I was amazed, delighted, and charmed when I heard this version. I hope you enjoy this too. It's a video, so broadband is best, but it's worth hearing no matter what.

While My Guitar Gently Weeps
- George Harrison, words and music.

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 and sold 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 guitar gently weeps

I don't know how you were diverted
you were perverted too
I don't know how you were inverted
no one alerted 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

If you understand everything, some things are just as they are. If you understand nothing, things are still just as they are.

That's a cool version, and it is also possible to play that on a mandolin or in an open tuning on guitar.

I don't know how to download it, but there is also a great version - very emotional and powerful - by Jeff Healey. Jeff is a Canadian and lost both eyes at the age of 1 - he is nevertheless one of the most amazing blues and rock guitarists I have ever heard. His concerts are astonishing.

For you Canadians, Jeff is a native of Toronto and has still lives there. He has a club called "Jeff Healey's", and he plays there about once a week.

Much love,

Nobody living can ever stop me

Nobody living can make me turn back:
This land was made for you and me.

wow! Cool version!

At first I thought It wasn't gonna be that great because it was a ukallele (do'know if thats right), but it was great. I've never heard a ukulele sound that good. I didn't even know that they/ it could sound that good. This guy is really tallented.

Thanx for sharing Don. This is one of my all time favorite Bitter-Sweet songs.
