a-hard-days-night-ringo-8I checked the information on BeatlesBible site, and I'm not wrong. Should I reveal the answer?

Edit: There's a Fiddy : )

Oh you did a Fiddy lol!

You don't have to yet.  Though now I'm curious why BeatlesBible disagrees with Ian McDonald.a-hard-days-night-paul-10

Why yes that is a picture of Paul dabbing. Deal with it.

Fixing A Hole ?

It says both Paul and John played bass guitar which I find unlikely especially if it conflicts with Ian Mc-

paul-mccartney-facepalm_gifNevermind this is the one Beatles song on wikipedia where instead of getting the personnel from Ian McDonald they got it from GuitarWorld. Go figure.

Edit: hold up this is still weird.  On the Beatles Bible page it says this.

Bass guitar was recorded to track two, most likely played by John Lennon .

MOST likely? How? What does that even mean?

well this is what I found on http://www.beatlesebooks.com/f.....ing-a-hole

And, while engineer Richard Lush wasn’t present on this day, he is quoted in Andy Babiuk’s book “Beatles Gear” as saying:  "I do remember that Lennon played the bass on that track.  He used a Fender bass on it.  If you play the album you can pick it out because it’s very simple, and a ploppy sort of sound.  It didn’t sound as rich as Paul’s Rickenbacker bass." (According to Andy Babiuk's book "Beatles Gear," The Beatles did not have a Fender bass guitar in their possession until 1968. Therefore, the bass John could have used on this session was the right-handed Burns Nu-Sonic which was used by the band in 1966.)  However, George Martin, in his book "Summer Of Love," insists that Paul relinquished the keyboard role on the song to him while Paul took up his usual instrument of bass guitar.

However, the 2017 release of the 50th Anniversary Edition of the "Sgt. Pepper" album settles the issue once and for all.  It appears that 'take one' of "Fixing A Hole ," which was used for the finished product, was "bounced back to the four-track from another machine" to become 'take two,' as documented in the liner notes of the above mentined release.  'Take three,' which is contained on this reissue as a bonus track, shows that the obvious musician playing the harpsichord on the song is Paul as Neil Aspinall remembered, him singing lead vocals at the same time.  Therefore we can conclude that Richard Lush was correct when he assumed John was on bass, this being reiterated by Kevin Howlett's liner notes for the "Sgt. Pepper" 50th Anniversary release in 2017. This, of course, would leave the maraca playing to be by George Harrison , his lead guitar work being added in later as an overdub.  Mystery solved!

It's very confusing but I guess this means John Lennon played bass? Makes me wish someone thought to note it at the time.

Edit 2: that's an unfortuantely placed "..." for the linka-hard-days-night-john-6

Why yes that is a picture of Paul dabbing. Deal with it.

Yeah that's the one @Kaniffee !

Honestly I'm not familiar with these issues, like, who played which instrument when recording. To provide clues I just rely on the BB information, but I should've realized that some info isn't certain.ahdn_paul_01
