Here Comes The Sun - the lost guitar solo

Sorry if this was posted before - it's pretty awesome listening to it. You kinda realize why they left it out but it's just so cool listening to George playing.

Abbey Road had his best playing imo - when you listen to his solos on the early Beatles stuff, it's remarkable how he improved so quickly. I guess playing in the best band in the world helped : )

I had never heard that, thanks...
George was by FAR my favorite member in that band.
It was interesting watching the HBO documentary.
(Sir) George Martin had quite a hand in the final product the Fab-Four put out to market.

Very cool. I understand why they left it out of the mix, but I love how appropriate to the tune the solo is. That is so George Harrison.

Great little clip, there are sooooo many different ways to mix that song, they could probably make at least 10 great and very different mixes..

True. It really shows the value of people in a creative space getting it all on tape first, and sorting it out later, if only to have access to all the options.

I dont know enough about recording and mixing but I always find these vids sound more interesting. Maybe it is because I am so used to hearing the original but it seems like you just hear everthing more clearly.. does that make sense or am I just rambling?

I think they were bringing the levels up on certain tracks differently so you are hearing certain things more prominently.

I haven't seen the George HBO special, is this clip from that?

Wow, such an interesting little vid. Sooo much going on there, personally, musically, techinically, professionally...all in one tight little take. Agreed, way cool to hear George's solo and his thinking about where the song might've gone.

But you bring up a great point that crossed my mind as well...wouldn't it be fun to hear the original tracks of really well-known songs, only mixed differently. Good heavens, you could teach an entire mixing/composing class on that subject. :)

I have long thought it would be cool to bring in different production teams and let them have a go at mixing famous or non-famous tracks just to see what they come up with.

Why do the vocals sound clippy or processed in some strange way when solo'd?
I'd cut that guitar solo, too.
You can do better, George....(could)

Man, thanks so much for posting that. I was 9 years old when I saw the Beatles on Ed Sullivan, and those bountiful but relatively few years that did not seem few for me at that age impacted the tradjectory of my life maybe more than any other singular event.

I'm 57 now and time moves at a different pace. I wonder what else might be buried in those tracks and I'd certainly devote some time to exploring that. It really is amazing to me what these guys did. I never tire of it.

That was very kind of you to post. It is clear how much we all think of George. There is still so much to learn about those days it is really pretty amazing. Thanks for posting and I agree - I want to hear more! Where is this from?
