While adding the Platinum Weird version of "This Guitar" to my Harrisongs Web site I was naturally bummed to find that the original download location has been shut down. It dawned on me to check the Wayback Machine, and sure enough it's there! If anyone else never got the chance to download this track, here it is! http://web.archive.org/web/200.....guitar.mp3

Here is some information regarding this recording.
A source close to the project regarding the new version of "This Guitar" tells me some new recording on the song took place on Saturday 3/18/06 at Mark Hudson's Whatinthewhathe? Studio in Los Angeles. Adding to the track was Ringo on drums and tambourine, Hudson on bass and background vocals, and Dhani Harrison and Dave Stewart on electric guitars. And, yes, that is George playing that beautiful acoustic guitar in the opening (as well as singing). The original recording, by the way, is from 1992, says the source. Matt Hurwitz

Thanks for that bit of info, Inner Light! I hadn't come across it yet. I have come across a post that discusses the track on another forum which predates March 2006 though (Here it is). I'm not sure how Ringo, Dhani etc. could have worked on it in March if the track had been released at least a month earlier! Oh well. It just adds to the mystery I guess. Haha.

I apologize in advance, but, er, are you guys sure that is George’s voice? It doesn’t sound like him… Why does he sound so different from the George of The Beatles or Cloud Nine? Maybe it’s me though. And yes, definitely he isn’t playing the lead guitars; that’s not his style of playing, nor is it his sound. I liked the song, by the way; the chords progression is beautiful. Cheers,
