it sound great the bass sound on that album
Where did you get the idea that a studio musician played any bass on Sgt. Pepper? McCartney.
Didnt Beach boys use Studio musican ex Carol Kaye
i thought maybe the beatles did the same
Trollin', trollin', trollin', keep those bassists trollin', Rawhide!
Beatles didn't use any studio bassists that I'm aware of. They did use other musicians occasionally, though. For example, Billy Preston played some keyboards for them, and Eric Clapton played guitar on While My Guitar Gently Weeps. A Beatles completist, which I am not, could probably tell you every person who ever played on any Beatles record. They didn't rely on outside musicians nearly as much as the Beach Boys did.
She played on my album too.
We're playing the Jube on the 22nd.
"What studio musician played bass on SGR Pepper???"
Please tell me this is a joke.
The Beatles didn't use many session musicians. Other than George Martin, who played a few keyboard parts, the only session musicians on Pepper were the brass, woodwind & string players (and the entire orchestra on A Day In The Life). This is pretty much true on the rest of their albums too. The only notable exceptions are odd guests like Clapton on "While My Guitar Gently Weeps", and Billy Preston on the Let It Be sessions. Oh, and Andy White did drums on one of the versions of Love Me Do.
I'll be there! BTW Barbara is selling the Jube. She has cancer and can't keep up with running the place anymore.
Yeah, I know. Hope she recovers OK. Also hope that the place doesn't go downhill under the new management/ownership.
Paul even played the lead on Taxman, as well as bass. (not at the same time )
Do you think they'd be able to name the string Quartet that played with McCartney on "Yesterday"?
Paul also played drums on "The Ballad of John and Yoko". He sounds nothing like Ringo.
..or those used on "Eleanor Rogby"?
Or how 'bout the 1/2 orchestra used on that famous dissonant chromatic ascent on "A Day In The Life"?
What Beatles' song had female voices overdubbed in?
Andy White, I believe, was the drummer on "Love Me Do"; he also played on a version of "Please, Please Me"(check yer Anthology Disc #1)
George Martin was really intent on using White in lieu of Ringo for all the 1st album studio work.
There's pictures of Paul playing some of the drum kit along with Ringo as The Beatles' material got more demanding.
Ok who played the bass on the song "I will" on the Beatles white album?
Listen to it real close before you answer.
Yes, I do. And the names of their children and grandchildren too.

String quartet on Yesterday :
Violins : Tony Gilbert, Syndey Sax
Viola : Kenneth Essex
Cello : Francisco Gabarro
As for who played the bass on I Will - no-one did. The bass part was sung by McCartney.
And Eleanor Rigby, the octet was :
Violins : Tony Gilbert, Sydney Sax, John Sharpe, Jurgen Hess
Violas : Stephen Shingles, John Underwood
Cellos : Derek Simpson, Norman Jones
I could list the orchestra on A Day In The Life, but frankly, I can't be arsed
As for the female voices - Yellow Submarine had Patti Harrison (George's wife) and Marianne Faithful, and Yoko did some on "The Continuing Story Of Bungalow Bill" and "Revolution 9". The Mike Sammes Singers were used on a few tracks too ("Good Night", "I Am The Walrus"...).
