George Harrison's Career

George Harrison was the lead guitar player in The Beatles. George also learned to play the sitar in the 1960s. The sitar is a classical Indian instrument that typically has a gourd for the chamber, and 19 strings. As he played more with The Beatles his musical talent improved. This is shown to the public in songs such as "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" and "Something".

Later in his life, George Harrison organized a charity concert called Concert for Bangladesh. Playing at the concert were other popular artists such as Bob Dylan and Billy Preston. In 1974 George opened up his own record label, "Dark Horse Records". After The Beatles split up, George often played with Bob Dylan and Tom Petty.
