In the midst of the breakup of the Beatles, George wrote Here Comes The Sun as a hopeful song that reminded him that no matter how bad things seem to be, he could always slip away (as he did often with Eric Clapton). During one specific trip, he borrowed one of Clapton's guitars and walked through a garden and enjoyed the sunshine.
