sloppiness in the rhythm track on the mogg, careless perhaps but chuggy.

Totally agree. What a great opener - so much going on. If you dropped the needle on this album for the first time, you would be hard pressed to not want to hear more after hearing this gem.

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.
