Pid plach gitary moyeyi #2 (While My Guitar Gently Weeps #2)

Дивлюсь, як у всіх вас любов засинає
Під плач гітари моєї.
Дивлюсь, що з підлог бруд давно не змітають,
В тім плач гітари моєї.

Не знаю як, й ніхто не скаже,
Любов вдихнути в вас.
Можливо хтось, одного разу,
Вас купить і продасть.

Я дивлюся на світ, не втомивсь він крутитись
Під плач гітари моєї.
На кожній помилці повинні ми вчитись,
В тім плач гітари моєї.

Не знаю чим вас спокусили,
Як заманили всіх.
Не знаю, що вас так змінило
Й ніхто не застеріг.

Дивлюсь, як у всіх вас любов засинає
Під плач гітари моєї.
Я дивлюсь на вас всіх…
В тім плач гітари моєї.

While My Guitar Gently Weeps (Song by George Harrison, The Beatles)

I look at you all see the love there that's sleeping
While my guitar gently weeps
I look at the floor and I see it need sweeping
Still my guitar gently weeps

I don't know why nobody told you
How to unfold you love
I don't know how someone controlled you
They bought andsold you

I look at the world and I notice it's turning
While my guitar gently weeps
With every mistake we must surely be learning
Still my guitargently weeps

I don't know how you were diverted
You were perverted too
I don't know how you were inverted
No onealerted you

I look at you all see the love there that's sleeping
While my guitar gently weeps
I look at you all
Still my guitar gently weeps

"While My Guitar Gently Weeps" — the most famous song by George Harrison from the album "White Album". He began to compose music for it in India, and the poems were finished after his return to England.

George: "I wrote the song "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" at my mother's house, in Warington. I was thinking about the "Book of changes". From the point of view of Eastern philosophy, everything that happens is predetermined, and coincidences do not exist — every little thing leads to a purpose. "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" was a simple study of this theory. I decided to write a song that was the first to see by opening any book associated with that moment and that time. I chose the book at random, opened it, saw the words "gently weeps" (gently weeps), put the book down and picked up the song".

Harrison later complained that John Lennon and Paul McCartney gave the song enough attention. And only part of Eric Clapton in the recording made them treat her differently.
George: "We tried to record it, but Paul and John are so used to churning out songs that at times they find it difficult to be taken seriously and my record it. Nothing happened. They didn't take it seriously, and I even hoped that they would agree to record it, so that evening I came back home thinking: "I wish!" — because I knew that the song actually was very good.
The next day I was driving into London with Eric Clapton and asked him, "What are you doing today? Why don't you go with me to the Studio and not play that song for me?" He replied: "no, No, I can't. Never before had recordings of songs "Beatles", others will not like it". I said, "Look, this is my song and I want you to play it".
And he came. I announced, "This song will be with us to record Eric". I'm not lost, because all at once began to try. Paul sat at the piano, has played a good entry and all the others are treated work more seriously ".

It was the first song Ringo played once in frustration left the band. He came to the Studio and found the drums the flowers in the sign of his return.

On 16 August, The Beatles returned to the song "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" with 14 doubles: Harrison played guitar, Lennon on organ, McCartney on bass and Starr on drums. September 3, did a few overdubs on the new eight-channel equipment "Abby road". Harrison worked for one and eight hours spent in the Studio trying to record a guitar solo.

The next day Harrison ordered two vocals, maracas, drums, and added a solo guitar. However, losing record, he decided to erase and start again. The remake started on the same day, recording 28 shots. Harrison played acoustic guitar, Lennon on lead guitar, McCartney on organ and piano and Starr on drums.
"While My Guitar Gently Weeps" was completed on 6 September. Eric Clapton played the solo, but it has not been identified as to authorship. During the construction of the solo was processed by the Varispeed algorithm to render it more "Beatles" sound.
On the same day McCartney recorded a bass guitar with Distortion effect, Harrison added the party organ, and Starr — drums. Finally, George has recorded lead vocals and McCartney — harmony.
A solo version of "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" was recorded on 25 July 1968. It was performed by Harrison on acoustic guitar, and it included a barely noticeable part of organ in the end of the song. In this version George used a finger picking technique.
This version was included on the album "Anthology 3" album and in "Love" with new orchestral arrangements created by George Martin.
It also contained a verse that was not included in the official version.
