  It is obvious that John & George were having a laugh 
  imitating The Shadows, whose "Apache" was then a top 
  selling hit. That was the birth of this instrumental. 
  According to Sheridan, Lennon used his Gibson ES-175
  through a Fender amp to record it. Some people said 
  that George could have used John's '58 Rickenbacker, 
  but hearing the track, it seems more likely that it 
  was the high action of his Futurama which was giving 
  him a little trouble, mostly while trying to play the 
  bridges. 
  I think it is not so obvious, however, that George used 
  John's Rickenbacker's tremolo bar or his Futurama's one 
  in a more than sparse way, let's say the first bending 
  of the four from the opening and recurrent solo guitar 
  phrase, at most. The other three bendings are too close 
  and he should have had to pluck the string as he lifted 
  the vibrato arm in a single movement. (?!) I also think 
  that a whole tone-up must have been hard to perform, 
  though Bigsby assured their tremolo arm could sharpen 
  or flatten a tone as much as a semitone (the semitone 
  downwards bending was the most usual at that time).
 


  Although there are two guitars in this INTRO, which 
  we can find two more times along the track, as an
  Interlude, I think it is pretty easy playing it as if 
  there was just one. 
  The parenthetical notes are not actually played, but 
  it is very easy keeping the fingering and they fit 
  perfectly.

About the artist behind Cry For A Shadow Tab:

The Beatles were a pop and rock group from Liverpool, England formed in 1960. Primarily consisting of John Lennon (rhythm guitar, vocals), Paul McCartney (bass guitar, vocals), George Harrison (lead guitar, vocals), and Ringo Starr (drums, vocals) throughout their career, The Beatles are recognised for leading the mid-1960s musical "British Invasion" into the United States. Although their initial musical style was rooted in 1950s rock and roll and homegrown skiffle, the group explored genres ranging from Tin Pan Alley to psychedelic rock. Their clothes, styles, and statements made them trend-setters, while their growing social awareness saw their influence extend into the social and cultural revolutions of the 1960s. After the band broke up in 1970, all four members embarked on solo careers.

The Beatles are one of the most commercially successful and critically acclaimed bands in the history of popular music. The Beatles are the best-selling musical group in history. In the United Kingdom, The Beatles released more than 40 different singles, albums, and EPs that reached number one, earning more number one albums (15) than any other group in UK chart history. This commercial success was repeated in many other countries; their record company, EMI, estimated that by 1985 they had sold over one billion records worldwide.[1] According to the Recording Industry Association of America, The Beatles have sold more albums in the United States than any other band.[2] In 2004, Rolling Stone magazine ranked The Beatles number one on its list of 100 Greatest Rock & Roll Artists of All Time. According to that same magazine, The Beatles' innovative music and cultural impact helped define the 1960s, and their influence on pop culture is still evident today.
