hi everyone

Now my questions are about Loser In The End. In the chorus there's a flanged noise in the left channel. I thought it was an organ but now I think it's a guitar with chorus effect. Can you guys confirm it?

The other question is about the additional percussion. Is it marimba, xylophone or cowbell?

Thanks

Having played mallet instruments in marching band, I can confirm that it is a marimba. Seems like our Roger was predating the fad of using a marimba/xylophone/mallet instrument in rock music well before the '80s! (although Bill Wyman played the vibraphone on 'Monkey Man' in 1969)

about percussion instruments, what the hell is that thing which sounds all the time in 'Funny How Love Is'?

and Masterstroke has only castanets or something else? (before anyone of you comes up with that, I know there's also drums, bass, guitar, vocals, harpsichord and piano but I mean additional percussive instruments)

Maracas, perhaps?
