Beatles Examiner has highlighted a youtube video (below) which has Dhani, George Martin and Giles Martin listening to separate tracks of Here Comes The Sun. So you get to here George's lead vocal, the orchestration by George Martin but also a guitar solo from George that was never used. Something George Martin had forgotten about.

Its great to hear, a real delight.

It actually excites me when stuff like this comes out.

mmrm - thanks so much for sharing that. These types of clips excite me as well.

My favorite part was from 1:00 to 1:30 when Sir George's expression goes from mild bewilderment over George's unused guitar solo to sheer joy with his "air cello".

A great find - thanks again.mal-evans

Thanks for the video. I would have been interesting to hear the whole song again with the guitar solo added into the mix.

The further one travels, the less one knows

I believe so. I only have a promo 2-disc copy of the deluxe version, and it's one of the bonus clips on that (there are no other studio clips, the rest are mostly interviews). According to amazon.co.uk the Here Comes The Sun sequence ^^^ is on the DVD, Blu-ray and the deluxe box set, though I can't verify that.

I agree with Inner Light - I'm sure there's a way to juxtapose that guitar onto the song.

Maybe it's not that great (maybe there's a reason it didn't make the cut!)

Its not a mind bending earth shattering solo but to hear any thing unreleased nowadays is a delight. I get excited about longer intros and outros to bbc sessions and home demos, i want to hear everything. To hear them in the studio talking is fantastic to me. I might then decide to ignore it from there on in (Whats The New Mary Jane for example) but at least ive heard it.

Very sad but i dont care.

 

And ive yet to hear an outtake thats better than the commercial version. The Beatles did put out the best version of each song, and that includes unused handclaps, solo's, vocals or whatever.

Can you imagine how cool that would be? To go through all these individual and sometimes forgotten parts in the studio with George Martin…we can dream. Thanks for the video.

*watches Dhani understanding the tempo in the bridge, hears George Martin saying ''You're like a father'', gets chills*

This why Beatles should reunite with Dhani, Julian/Sean, and the rest of the who members (that was a joke, but Zak Starkey played with the Who, as well).
