It took the death of Prince last week for me to pay attention to the lyrics of George Harrison’s celebrated song, originally released in 1968 with an uncredited Eric Clapton playing lead guitar alongside John, Paul and co. This verse couldn’t fail to provide CliScep inspiration.
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
Learning with every mistake? Reminder of one encouraging moment last month reported at Climate Audit:
The authors thank Nic Lewis for bringing this error to our attention.
Full context there. But almost unprecedented, to use a favourite climate word. That’s learning for you.
Nic’s been playing an amazing solo on climate sensitivity and related matters since at least July 2011, with the latest riff at Judith Curry’s just today. The excuse for this classic video in which the joy of Harrison’s son Dhani at Prince’s guitar solo at the pair’s induction party for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2004 is well worth the free admission.
