George Harrison Lost Guitar Solo

Here is some sonic spelunking from the Martin Scorsese 2012 documentary Living In The Material World. Sir George Martin, Giles Martin, and Dhani Harrison are sitting at a mixing console listening to the stems of Here Comes The Sun. Sir George tells Dhani, “Try this” as he isolates his fathers lead vocal. “What do you think of that?” asks Sir George. “That’s great.” replies Dhani.

Giles pots up the string track commenting that “this and Something had great string arrangements on it.” Then he points out to Sir George; “Here  was a guitar solo that he played that never made the final cut” as Danhi slides the fader on a track never heard beyond the confines of Abbey Road.

Dhani, “It’s totally different to anything I’d ever heard.”
Sir George (to Giles), “We never used it?”
Giles, “No.”
Sir George, “I’d forgotten about that.”
Dhani, “I never even knew about it.”

Many thanks to Marco Moir for recommending this clip.
