The Beatles "I Feel Fine" With and Without Vocals

Here's an interesting comparison of an early take of The Beatle's hit "I Feel Fine." The first half of the video is a just the backing track and the second is the final product.

1) The take without the vocal isn't the final backing track because the drum beat is different. In the final version Ringo is playing a sort of Latin beat with a tom fill during the verse.

2) John Lennon's feedback guitar in the intro is one of the first examples of that every happening on record. Remember, this was back in 1964, but feedback would become commonplace in rock in only a few years down the road.
