Here Comes The Sun: The Lost Guitar Solo by George Harrison

Here Comes the Sun — it’s one of George Harrison’s contributions to Abbey Road (1969). And, among the many great Beatles’ songs, it’s my sentimental favorite. While we’re feeling sentimental, let me bring you this — Dhani Harrison, the son of the late guitarist, returns to the recording studio (presumably at Abbey Road) with George Martin, the Beatles’ legendary producer, and Martin’s son Giles. Together, they play with the mix of “Here Comes the Sun,” and then the wondrous little moment of discovery happens. They stumble upon the long lost guitar solo that never made the final cut. Enjoy….

    Awesome!

  • ZolarKingOfMoney

    Great! But I have s feeling Salaman’s reccomendation of this might just earn him a SECOND death fatwa. Sooo decadent!

  • Mike

    This probably makes me the bad guy but the solo’s kinda ambling and noodly. i’m not surprised they didn’t use it.

    Sony ATV pub & emi attempts to prevent free sharing of art, culture & expression will hopefully be curtailed asap In the meantime, I’m glad I saw this beautiful video before it was blocked.

    Salman Rushdie gave me a good recommendation for curry takeaway. He told me me to keep it a secret though.

    i don’t know how dhani, or even george for that matter, don’t instantly burst out in tears. maybe they are used to hearing voices from the past. i’m not. i just collapsed. and true, the guitar solo is not worth keeping, but still. what a great emotional moment.

    Have you heard that Salman has written a new book? It’s called “The Buddha’s a big, fat bastard!”

    Not a very good lead. It should stay lost.
