But we tried it, Walkin With A Mountain - Mott The Hoople - Rock And Roll Queen with riff, and it sounded like an A-side, so we decided to release it just like that.
At the time of the song's recording, the Beatles, having mastered the studio basics, had begun to explore new sources of inspiration in noises previously eliminated as mistakes such as electronic I Feel Fine - The Beatles - Beatles Greatest , twisted tapes, and talkback. Artists such as the Kinks and the Who had already used feedback live, but Lennon remained proud of the fact that the Beatles were perhaps the first group to deliberately put it on vinyl. After a brief note of heavy feedback see belowthe intro begins with a distinctive arpeggiated riff which starts in D major before quickly progressing to C major and then G majorat which point the vocals begin in G.
