‘While My Guitar Gently Weeps’ is an awesome guitar driven rock and roll song that was penned by George Harrison (little known to many, Harrison was actually the most accomplished song writer in the group, but wrote few of tunes as most were credited to Lennon/McCartney). Harrison wrote it for the Beatles on their famous Double Album, known to most as “The White Album.” This song was ranked by Rolling Stone Magazine as number 7 of 100 for the greatest guitar songs of all time and as number 135 out of 500 of the greatest songs of all time! With this tune, it is all about timbre and overriding guitar riffs that beautifully culminate and nearly match the ambiance and emotion that is set by the lyrics. In short: the lyrics say it all when it comes to this amazing guitar tune!
“I look at the trouble and see that it's raging, While my guitar gently weeps. As I'm sitting here, doing nothing but aging, Still, my guitar gently weeps. I look from the wings at the play you are staging, While my guitar gently weeps. As I'm sitting here, doing nothing but aging, Still, my guitar gently weeps.”It is worthwhile to note that this song has had numerous clandestine rumors surrounding it. Like Eric Clapton originally wrote it (untrue) or that famous “Paul is Dead” rumor, also not true. However, what is true is when George Harrison was inducted into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame they played this song quietly in the background. It was by far his best song ever, and one of The Beatles better tunes!
