About a month back, we featured George Harrison’s long lost guitar solo on “Here Comes the Sun,” and you went gaga for it. Little did we know that George Harrison’s son, Dhani, was just about ready to unveil a new iPad app called The Guitar Collection: George Harrison. It runs $9.99, and it’s only available on the iPad, which hardly makes it an instance of Open Culture. But we love The Beatles around here, and the app does something fairly special. It gives you a high-tech introduction to seven George Harrison guitars, using 360° images, sound files, videos, and lots of text and factoids. The video above offers a quick tour of the app. In the video below, Dhani Harrison explains how the the app came together on the Conan O’Brien Show. Thanks for the heads up Liz.
