Great Song.
I really find this to be a different sounding song for the Beatles, with a rather spooky feel..with great Harmonies from Mccartney/Harrison.
 I feel Yes it is, shares the same feeling and structure to This Boy.although the former offers a more dark-natured listen.

Beautiful use of the wah-wah from George too.

Lovely song.

John says " That's me trying a rewrite of THIS BOY, but it didn't work".


It works for us, Johnny!

Yea, I do remember reading somewhere that he wasn't too pleased with Yes It Is.  It ran off the same chord changes, or at least similar chord changes, to This Boy.

Personally, I think it's great, but This Boy is superior IMO.

actuallly, it was volume pedal......not a wah-wah........

Great song, great chord changes, great harmonies and in case no one noticed, the last 4 guitar notes (using a volume pedal....probably an ernie ball volume pedal) were a blatant ripoff of a passage from Sleepwalk, by Santos and Johnny.

 "When I Get Home" is a song that never even gets mentioned! Has to be one of the best sung songs ever for John!

When I Get Home is one of my favourite songs on the AHDN album.

About Yes It Is: I love that song! It does sound like This Boy but it's better. The Anthology version is good too.

Not one of my favorites

Anyways, how long has Ernie Ball stuff been around? I know of it from the 80's, but i'm not a guitar person at all.
