I'm not surprised that no one has mentioned Dig A Pony, as it is often overlooked due to John's dislike, I suppose. The guitar work, all throughout the song, is one of my favorite amongst the Beatles catalog. Another favorite is the work on I've Got a Feeling, especially that sense of 'falling' it gives after the chorus. If I recall correctly, it is John who plays it. And of course, I admire Here Comes The Sun mainly because of the simplicity of the chords George used to create a unique, impeccable melody.  Then there's the intro to In Spite Of All The Danger which obviously is nothing spectacular, but has found its way to my heart nonetheless. And so many more...
I have a friend who often teases me with, "The lead guitar on While My Guitar Gently Weeps is the best from all the Beatles songs." If nothing, he earns a smack in the head every time.

Thing is, he might be right. That guitar is brilliant.

For me, And Your Bird Can Sing and I've Got A Feeling are the two that jumped directly in to my mind.  Wah-Wah from All Things Must Pass also has some great guitar from George and Clapton

Yeah, I think I'd have to agree that the WMGGW guitar is, if not the best, certainly one of them. I wish I believed otherwise, but I don't. I'm actually quite a big fan if Clapton. Again, in a strange way I kind of wish I didn't.

Moving along in our God given ways, safety is sat by the fire/Sanctuary from these feverish smiles, left with a mark on the door.

Just so I wouldn't be wrongly understood: I love Eric Clapton, and his collaboration with George. His guitar solo on While My Guitar Gently Weeps  is impeccable.

Hi there,

 

I really like the guitar stuff on 'I want you (she's so heavy)'... the whole track is a masterpiece, but the arpegios, guitar sound, and the solos are just outstandingly amazing :)

Thank you.

Johns guitar in Day Tripper is obviously amazing and while its the better of the two guitars in that song, George's is great too, and compliments Johns so well. I love the scale George plays in the background during the solo. Definately an amazing guitar part!

I've been listening alot to the bond created between some paul's Bass and george's lead (Paul and john's rythm)! It'S just fantastic!For the guitar parts we all agree that their guitar playing are mostly impeccable on almost every style of music, for the country side, you've got to remember: I Don't Want To Spoil The Party, just for the WOWsomeness of the rythm guitar and the typic western ballad style of the bass, such an ironic title for the feels that I get while i'm listening to this... alot of happiness actually. Ive just seen a face, a great One making the end of Help!UK but you folks have to give it a try on the Rubber Soul US Album, it just flow so perfectly in the Rubber Soul concept.  wow such master, making my songwriting skills even better after listening them over the years, along with nick drake and few others, they're the top of the finest music or what i call, pop, like very melodic yet rockin super powerpop like elliott smith,david bowie,Brian Wilson ahahah ahahah

Does anyone know who George's favorite guitarists were? I've never heard anything about his early influences and developments as a musician!

Thanks Guys.

Carl Perkins for sure. That's why one of George's early stagenames was Carl Harrison.

Great thanks for the info Mr. Kite, I'll be sure to check out Carl Perkins. I've know some of his music as I have been to Memphis Sun Studios where Carl used to record with Sam Phillips but I'll be sure to check out some more of his records!!

@beetlelover Carl Perkins (as Mr. Kite said), Bill Justis (whose Raunchy was his audition piece for John), Scotty Moore (Elvis' lead guitarist), Eddie Cochran, Buddy Holly, Gene Vincent's lead guitarist Cliff Gallup, Bert Weedon (whose book Play Guitar in a Day was a starting point for many of the UK guitarists of the '60s), Big Bill Broonzy... I could go on.

YEEEEEEEEEESSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! beatlemaniacs_02_gif

Don't forget all that mind-searing stuff on "The End". John's triplets on All My Loving are amazing too. And George's neat little riff on "It's Only Love". And his underwatery-sounding lead on Octopus's Garden... 

I could go on all day, disregarding whether or not a thing has been mentioned, but I'll save it for later. Thanks to the Beatles, I'm a guitar freak. a-hard-days-night-george-9heart
