In case George had left the group it would have been because he felt he was limitated ... mainly because he had got tons of songs and the way they were recording was oppress
ive for him ... I think that, after telling this to Eric, he would encoraging him to join the other three ... if Eric was determinated, of course
We all, -almost all of us-, love the three-part harmonies but except This Boy, Yes It Is, Nowhere Man, Because and maybe two or three good vocal arrangements like Paperback Writer or I'm Down they were not thinking too much in that kind of harmonies! ... Had you noticed before that the three-part harmonies were for John's songs? 3.
Paul used to do it prominetly since they stopped touring, I think ... during Sgt. Pepper's sessions he used to record drums and bass, then keyboards, guitars ... but always the arrangement he had previously imagined (or he played it instead: Fixing A Hole, Good Morning, Good Morning ... ) ... during The White Album things were slightly different, I think, because, for example, he played a lot of guitars on his songs, begining with Back In The USSR (he played almost everything on that one except basses and backing vocals), Blackbird, Rocky Raccoon, Why Don't We Do It In The Road, I Will, Mother Nature's Son ... or the guitar part was not relevant at all, mainly because they're piano-based songs, for example: Lady Madonna, Hey Jude, Ob-La-Di Ob-La-Da, Martha My Dear or Honey Pie :
... so I think that that could be the reason why George felt so bad when Paul was saying how to play the guitar part in his Two Of Us that Friday, January 10th, 1969 ... it was so long since he used to do it ... daily!!!
... after all, and after the Get Back project, Paul was awared of how he was behaving in the studio because the others told him! ... and he tried to control and relax himself during the recording sessions for Abbbey Road LP (just few summer weeks) ... so it's proved that they could get on well when they wanted to
Eric's composed few songs through the years ... he usually co-wrote and covered others' songs ... I believe that working with John and Paul in the studio could have been very helpful for him to improve in his writing, I think ... as it had been for George!!!
