Here Comes the Moon by George Harrison | acoustic
An acoustic guitar lesson on how to play "Here Comes the Moon" by George Harrison. From his 1979 self titled album with Dark Horse records.
I did a lesson on another really beautiful song off of this album a while back called Your Love Is Forever. After doing that one I got quite a few requests for Here Comes the Moon.
George wrote it while in Maui but recorded it in his home studio in Oxfordshire in 1978.
The main attraction of this song for me is the beautiful descending riff that precedes the verses. It's classic George, similar to his descending riffs like in Here Comes the Sun and also that great riff from Badge that he ran through a leslie cabinet.
I've seen people play this riff many different ways, some don't let strings ring, one in particular that does but it requires quite a nasty stretch. There's an easy way to avoid that though and I'll show you how in the lesson.
Other than that, the song is quite simple and should be fairly easy to get together.
It was a lot of fun working on this one. I hope that you get something from the lesson and that it helps you to learn this lesser known but beautiful George Harrison song. Cheers, Andy.
