Whatever the tool he used, the playing is still sublime.
Thanks. That just made my day.
I love that chord he resolves to at 2:22, and the overtones there. What the heck would you call that chord?
It strikes me that his work on this song is very cropper-esque in ways
It is a very "R&B" type part. I find it similar in style to his playing on Cream's "Badge".
Thanks for sharing this link.
One of my favourite songs (let alone Beatle songs) of all time.
He is restrained, subtle and a true master of his craft
I didn't try to figure out what the chord is, but it *sounds* like a major 7th chord to me.
Its interesting that the low strings sound completely dead, almost like flatwounds.
And it sure sounds like a Tele to me, not a Les Paul.
thats a really nice rhythm work!
Beautiful to hear like that.
I keep seeing reference to his playing something "simple".
To my listening it is not simple at all, and all the things he does here are probably more complex than most technically better players would create in the time.
It kind of makes me sad to hear because of his recognition compared to John.
When John died he was all over radio for days.
When George died he was hardly heard at all in the following days, almost as if radio professionals didn't even know who he was.
Tasteful and Masterful Guitar work by George.
I just did the math, he was only ^%$#ing 25 when he played this stuff.
John's part (barely heard here), is kind of the same fingerstyle stuff he did on "Julia" and "Look At Me".
I love this. If I were writing a song and I played something like this, I would feel like I wasn’t doing enough. Proof positive that feelings aren’t facts.
I remember the first time I heard Clapton’s isolated guitar on While My Guitar Gently Weeps I felt a similar feeling. Like, it sounds so rough between the “lead” bits, but that is exactly why it sounds so wonderful in the mix.
One of my all-time faves! I play this, "Something," and "The Wind Cries Mary" whenever I'm testing out new guitars or amps...just go-to songs that have nice, ringing chords and have finger positions up and down the neck instead of just cowboy chords.
I'm not near a guitar, but if anyone's interested, tomorrow I can post the finger positions for that beautiful, chimey chord at 2:21 (while John is playing E, E sus 4, E, just like the Eagle's "Peaceful Easy Feeling").
His slide playing was his lead playing.
It was his voice.
Ry Cooder fer chrissakes, is in awe of his touch and melodic aspect of his slide playing.
For those not hip to the slide hierarchy, that's like Pablo Casals saying he loves to hear you play cello, or Richard Pryor saying he thinks you're a funny m****rf****r.
Geoff (fussy "Jeff") Emerick ? Who knows what he heard. But like I said, George's slide playing is at least as masterful as the best McCartney bass line - and I'm betting Paul would agree.
George's slide playing? You mean like this?
From memory, it's 6th open, B string in 9th, G in 8th, D in 9th, open A. Let her ring!
ahh, open strings arranged around one of those arrowhead-trio chords (my completely musically-ignorant term) Those are often special
