Being a Beatles fan for most of my life I really enjoyed this video when it was shared with me by a friend on Facebook. It’s great since you get to hear a lost guitar solo by George Harrison on his song, “Here Comes The Sun” from the Beatles’ Abbey Road album. In the video we see Dhani Harrison, the son of the late guitarist, as he sits in a recording studio (presumably at Abbey Road) with George Martin, the Beatles’ legendary producer, and Martin’s son Giles. Together, they play with the mix of “Here Comes the Sun,” when the moment of discovery happens. The three of them stumble upon the long lost guitar solo that never made the final cut of the album. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
