Ever wonder which guy in the Beatles is playing the guitar? They were all guitar players right? There seems to be some mixed opinions about this.
It has been known for years that Geogre Harrison brought in Eric Clapton to play the leads on While my Guitar Gently weeps during the White Album sessions. I have often wondered who else is playing on that record. They were really starting to get on each other’s nerves by then.
Well, I was just reading a Beatles magazine that my daughter brought home for me and it has a articla about the recording of the Revlover album. It seems that Harrison was struggling with the solo on “Taxman”. He goofed with it for a few hours and Gearge Martin suggested that Paul give it a try.
So apparently Paul plays the guitar solo on Taxman. A Harrison song.
It says also that Paul plays the solo for the Lennon song Good Morning on the Sgt Pepper album. Geeze….Who knew?
Guess you can learn something everyday. Especially when your kid brings home a magazine.
