You can hear what a huge influence he was on both Mike Campbell and Tom Petty.
Well he was an excellent musician and guitar player.
That is artistry. Period.
For the stomp box crowd, on the Japanese tour which this is from, George had gotten into pedals, was using a TS-10, Dyna Comp, Ibanez Digital Delay and Boss CE-3 chorus (although not all on this one of course, I hear the dirt and the compressor and maybe some delay) into a Bassman reissue. Gorgeous sound on this clip.
to all you calling this a nice piece of "rhythm" work.... I'm gonna say, wrong, thats what a lead player did in the day. rhythm was strumming chords.... mostly full chords. the lead guitar made up a cute lick or two.... hopefully a "hook". the lead guitarist played the cute lick and some fill throughout the song. if he got a "lead" it was maybe a couple bars.... mostly playing the lick with some embellishments... add a slide and a trill or something. remember that in the pop music of the day, a hit song on the radio was 2 1/2 minutes... everything had to tight and to the point. Sargent Pepper blew that idea out of the water, but that was still the style George had perfected. yes, he expanded what he did on the guitar, but never really left that formula. where as you take Clapton (and others)... tear off into a solo that no one knows how long it will last and what notes will be played.... that was never George.
anyway... my point was that a good lead player is doing those background fills that add depth without being obtrusive.
just an observation from an old guy that grew up listening to lead guitar develop. I left out the bit about the guitar playing "the song" like the Ventures where there is no words.... thats a different type of lead.
George was playing some pretty sophisticated stuff at an early age.
He's 20-21 in this clip:
Bingo! Mike Campbell was the one player today that came to mind as the "1 in 10,000" when it was brought up in the earlier reply.
Assuming that it probably wouldn't have been the old blond Bassman he liked from the Abbey Road studio unless that's where the final takes of that track were recorded, this and the Rooftop recordings may actually prove that a Twin can breakup...at a volume that stops traffic.
And George's slide playing is absolutely fantastic and in tune. Instantly recognizable. Mike Campbell can also pull off some slide stuff, and tone, that also shows a lot of Harrison influence.
Thanks for posting this, OP.
Truly great, musical, accompaniment.
This is a master class in band membership where the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. Thanks for posting.
The video only goes a minute 50, where is this chord at 2:21?
I was gonna ask that too...do you mean 2.21 of recorded song (not video?)
yeah because 2:21 of the rooftop version does not have a resolve chord; it's sort of a passage.
Strange; I start the embedded video and for a second it says 1:50, but once it's playing it says 3:39. The OP video is indeed 3:39
I've heard this song many thousands of times and never really gave those fills much of a thought because ' that's how it's supposed to be '.
This isolated version really opened my eyes (ears, whatever).
Yeah, the clip in the original post is 3:39
What are you guys smokin
I just opened it again, it ends at 1:51. What's going on here. I'm sober too.
Here it is again from youtube.....1:51
that clip goes to 03:39
Either you or your computer is intoxicated, and needs it's cookies tossed. lol
I must be in the twilight zone. Getting the same thing at work and at home......vid ends at 1:51 for me
