    This man grew hair fast so its absolutely possible this was just 2 months earlier or something. Or after you saw him and he cut it

    I have always been obsessed over this solo from the studio version.

    I love George as a guitarist, but have always felt (just a theory) he learned this from someone else (perhaps Paul?), since it seems to be more "composed" and fluid than any other thing he played during that time (with perhaps the sole exception of the solo on "All My Loving").

    Nah, everyone knows he was great, except wankers and shredders.

    Maybe due to Paul and John, but not from our side of the fence...there was little doubt from the beginning of George's guitar ability in the Beatles and the band knowing who the guitar big dog was.

    I remember in the film Nowhere Boy, when Paul brought George to meet with John for the first time on a bus...George blew him away and was in the band instantly.

    They used a lot of cabaret, song and dance Vaudville kind of stuff on stage and recording sessions - it's a Brit thing, at least back then it was.
    I like the little ' blip ' at the end of the riff...it's a dance move, sorta like. (Flamenco ?)

    and look at Ringo in perfect time with George during that riff - consummate absolute professional musicians they were.

    Very nice bass playing here as well. Relatively basic playing with tasteful amounts of technical features, but the bass drives this song.

    Who do you fancy on bass? I'd vote for Carl Radle.

    In August 2019 the planets aligned and somehow I was able to attend Steve Kimock’s weekend class at Fur Peace Ranch. Steve is big on steel and slide.

    During one session Kimock praised Harrison’s slide playing. He demo’ed it by playing Harrison’s slide bit on a Brenda Carlisle song. Sort of worked it into serving the tune.

    I remember first band I joined, we always finished with "Hard Day's Night". Just seemed a "fitting" song to end and even tho we were "dog tired" it always came out well.

    One of my favorites of all time.

    It was said that the title of that came from something that George's wife Olivia used to say (when George was amped up and animated over friends coming over), "Cheer down, old sport," or words to that effect.

    :)
