ROCKOLLECTIONS: FINGER SNAPPING PT.5

What a year- this 2020 deserves an ASS-TERISK!
I'll try to help you escape it with more Finger Snapping Songs.
Starting with one by the Beatles I always thought had at least one Finger Snap- I actually think more than one- but I can't prove it.
The Snap is about 4 or 5 seconds into the song, see what you hear and think!
Finger Snapping doesn't get much Respect, even though it adds much to Our Music.
It's hardly ever listed as an Instrument, and can get lost in Hand Clapping- plus adding to the confusion are Drummers Hitting Their Drumsticks!
After the Beatles a couple of Definites, and that you definitely will know!
Then a trip to Finger Snapping Central, at Motown!
Give a listen, I am actually playing Hits, lol!

Jon,

NO!

A guy sent me a transcript of the recording session, finger snaps are all through the song.

Look, here is some of it:

Sexy Sadie

0:40
Very high pitched tone (around 13.5kHz) in the first "you laid it down for all to". It's low in level, and hard to catch without good headphones. Sticks through in pauses between words.
1:00
A click, and an errant "Oh!", which sounds like it's in the backing vocals.
1:11
Edit in the middle of the words "Sex/y Sadie". John's vocal becomes harsher here, and there's a click.
1:13
"Wa wa wa" cut off harshly (right channel).
1:15
Finger snaps/clicks.
1:18,2:42
Pitch of piano (whole track?) noticeably flattens.
1:33,1:42,1:46
Click/Noisy scratch in vocal track.
1:36
Misplaced bass note, left channel.
1:49-1:51
Finger snaps/clicks.
2:05
Some kind of noise moves from the right channel to just left of centre. This is in the "backing vocals" track, which are being ADT'd, hence the sound moves from the live vocal position (right) to the output of the ADT machine (panned a little left, lower volume).

So THERE, LOL!

Thanks for the listen,

Mike
