Who played lead guitar ?
« on: September 17, 2014, 11:54:17 AM »

I just found out 2 bits of info I didnt know and that is that Paul played lead guitar on the title track of Pepper and John played lead on Every Little Thing

Can we compile a list of songs that George didnt play lead guitar on ?

Paul did everything except drums on Why Don't we Do it In the Road. So that's another.

I'd add You Can't Do That to the list.  George is playing his Rickenbacker 360-12 in the Hollywood Bowl video.  Watch John.  He plays lead on his Rickenbacker 325 at 1:29

Here's a breakdown showing George's part...


The Beatles: "You Can't Do That" (George's part) Rickenbacker 360/12C63 & '67 Gibson Skylark amp

John's lead is at 1:43

That's right. Georges lead work falls along the acoustic version. I'd say all 3 play guitar on Helter Skelter with George on bass as well.
