A lot of people are telling me that Clapton plays the solo for that, and not Harrison. That sounds like a load of BS. Is it true?
Yeah, man.

Why would Harrison write a solo that he couldn't even play?
Yeah, man.

no, george brought clapton to the studio to make a song together. i think the basis was written by george. clapton only played the solo, but he wrote that part, not george.

Because it's not like Harrison released that song solo, he did it with the Beatles. And I think you're taking it the wrong way when I said "It seems a bit odd". I'm not doubting you, and I'm sure you would know better than I.

*EDIT* Nevermind, you two are very much correct : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/While_My_Guitar_Gently_Weeps
Yeah, man.

ow yeah i understand man, i didn't think you doubted my statement. it's true it may be odd, but george and clapton also wrote the song "badge" together, which is seen as a cream song. clapton is given credit for the song, but actually george wrote most of the song, including the bridge. i think they just enjoyed themselves collaberating to each others albums, they were good friends so why wouldn't they ofcourse. clapton also collaberated to george's first solo album "all things must pass".

You just made yourself look like an idiot. No one is doubting the skills of Harrison. In fact, I was watching a live video of it and Harrison can play the solo just fine.
Yeah, man.

ofcourse he looks like an idiot, he is one. he doesn't understand anything of the posts. looks like a little baby!

well it's his fault for calling other posters dumbasses while there's only one dickhead who talked shit about clapton but before you flame someone who bashed others, just have a quick glimpse through the thread first

and after checking the classic rock games thread out, i'd call strateer a dumbass and an idiot too

Clapton is said to play the solo.... However there are rumors that the Clapton solo wans't enough "Beatlesish" and they mixed it so it sounded different

Pay heed to this man, because he speaks the truth.

they didn't change the solo, they just doubletracked it. he still played it

yeah george also thought it would be a good idea to try and relieve some of the studio tensions between the beatles by introducing an outsider's influence. Luckily, it worked.
#18
Hey does anyone else HATE the synth replacing the heavy DUN DUN of the bass when he played it live? IMO makes it sounds to "pop"

Clapton and Harrison were good friends and colaborated for many songs. 'While my guitar gently weeps' and 'badge' have been mentioned, and I also know that Clapton played the solo in the song 'Wah-Wah' from Harrison's solo album 'All Things Must Pass'

On a similar note Donovan was also a good friend of the Beatles and I heard a rumor once that the voice saying 'quite rightly' in the song 'Mellow Yellow' is actually Paul McCartney.

Also, the solo on 'While My Guitar...' is amazing. That is all.
#21
Yea, Clapton and Harrison were very close friends. So close, in fact, that Harrison played at Clapton's wedding...to his (Harrison's) wife.


Sorry, this post is irrelevent. I have "Layla" playing on iTunes and it reminded me of that story.


EDIT: While My Guitar Gently Weeps features Eric Clapton. (now it is relevent)

One of my favorite solos of all time, and as said about 30 times YES Clapton did play it on the recording.
#25
^^People actually dispute who played the solo on the recording? I thought everyone knew Clapton played it.
