George Harrison in The Beatles

George Harrison in The Beatles

The guitar solo from The Beatles’ 1969 hit single ‘Here Comes The Sun’ has been discovered after 43 years. The solo, which failed to make the final cut of George Harrison’s major contribution to The Beatles’ 11th studio album ‘Abbey Road’, was found by Harrison’s son Dhani, Beatles’ producer George Martin and his son Giles during a visit to the studio which gave its name to the album.

In a video, which you can see by scrolling down to the bottom of the page and clicking, the three men are sat at the mixing desk playing the original master tapes of ‘Here Comes The Sun’ when they stumble upon the solo, which Dhani Harrison admits he had no idea existed. ‘Here Comes The Sun’ has been covered by numerous artists since its release in 1969, with soul singer Nina Simone, singer Pete Tosh, folk star Richie Havens and Swedish doom metallers Ghost among those to create new versions of the single.

George Harrison was the subject of a new documentary from Oscar winning director Martin Scorsese earlier this year.
