VIDEO: The Beatles – Lost ‘Here Comes The Sun’ solo found

The guitar solo from The Beatles' 1969 hit single “Here Comes The Sun” has been discovered after 43 years.

NME reports the solo, which failed to make the final cut of George Harrison's major contribution to The Beatles' 11th studio album “Abbey Road,” was found by Harrison's son Dhani, Beatles' producer George Martin and his son Giles during a visit to the studio which gave its name to the album.

In a video, the three men are in the studio listening to the Harrison classic when they stumble upon the solo, which Dhani Harrison admits he had no idea existed.

The solo kicks in at 1:01 in the following clip…
