George Harrison wrote Here Comes the Sun for the 1969 album, Abbey Road. Arguably, it is the most well-known and loved of George Harrison's song. Harrison was close friends with Eric Clapton, who at the time was part of "Cream." The two had collaborated on a song called Badge, and the riff in that song is quite similar to the bridge in Here Comes the Sun. Harrison himself wrote about the circumstances of his composition: Apple was "getting like school" (lots of people in suits being serious and bureaucratic). Winter in England was clinging on into April. He said, "I went over to Eric Clapton's house. The relief of not having to go see all those dopey accountants was wonderful, and I walked around the garden with one of Eric's acoustic guitars and wrote Here Comes The Sun." Rhythm tracks were recorded on July 7, 1969 without John, who was recovering from an auto accident in Scotland. George capoed his instrument on the seventh fret and redubbed the acoustic guitar. More overdubs, handclaps, orchestral parts and George's Moog were added in August.
