7 July 2023 – the chord that George Harrison invented

A lesser known Beatles song written by George Harrison is I Want to Tell You on the 1966 album Revolver.

Speaking with Guitar World in 1992, the publication noted that there was an unusual chord towards the end of the song, to which Harrison replied: “I’m really pleased that you noticed that. That’s an E7th with an F on the top, played on the piano. I’m really proud of that, because I literally invented that chord.”
