These were for the most part practices, be that as it may, in light of the fact that they wanted to record the expert track at Trident Studios to use their eight-track recording machine (Abbey Road was still restricted to four-tracks). One take from 29 July is accessible on the Anthology 3 CD. The expert track was recorded on 31 July at Trident Studios. As per Trident's originator Norman Sheffield, before recording occurred, Mal Evans, the Beatles' partner and buddy, touched base at Trident with a truck brimming with pot plants and an expansive tea midsection. He was met by Sheffield who looked in the midsection and observed that it was loaded with corn chips and steaks. Sheffield told Mal that they had a full kitchen upstairs and that the sustenance wouldn't be vital. Evans demanded the pot plants, nonetheless, and said that "the young men" needed the plants in the studio to make the spot "delicate." Four takes were recorded; take one was chosen. The melody was finished on 1 August with extra overdubs, including a 36-piece symphony for the tune's long coda, scored by George Martin. The ensemble comprised of ten violins, three violas, three cellos, two woodwinds, one contra bassoon, one bassoon, two clarinets, one contra bass clarinet, four trumpets, four trombones, two horns, percussion and two string basses.
As per Norman Sheffield, there was a considerable measure of dissention to begin with. "A percentage of the artists were looking down their noses at the Beatles, I think. Paul grabbed on this and went up against them straight away: 'Would you folks like to get fucking paid or not?' he said. That thought their psyches pretty well...they soon fell into line." During the initial couple of takes, Mccartney was miserable with the vitality and energy the symphony was putting into it. So he remained up on the fabulous piano and began leading the symphony from that point. While including sponsorship vocals, the Beatles inquired as to whether they would applaud and chime in to the abstain in the tune's coda. Most agreed (for a twofold charge), yet one declined, supposedly adage, "I'm not going to applaud and sing Paul Mccartney's wicked melody!"
Ringo Starr just about missed his drum prompt. He exited for a latrine break—unnoticed by alternate Beatles—and the band began recording. In 1994, Mccartney said, "Ringo exited to go to the latrine and I hadn't perceived. The can was just a couple of yards from his drum stall, however he'd gone past my back regardless I thought he was in his drum corner. I began what was the genuine take, and 'Hey Jude' continues for a considerable length of time before the drums come in keeping in mind I was doing it I abruptly felt Ringo tiptoeing past my back rather rapidly, attempting to get to his drums. Also exactly as he got to his drums, blast, his timing was completely faultless."
