THE BEATLES - CRY FOR A SHADOW (Harrison/Lennon) Recorded

SAINTS and WHY, backing Tony Sheridan at the

Fiedrich Ebert Halle Hamburg on June 22 & 23

1961 for Polydor. First release in France on

April 1962 Polydor EP-21914. A side: WHEN THE

SAINTS/ CRY FOR A SHADOW. B side: MY BONNIE/

WHY.

It is obvious that John & George were having a laugh

imitating The Shadows, whose "Apache" was then a top

selling hit. That was the birth of this instrumental.

According to Sheridan, Lennon used his Gibson ES-175

through a Fender amp to record it. Some people said

that George could have used John's '58 Rickenbacker,

but hearing the track, it seems more likely that it

was the high action of his Futurama which was giving

him a little trouble, mostly while trying to play the

bridges.

I think it is not so obvious, however, that George used

John's Rickenbacker's tremolo bar or his Futurama's one

in a more than sparse way, let's say the first bending

of the four from the opening and recurrent solo guitar

phrase, at most. The other three bendings are too close

and he should have had to pluck the string as he lifted

the vibrato arm in a single movement. (?!) I also think

that a whole tone-up must have been hard to perform,

though Bigsby assured their tremolo arm could sharpen

or flatten a tone as much as a semitone (the semitone

downwards bending was the most usual at that time).

Although there are two guitars in this INTRO, which

we can find two more times along the track, as an

Interlude, I think it is pretty easy playing it as if

there was just one.

The parenthetical notes are not actually played, but

it is very easy keeping the fingering and they fit

perfectly.
