Here he is in the movie. 

Click this link: Another Girl  

I just double checked my answer using Joe’s article. Can you provide solid evidence proving that John in fact doesn’t play acoustic guitar on the song?

I hope this isn’t cheating but what the hell.

Here are notes handwritten by George Martin back in 1965.

According to George Martin himself, George played the acoustic guitar on Another Girl while John played his Fender Strat. I was considering PMing @Joe about it because it seems like he hasn’t read the notes yet.

I can hear the start being played along with the basic track, so I guess that’s George playing the embellishments on his strat. But if Paul overdubbed more lead guitar, what does he play. There are still unanswered questions, and the way they filmed the scene only makes it more confusing. George is playing one of John’s guitars, Paul plays a girl, they were so stoned during the filming they probably couldn’t remember who played acoustic guitar on the original.

Which takes of Strawberry Fields Forever are heard on the official release?  

Which one?

So far we have a Lennon demo, takes 1, 7, 24 (end of) + 26 (majority of). On the 50th deluxe we get 1, 4, 7 & 26. I can’t remember what makes up the ‘Love’ remix.

I could be wrong, but I think in Love(for all the songs) they used either the official version of the song, or the take(s) from Anthology. If that is the case, that should narrow it down.

No Googling allowed — and no reviewing the movie Help ! to help.

How many times did John dial his phone while kicking back in his sunken bed?

Cheers.

Well, since it seems a shame to waste a question…

Which photographer took the photograph used on the Twist And Shout  EP cover?

Fiona Adams, and the photo was taken in 1963 in London.

Not to be confused with another famous 1963 jumping shot of the Beatles (taken by Dezo Hoffmann in Liverpool), which is the current puzzle picture at: Beatles Imagery Game

Thanks, Ron.

Next trivia question:
What building had stood at the location (of the Beatles jumping on rubble) shown in Fiona’s photo?

What building had stood at the location (of the Beatles jumping on rubble) shown in Fiona’s photo?

Hint: The building was at the corner of Euston Road and North Gower Street in London, and it had been demolished for widening of Euston Road. The demolition area can be seen behind the Beatles in this picture:

An interesting question posed by @sir walter raleigh in 2017:

How many people have played in the Plastic Ono Band?

was not answered.

It’s difficult to arrive at a definitive answer, but I think it’s well over 50 people at one time or another.

And in the end

The love you take is equal to the love you make
