Due to his understated nature, it took a while for The Beatles to allow George Harrison to be more prominent in the songwriting process, and even then, he still needed to struggle to get his efforts brought to life.

Notably, Harrison’s ace was his close friend, Eric Clapton, the day’s foremost guitarist, whose presence even John Lennon and Paul McCartney could not question.
