The Beatles - Here Comes The Sun 1969

"Here Comes the Sun" is a song by George Harrison from The Beatles' 1969 album Abbey Road.

he song, one of Harrison's best-known Beatles' contributions alongside "Something", originated from a song-writing collaboration between Harrison and close friend Eric Clapton called "Badge" (recorded by Clapton's group Cream), which featured an arpeggiated guitar riff that is similar to the one that forms the bridge of "Here Comes the Sun". The year 1969 was a difficult one for Harrison: he was arrested for marijuana possession, he had his tonsils removed, and he had quit the band temporarily. The song was written while Harrison was away from all of these troubles.

Harrison, McCartney and Starr recorded the rhythm track in 13 takes on 7 July 1969. John Lennon did not contribute to the song as he was recovering from a car crash.[2] Towards the end of the session Harrison spent an hour re-recording his acoustic guitar part. Harrison capoed his guitar on the 7th fret, resulting the final key of A major. He also used the same technique on his 1965 song "If I Needed Someone," which shares a similar melodic pattern. The following day he taped his lead vocals, and he and McCartney recorded their backing vocals twice to give a fuller sound.

A harmonium and handclaps were added on the 16th of July. Harrison's guitar solo was overdubbed on 6 August, and the orchestral parts were added on 15 August. "Here Comes the Sun" was completed four days later with the addition of Harrison's Moog synthesizer part.[3]

In other news, I have added the lyrics to this song so you can sing along, or perhaps learn the song! This is how I learned my first Beatles song! Enjoy :)
