Also, there are possibly two punch-ins on the track, indicating it was recorded in stages. The punch-ins can be heard at around and , but are much more audible in the 5. Never noticed those before..
I just had a listen now and the 2. Joe, can you get an interview with Clapton? Sorry — long time coming , I agree. I recommend a visit to your friendly neighbourhood ear doctor if you think the solo was Clapton and not Harrison. It is George through and through, his guitar playing in the Beatles just got better and better, with this solo perhaps the high point. He says George did it in one take with the orchestra. He saw him and do it! But he nailed it. Case closed. Well, if it were Clapton, it would have had to have been recorded at one of the May Sessions as he was on tour with Blind Faith for all the other dates.
Harrison had a distinctive way of choosing notes to play and bend like the bend of the 5th to the sixth in this song and for example Dig a Pony, if I recall correctly quite different from the usual pentatonics mostly used by Clapton and a host of others and was much more likely to do chord based things like to move from F to C here , so this song is not too much different from his single note playing in other songs.
Beautiful and melodic. The bass line is a song in itself! I read nowhere about a guitar overdub by john and i read many times that it was george on guitar, paul on guitar, ringo on drums, john on piano and billy on organ. Listen to the isolated track on youtube. Absolutely astounding guitar solo!
Emerick claimed that it was performed with a slide but because of the perfect pitch I found that hard to believe after all the story about layimg it down simultaneously with the orchestra is baloney. But George Harrison was an amazingly accurate slide guitarist and the evident punch-ins support the suggestion that it was performed with a bottleneck. Funny that it mentions Paul being asked to simplify his bass line.. Unusual to see George that assertive over Paul and a sign of reaching higher maturity.
But also because the bass line that is used, is, well, really intricate and not obvious or simple. It is one of the things that attracts me to the song quite a lot and brings out some of the intended harmonies and the notes that change and stay the same from chord to chord.
I will say that I also think that George gets insulted sometimes even when complimented. And Long, Long, Long is a favorite. The song is great because of how well it works as a whole. But I think that the first several chords are not some brilliant innovation in songwriting or anything.
Unless this is the first song to use that progression. But I think I hear the same first 4 chords in lots of songs. Kind of like how stairway to heaven or Michelle follow similar voice leadings. It sounds complicated, yet, it is just using basic existing tried and true ideas, that just happen to be a little more complicated than I IV V. Still, it is the way that it is used that makes it so memorable, and the way it is followed up by the rest of the chords of the A section actually the two chords after the first four are what make it for me… love that dominant II chord and the bridge.
Paul came up with the idea and then George wrote it? Yes, Mukunda Goswami even mentions this in the recent Scorsese documentary. And when you listen to the song with Krishna in mind, it makes it even more beautiful. Has he heard the song lately? In any case, Geoff rather gives his game away in his account because he makes it sound like the typecast version of The Beatles with fixed roles. As we know from listening to all the chit chat pieces since Anthology and Love not to mention bootlegs, there were no fixed positions when that band were at the blast furnace of creativity.
The good idea won out in the end because there were five people including George Martin who had to sign off a finished product. A beautiful song written by George Harrison in his finest form. This made John and Paul sit up and listen and they gave it due credit by giving it the A side. John Lennons Come Together is a great song in its own right. Together they make the perfect opening to the brilliant Abbey Road album.
I just love the beautiful rhythm guitar opening to that. It could work for Krishna too, in a more spiritual way, naturally. I love the drums too!! They let him do his thing and he totally nailed it, as usual. Regarding some of the wildly inaccurate comments about the guitar solo:. Check out some of the later live versions with Clapton playing lead and the difference is obvious. He clearly worked it out a melody and practiced it until he had it down, banged out a few takes, and kept the best one.
Absolutely agree. Every particle of this solo is signed by George Harrison. Tennessee Sticker. By alison4.
