Capo Classics: 15 Essential Guitar Songs Played with a Capo

"Here Comes the Sun"
The Beatles | Capo 7

George Harrison was fond of sticking a capo on the seventh fret of his guitar and playing songs in the "D" formation that sound like they're in A. He did it on the Beatles' "If I Needed Someone" and followed it up a few years later with 1969's "Here Comes the Sun," one of his greatest compositions.

You'll find two videos below. The first one is a "Here Comes the Sun" lesson by Jimmy Brown. Below that, you'll find a clip of Harrison playing the song live. Although we tried to find the superior two-guitar performance from the Concert for Bangladesh, this much later video below shows Harrison's fingering nicely.
