  And anyone who hears - hears that voice so free

He really got a hold on me

Thank you for thinking me capable of tabbing it, very flattering! I can play it, writing it down, however, is beyond me. But this is how I learned to play it, maybe that's a way for you too: As almost all of Harrison's solos, it is very melodic. I sang phrases from the solo and then tried to emulate them on the guitar. The notes come almost naturally once one starts. Can't say much more, I'm sorry.
But ... what a wonderful song, isn't it?

Hey! Thanks for the suggestion. I will definitely take your advice. And yeah, it is a wonderful song... one of his bests in my opinion.

I really enjoyed playing your version of this tune. You have done such an amazing job!

Also, I realized you have shared a lot of George's tab and all of them are pretty accurate so I just wanted to say thank you! You really captured the essence of these songs.
