Maybe the most famous song opener of all time. One chord on young master Harrison's 12 string Ric, announcing the arrival of Beatlemania. It's been long discussed by rock n roll music authorities as to what that chord is. Clearly there are differing opinions.

 

This link sheds some light.

Yes, the secret of the chord is now known.....However, it is still not well known that George put his 12 string Ric in a freezer for 5 hours before recording that opening chord...

 

THAT'S what gave it that EXTRA special awesome ringing tone........
