Before the session ended at 5am a reduction mix was made of take 14. The tape machine was running slower than usual during the mix - at 42½ cycles per second rather than the usual 50 - which lengthened the song from 3'53" to 4'53".
While My Guitar Gently Weeps was then set aside until 3 September 1968, when it became the first Beatles song to feature eight-track recording at Abbey Road.
