i'm just wondering about the first chord, is it played by one? or is it played by multiple people?

If its (the notes) G B D F A C and the B was a Harmonic, intentional or not as an overtone, the closest thing is a G11, and yes, its an ugly m2 dissonance, but that's what I would most likely call it.

If we don't include it, then G9 sus 4?

I wouldn't call it an add 9 at all since the b7 is there. Their chord interpretations are amusing with 2 of the 3 plain and simply wrong as far as my understanding of music goes.

(an 11 sus 4?!)

Best,

John Lennon: Fadd9 in 1st position on a Gibson J-160E 6-string acoustic guitar
Paul McCartney: high D played on the D-string, 12th fret on Hofner 500/1 electric bass
George Martin: D2-G2-D3 played on a Steinway Grand Piano
Ringo Starr: Subtle snare drum and ride cymbal

Possibly the most debated chord in the history of popular music

George Martin's contribution is what tends to throw people when trying to figure out what it is.
Actually called Mark!

Fadd9 plus a D gives us F6/9 (the G that Martin plays is redundant to the add9). Martin and McCartney invert it over the D, giving us Dm11

I'd agree with that ( if F is the bass, I haven't tried the song but I was under the impression that G was the bass note.) Analysis suggested it was in G, and a couple of versions indicate it was a G type chord. If so, then G11.

The bass and piano are both putting D in the bass, though, so I'd read that as our root.

does that mean a G7 in second inversion is D?

But I agree with sean, I say G11

No, G7 in second inversion is G7/D, but the extensions being played in this context complicate it a little bit. With no B in the chord, though, I'm very hesitant to label this chord a G of any type. Again, I'm saying Dm11
