His work with the harp guitar is insane! He’s able to play the guitar and bass parts at the same time, and it works a beutiful and melodic harmony!In addition, he hits all the notes of the lyrics, making it easier for you to sing along!
Fun Fact: Eric Clapton played lead guitar on this song. He and George Harrison were good friends, but George had to convince him to come to the studio because Clapton was worried the other Beatles wouldn’t want him there. Clapton’s presence eased the mood in the studio at a tense time for The Beatles – they were at each other’s throats during recording of The White Album, but they all relaxed when Clapton showed up.
