    Default George Harrison

    i am in another heavy Beatles mode..
    go ahead and laugh, but i love the music, the band, the whole thing.
    im currently dissecting the album "Help", and am discovering new things every day..
    what i want to ask is regarding GEo Harrison and his playing.
    I love it, in its simplicity and his progressions and fills..but also his innovation.
    For example, i am listening to a song he wrote called "I need you"..here's the wuestion...
    in that song, is he pioneering Volume swells? I swear he is...go listen and pls give your opinion..!

    I'll have to dig out "I Me Mine" (the book) later and see if he had anything to say about it.

    I can tell you that the Cream song "Badge" got it's name because that's what it looked like it said where Harrison had actually written "Bridge"!

    I'm not up on swells, or whatever techie term you speak of.

    I am however, a big fan of the late great Mr. Harrison.

    The tribute concert to him that Eric Clapton and friends put together on the first anniversary of his passing was awesome and covered a lot of his work. I highly recommend it if you don't have it already.

    Sorry for the intrusion, I know you asked a musical question, but I couldn't resist.

    It is George after all.

    that can be proven just by listening to the songs. take a listen to "I Feel Fine"....right there at the beginning. 1965.

    Both wrong.

    Harrison used a common volume pedal for "I Need You".

    Feedback was first "pioneered" on a 1950's recording "Rumble", by Linc Wray.
    It was the first instrumental ever banned by American radio stations.

    the magic of the early Beatles hits me every so often. It never really goes away, it just comes on in giant waves every so often and i rediscover them and something new as well.

    Chef, while you know i respect your knowledge, i disagree with you on Harrison.
    I'm not saying you were wrong, but i need some kind of documentation, which i havent found yet...of course, i havent looked too hard yet either..
    Did volume pedals even exist then?
    and if you listen closely, there are a couple of different ways he uses the effect in the song.
    Of course, in technical terms, even if he was using a volume pedal, he was still doing "volume swells" more or less, just not using the obvious knob...

    And as for Lennon and feedback, McCartney said that he(john) leaned his guitar against his amp and the feedback happened...but he was stoned, so he went and played with it...
