I looked to see if this is a duplicate thread! I really did! 

OK, so the title is kind of self-explanatory. I was listening to "Octopus' Garden" earlier, and I thought, "Man, that guitar is really something! I wonder if there's a thread where I can harp on about it!" So I sought, but did not find, and I made my own. 

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

I think the awesome guitar of "Octopus' Garden" may come from the solidarity George and Ringo had regarding compostions away from the Mighty Lennon/McCartney. I've always the Work Lennon did on Get Back and For You Blue, and George's work on And I Love Her

I know. It's just that I feel super embarrassed when I make a thread and realize there was a thread exactly like it on the first page of results.

Helter Skelter has a pretty badass guitar part.

Being more of an acoustic fan when it comes to the Beatles, Norwegian Wood, I Will, Here Comes The Sun, Girl, Blackbird, Cry Baby Cry and the acoustic version of While My Guitar Gently Weeps are some of my favorites. I also find it slightly shocking that no one ever mentions how incredible George's playing is on Till There Was You.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 That's a good point. Maybe because the song is not theirs, but you're right. the guitar is amazing. heart

That is a great guitar solo on the classical guitar. I wish George did more of those type of solos. The only other two songs I can think of with that type of guitar other than 'And I Love Her' was from his solo career: 'Dark Sweet Lady' and 'Learning How To Love You'

I've been trying to learn how to do "Till There Was You." It's hard!

Nice choice, Gnik - there was another thread where we had to chose our favorite guitar solo from George. I chose the Royal Command Performance version of Till There Was You.

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

Ah, I didn't see that, so I'm slightly shocked that no one other than Zig has mentioned the brilliant solo. a-hard-days-night-george-10

I like Old Brown Shoe, the guitar and bass blend pretty well to make a pretty killer song.

Strawberry Fields and Rain are the two songs where I just can't help but get lost in those guitars. Then Ringo wakes me up from my daze.
