Poll: Which Beatles Song Has the Best Guitar Solo?
Whether it was played by John, Paul, George or Eric, what's the best Beatles guitar solo?
In honor of the new Holiday 2011 issue of Guitar World -- an in-depth guide to The Beatles' albums, recording methods, songs and gear -- GuitarWorld.com is asking you choose the Beatles song with the best guitar solo.
We've included 60-plus guitar-centric Beatles songs for you to choose from.
You'll find tunes with fancy fret work by George Harrison ("A Hard Day's Night," "Old Brown Shoe," "Something"), John Lennon ("You Can't Do That," "For You Blue," "I Want You (She's So Heavy)") and Paul McCartney ("Drive My Car," "Taxman," "Good Morning Good Morning") -- and all three guitarists ("The End").
And, of course, there's a song featuring a very famous non-Beatle -- Eric Clapton ("While My Guitar Gently Weeps").
We hope you understand why we haven't included every single Beatles song with a guitar solo. For instance, the mini-solo in "I'll Follow the Sun" and the repetitive solo in "Dizzy Miss Lizzy" really have no place here. Having said that, if you truly feel we've left out your absolute favorite, be sure to let us know.
The results of the poll will be posted on GuitarWorld.com.
Thank you for voting!
