Actually, the album credits state that "Paul plays 12-string electric, second lead", so it's Paul playing the solo at the end. The solo is also the same as the album version, it's just a different vocal take. Man, I'm a geekAndy - Omaha, Ne
The greatest song ever written about being a teenager. The demo version on the 'Let it Be'has the best Bob guitar work on it ever - to this day his playing at the end of the song never fails to give me goosebumps...Mister Whirly - Minneapolis, Mn
