George Harrison’s Lost Guitar Solo: Here Comes The Sun
As a life-long audiophile, I’ve always found it fascinating to read and watch stories behind the music – especially in regards to the production and studio work that goes into the songs we hear. I recently discovered this gem online via a production forum that I read on a regular basis.
The video shows Beatles producer George Martin – along with his son Giles (who is now in charge of the studio recordings made by the Beatles) – as they “play” with the mix of Here Comes The Sun from the master source tape. By soloing out a different track or two, they discover a long-lost George Harrison solo that didn’t make the final mix of the song. It appears that even George Martin forgot that it existed.
