A lovely song.  I think this is John really working right at his limit picking-wise on the acoustic guitar.  I really like the chords too.  He is using the 'Travis Picking' technique that Donavan taught him in India.  You can tell from the Anthology version that it is stretching him.  No wonder!

I love Julia, there's nothing like it on repeat when you can't sleep-- because after that, you can. Works wonders. The stereo mix is a little annoying though, it starts with all the guitar in the right ear and then evens out at the end of the first 'Juuuulia'. I just tell myself it's like you're falling slowly into the song, like slipping underwater, but 'tis still annoying. 

Here is a lovely little song which I love with acoustic guitar parts that sound very like Julia

On a side note, I bet Paul would like 'A Pillow Of Winds', as it seems to be entirely concerned with that nice little state between sleeping and I which he finds so comfortable. a-hard-days-night-paul-7

I find Julia forgetable, whenever I try to think about the song, my brain switches over to Mother Natures Son.

So true that is.

Have never cared for it. My father on the other hand loved it, thinking it was one of the best tracks they recorded and would always say it should have been on 'Love Songs'.

The fingerpicking and chords progression are very nice, if you can play guitar then this song is a must. 

also the lyrics are beautiful.

Everything on it is so soft and gentle, like a windy smile, like a floating sky... a-hard-days-night-george-4
